    I'm really happy to hear that someone is catching something on them. I just never did have much luck with them. I'm sure they are a good bait,they just don't like meI guess.:roll_eyes:

    Never caught cats on shiners but once I thought my buddy had a nice cat till we pulled the striper out of the water. haha. If you can catch some American Shad those will work better then shiners.
