    No different then what ya would use from a boat. Only thing to consider is castin it. If its in the body of water ya are fishin and its legal to use as bait go for it. The fish don't know if ya are in a boat or not. LOL!

    I have done some bank fishin in my time before i was able to buy a boat. I used the same thing from shore as I do in the boat. Makes no difference if you are in a boat or not. The fish don't know:eek:oooh:!!!! But the question to be answered is what are you fishing for? Channels, Blues and or Flatties? Good luck and keep us posted..

    If you are fishin' for channels or blues use cut bait. Cut gills or shad. Chicken livers like the other post said will be great for channels, and or night crawlers. I use cut bait always and always catch about as many as i want to if you have the fish there! Hope this helps and keep us posted on your fishin'!!:big_smile:

    I would say use what you have the most confidence in catching fish with.For me that would be live bluegills,others it would be livers.

    Cut shad, cats love it and you can cast it a mile.
