I went fishing yesterday and have now discovered my favorite bait. There were a bunch of small bluegill (3-5 inches) right in front of me, so i caught a bunch. I had never used them live before, but they weren't big enough to effectively use for cutbait, i mean i could've, but i didn't wanna cut up all those little fish. So i but them on a 6/0 hook through their back below the dorsal, and but them about 2 feet up from a 2 oz. weight. I caught about 12 channels all about 25-30 inches weighing between 6-10 lbs.
