    Finding this site lead me to the secret 7 dip bait and using the dip bait has made fishing for channels around here even more fun:smile2:.

    I'm going to get some frozen shad from the bait shop,one of these days and try it,I have never fished using "cut bait or live bait".I have always been a dough ball bait/dip bait cat fishermen.

    Thanks again

    get fresh shad or cut bluegill, that frozen wont get as many or as big cats, i fish in the spillway for flatheads, lost alot of big flatheads on snags but, there hitting like mad, exept for the last 2 days
