Cutbait question

3 posts in this topic

When using smaller suckers for cut bait, do you guys still fillet? I've been cutting them up in chunks instead and having decent luck.

Do you guys use fishheads? I've seen a few postings talking about this. I've had runs using fishheads but never caught any kitties.

I don't think it matters if there are fish bones in the cut bait (hence not filleting). Just looking for input from you experienced guys.

I as many do use the pices cut of the sucker, shad or creek chub and also a bullhead. Yes, I do also use the head with some meat.

I do fillet of the side meat on a bullhead but that may be just me.

The small bones won't hurt the bite.

I'm not afraid to use the head and or a big piece of cut bait, in fact my favorite cut bait the head section of a 6-7" creek chub that's been cut in half.
