I am planning on running some spring bank poles opens April 1st in WI. I will generally be on small streams and on the Mississippi River. With the current VHS rules (fish disease) in place seining minnows or catching creek chubs and using them on the river is difficult and troublesome. I plan to use bullhead, small perch and bluegills when I can. Looking for any advise on using dip (stink) bait or other bait (dough) that I may be able to use. Not looking for monsters just some nice eaters. Am also looking for advise on the difference live bait will make over dead? Thanks in advance for your help.
