    weird but true iv had the best luck cuting my bait with a 1/2" wide glazing knife its dull but cuts shad easy enough and the blade is stiff but not to stiff

    I use a sharp fillet knife normally. If I have to cut bait on site, I'll use my swiss army knife.

    i use a pair of kitchen scissors.Most "big box" stores sell them for a few bucks in the same sections where knives and silverware are sold.Most of them are stainless and they work great!Also a set of garden pruners for big shad!

    I use those pruning scissors with the serrated blade and orange handles that wall-mart sells for about $8 or so. They work great because they have a notch in one blade that helps hold the bait as you cut it. Works good on cutting those tough new braided lines also.

    I seldom use a knife I like stepping on the bait. It makes a cool popping noise and seems to do the trick.
