Which one of these three baits has worked best for you and what were the results?
Depending on the area I go to,and the conditions/time of year-I would say bring all 3.That what I try to do.I've caught more blues on the shrimp,all 3 species on the shad.
:0a26: i like to use shrimp for drifting for channel cats, livers i use at the spillway for channels. blues seem to like the liver to but not like the channels i caught my biggest off liver. i like to use shad cutbait for blues in winter around deepholes near shallows come spring ill use live shad if i cant get gills down at the spillway. i dont think there is one thats better than the other just that one may work better in diffrent places at diffrent times than another would
Shad, I hardly ever take the other two! :glare:
I take all 3, but depending on what they are biting on. Need all 3 where I dip my hooks
Skipjack or shad definitely take first place. Waaaay back in second place is cured chicken livers.
If I'm running jugs for eating size fish I use liver and shad.
Drifting and still fishing for trophy size blues and flats I use shad and perch and some times carp for bait.
Shad without a doubt for larger channels and flatheads...If I am just fishing for small channels chicken liver.
I've had much more luck with shad.
I got to say - of those three - "it Shad" (Fresh or Fozen) :0a23:
I've gotten some nice size Channels on it.
I've been catfishin' for a year now, and I'd have to go with chicken livers and shad. Shad seem to work better in open water, but chicken livers work better in large creeks and smaller river backwaters. Chicken livers are also easier to keep and very inexpensive.
shad is my main stay bait. i use it all the time with great sucess!!!!!
One lake I fish, the nod goes to shrimp. My other fishing hole gets the chicken liver nod.
out of those three my favorite is shrimp.I live by the st. Johns river and I like to use shrimp when I go night fishing. The biggest catfish that I ever caught was on shrimp.
I have to go with Cutshad ofcourse!!! Really though I have more consistent bites in lakes and spillways on shad. I have had success on shrimp and I still use it, doctored up a bit though. All three will go with me more often than not. Jerry Trew got me interested in cured chicken livers awhile back and they work great. I didn't use them for the longest time because they were difficult to keep on a hook. But if you cure them you can cast them as far as you want and use them on jugs and trotlines. Just depends on the Mr. Whiskers! :glare:
For blues and flats i use cut shad and for channels i would use livers.
They all work good.
