Hey guys for the most part I've always fished with shad, occasionally I'll go on the hunt for skips. But this year I've been branching out with bigger baits. I know this might offend some anglers(it even hurts my feelings since I love all game fish), but it seems like every time I turn around I got a stripper in my cast net. In years past I couldnt bring myself to use the guy as bait. But in the constant search for the "holy sh_t" size cat....I've changed my thinking and decided to use them. Normally I dont have much luck, but last night I hooked into a nice size fish on a 2+ pound stripper, unfortunately my "heavy duty" steel leader didnt hold up. My question to you though....whats the biggest live bait you've used? What type of fish was it? And how much luck had you had with it?
