    Any of you guys use Hog head suckers for bait much?

    What do you think of them? How do you like them?

    I haven't caught any hog suckers lately to use as bait but I have been using white suckers. The hog suckers should work as well.

    I like the hog head suckers. They seem to live a lot longer than the regular suckers.

    They are ok bait but it seems yellow,red horse and white suckers do better more active in the hook.

    i use them a lot, thats what i caught the flat in my avatar on, we get them in a local creek, anywhere from 2-3 inches up to 14-15 inch, they live a long time as long as you keep the bait tank cool
