    I have used them before, they seemed to be about the same as Gizzard Shad which is great. Fresher the better of course, although I have also used Frozen.

    menhaden and mullet work great like Zakk said the fresher the better. I have brined mullet and did good with it I wonder if menhaden would work brined also.

    Ive used them before but was not impressed with them for catfish. I am not sure if it was the time of year or what but the catfish were swimmin right past it to eat the chunked eels
