You use that for bait? holy crap !!!! I have tried whole sunfish at the river and Blue Marsh but I wasn't there at night which is when catfish eat so it was no use.But I use shrimp a lot at the river near Birdsboro and haul in some good size channel cats between 24"-30" so I'm ok with that for now,lolImpale it with a 10/0 hook and toss near some wood.
I catch many smallies for bait in the summer months.
The are very lively and stay on your hook wothout dying all night.
