If you could only choose one
I use a lot of minnows. I don't have a lot of time to hunt bait.
Walter I voted for stink baits. If I'm fishing for numbers, over size of channels,I will choose the stink baits every time.
If I am going to eaters I would not leave home without shrimp. If I am going for size I like Shad or creek chubs. This will vary from one area to another, at least I think so.:big_smile:
My is Nightclawers, Chicken Livers, and Minnows.
Well I'm kind of stuck with prepared baits. I am unable to throw a cast net, so I go for the Sonny's. I was reading in a different post about someone using bacon, and leftover bits of pork fat. I like that idea and can't wait to try it out. Later Andy
Had to vote for the eels. Pure gold up here. LOL!
I have caught more channels on cut frozen shad than anything else I have used
I use chicken livers, minnows and in the spring I like stink bait.
Done my best cutting minnows in half and using both pieces.
Cut shad for quality fish. Stink bait #2 for number of eaters.
DK's punch bait without a doubt.
I had to vote other as Shrimp is my go to bait followed closely by nightcrawlers. Although recently I was having some good success with using smelt. Stink bait rarely works for me up these parts. With the smelt I just recently been having success so I am not sure if its a flue or what have you.
Always have some chicken liver on, although Sonny's sometimes works better when the water is hot. With the bunch I fish with, your first priority is to NOT get skunked.
Cut shad has seemed to work best for me. but i have caught alot on worms and chicken livers
Nice fresh chicken livers...MMMMMMMM
I am fond of using shad for cats around here. Seems to work the best in my opinion.
Of course, it is all dependant on the day. I may switch my answer if the fish are not hitting on shad real quick. LOL
I love to use 6 to 8 inch suckers, cube them up into 1 inch cubes and they work great for me
I use cut Gills when fishing for channels simply because the gills are readily available around here.
And thats more than likely why they work.
