Do any of you use live bait for going after big bass?
If you are using bluegill, what is the biggest you will use?
If you are using little bass, could you use one longer than a bluegill due to the difference in body shape?
Anyone ever use frogs?
Preferred rigging Technique:
A) Freeline (drift)
B) 3-Way swivel with use of large weight
Live bait is a pain the rear to use. It fishes very slow and is messy. I typically only do that if I'm going after highly pressured trophy fish. On private water, you might seriously be costing yourself fish per hour by using slower to present live bait.
If you are going to use live bait though, no need to look past waterdogs, shiners, and crawfish.
