    It's pretty sick... It's looking like illegal to me... I cannot believe that dogs for shark's bait?!?!?! I would say it's better to use tuna for shark's bait.

    I have threatened to do this before with kittens, but it was a joke. Sheila didn't find it very funny. I won't show her these links because she would be on the next flight out to the Po River! Then again...

    I once found several puppies tied with rags on big hooks hung above the water.This was the upper part of "Rock Creek" at Naples FL. in the 50's.I had seen a adult that I knew just leaving the area.I was told that this was a "Old practice" to catch Gators.The noise was suppose to call Gators in a hurry.Some one call the Game warden as he showed up,questioned me,and left with the puppies.We never heard any more,but the hooks had disappeared the next day.I love you Brothers and Sisters.peewee

    As if the we don't have enough trouble with PETA as it is. That's all we need. I know most all flatheaders, myself included, use live bait, but we have to draw the line somewhere. For me, that's fish - I'll use pretty much any bug or fish as bait, but nothing "above" that. Nothing with legs (less than 6) or with warm blood. I know some people use salamanders, but I won't even do that.

    That just teed me off;. maybe someone needs to hang them out there on a hook and use them for bait. Poor babies.

    whats the difference between using kittens for cut bait and using a chicken breast? Is it because some people keep cats for pets? If i kept chickens for pets then that would be more offensive to me.
    Cats are just another animal, they are a problem here in texas and have been proven to be a major predator of the natrual quail population.

    Ill back James on this, I personally would use them but why is it bad????? I cant stand cats and I wouldnt use it for bait but just becuase there are some domesticated ones out there???? Im not sure if Im saying this correctly so please dont take offense I wouldnt use anything warm blooded but why is using a gill/bream so much less??

    It is a old and common practice to use the dead and wounded for bait in warfare.To "take the bait" can cause our troops to lose their lives today.Humans of all ages have been and are being used for "live bait" to kill other humans.Not only as bait but living traps to conceal explosives.Some see no difference in Shad,Cats,Dogs,human infants or the elderly.Slavery is still openly practiced in some countries.We fight it,but we have not stopped it.Will we ever?I find it heartbreaking.I love animals,but I wonder why we cain;t raise as much hell about the humans used for bait.Have we just learned to accept it because it has been so common for so many years?I love you Brothers and Sisters.peewee

    I personally hate cats, but I would never use them for bait or even a dog for that matter. I have known people around here that have used live kittens as bait on trotlines and these people I think are the scum of the earth and I have not or will not ever fish with them. As far as using chicken breasts or livers etc. i would use them because those chickens have already been processed. I would not ever use a live chicken for bait.
