    cut shad or shrimp are my go to baits.

  3. ive been using bluegills, warmouth, red ears, suckers, shad, creek chubs (has found a honey hole for some monster creek chubs we caught some this weekend weighing close to 1lb.) pretty much live or cut bait.
  4. i've had my best luck on skipjack, bluegills/heads, skipjack, skipjack, shad/heads, and also skipjack. if you cant tell there is a preference for skippies

    Ive personally had a lot of luck on cheese and if you take a trebel hook and put some sponge down in it and dip it in blood, which you can get some from your local butcher or meat company.. there glad to get rid of it.. and let it sit in the fridge in protective bags of course it will clot and slowly lets out the blood and it works really really really well.
