    Small spoons work. I usually put a small spoon on the end of my sabiki rig (1/8 - 1/4 ounce). It serves as an extra "flash" as well as weight to cast. My biggest skips will oftentimes come on the spoon. Beware though if white bass are in the area, LOL.

    That's ok, I'll grind them up and add a little flavor and use em for chum.....Or fillet em and soak em in a brine to add flavor...Does white bass make good cutbait????Thanks for the info....Dwight

    White bass? Fillet them, soak them overnight in your favorite venison jerky marinade, and dry them, either in a smoker or in an electric oven at 140 or less. That's about as low as my electric oven will go; my gas oven won't go anywhere near that low.
