    ON my recent trip to Lake Erie, (yes I went Walleye fishing, I will admit it), I was catching Sheephead all day long. I want to cut one up & fish for Channels. Has anyone ever used Cut Sheephead?

    never heard of using them for cats, but they r used in the south to fish for alligator gar.
  4. Sheephead is sometimes the bait-of-choice for big flatheads on our stretch of the GMR. Never saw a channel on sheephead, though. Prefer to use the little ones (to about 12 inches) live on a sliprig. Use the head on the big ones. Also use suckers & small carp this way. We fish 'em up out of the boil below the dam using bits of nitecrawler.

    I have done that and caught a few. Not my first choice. But in a pinch, go for it.
