    has anyone used rainbow trout for cutbait before and if so did you do any good, i have 2 - 1 1/2lbs. rainbows that i put in the freezer for cut bait this summer, also had some good eating ones that hit the spot.

    I would think that they would work good for bait in the early spring for Flats, cause they are a soft bodied fish that the Flats should be able to digest easily. I know I am going to try it out this year. Oue opening day of trout is on April 4th.

    I dont know about rainbow trout but i used to know some guys that swore by using brown trout. We never used them tho for fear of getting caught and hosed with fines....think its illegal here...maybe not tho...hope it works for ya...let us know!
