    Very nice fish! What have you been catching them more on, live or cut bait?

    I was wondering how your catching them too but more interested in how you make them smile.

    I've only caught one on dead bait was a last ditch effort for a channel cat to complete our stringer for a tournament last year and caught a 47 a few feet off the bank at the marina at 6 am thru a dead 6 inch creek chub out off the back of the boat while we was unloading the boat..bait was in water maybe 30 seconds when he ran with it
