    Creek chubs are a great bait! They carry alot of scent, and are also a soft skinned bait making it a prime rib for cats!:wink::roll_eyes::wink: rollo

    Yeah I use them a lot. I seem to do better with them at lakes then at the old OH river though. Their the most masterful escape artists ever ! They just amaze me sometimes. They are also a nice long living bait.

    cant go wrong with creek chubs, especially curled, the bait holes i have they are abundant in along with gills, and warmouths(which IMO are some of the toughest gills there are), suckers, shad, carp and i usually can get a nice variety of bait from my holes, which makes it easy to pattern what the fish are feeding on.

    I like creek chubs, sucker and carp minnows in the 5 to 8" range. They are hard to come by at times around here.

    In the spring and fall, creek chubs are my favorite bait.

    Creekchubbs are great bait, but don't fare well in baitbuckets plus their meat is soft so be careful when casting a chubb.

    Hook them thru the lip.That way the current makes them face upstream so water passes over their gills .It keeps them alive a lot longer:wink:
