    I think Shad is my favorite cut bait, but anything fishy smelling will go in a pinch gills, drum, carp,shrimp. I usually use gill as live bait.

    Nightcrawlers. I think because it is so versatile. I can use it for cats as well as other fish, if the urge hits me to fish for something else.

    Live and cut eel is the best. No fish can clean the hook. They will wiggle and stay alive even when they are cut in half. Flats, blues, and channels love them. I have caught 2 blues in the mid 50# range on cut eels and numerous ones from 40# on down to 5#'s. I caught many flatheads on live eels biggest so far only 35# but started fishing for them late last year. Biggest channel so far is 19# on cut eel.

    Welcome to the BOC Joshua!!! The people on here will be glad to help if you have a specific Question. This one is a little vague, so I would say just cruise the board and check out the threads that would intrest you and if you have any Questions about some thing just ask brother!!!

    Now to the Question at hand..... HMMMM let's see HMMMM......OH I got it, If I can't catch it in a cast net it don't get put on the hook!!!!!
    I will use Shad cut, live, or whole. Skipjack cut, or whole,and bluegills live, cut, or whole!!! Other than those it is a waste of time for me, JMO!!!
