    White bass make very good live bait for flatheads. They're tough and lively. I've not had a lot of success with them as cut bait.

    I haven't been up there in a while, but when we used to go on vacation in the Marblehead area we used to slam the channel cats off the bank buy the lighthouse on nightcrawlers. I remember a few occasions hauling the stringer and a few buckets full of them back to the cleaning table at the cottages. Curious as to what its like up there now. Good luck out there!!!
