Haven’t seen any in years. As a kid I always got the job of seining bait. We were overjoyed when I caught them. We used them as live bait. My Dad would have grounded me for cutting one. Red tail shiners were the real golden nugget though. Good luck, cut or live!

I have used golden shiners in the past when I could get them. The bigger the better. You can use them live or cut. I have caught lots of ten to twenty pound cats on them.

You did better than me as a kid since my job was always carrying the minnow bucket. Seining bait was about as much fun as fishing. We used to get what they called "red horse" minnows, and they were the best.

I wouldn’t cut them up. I have caught some BIG ones(like 12-15”), way bigger than you would ever find at a bait store, while netting bait for flatheads and in ponds. Never used them cut, but the flatheads like the big ones alive and so do the big channel cats. My guess would be that blues would eat the big live ones about like they’d eat bluegill, carp, and bullheads. Most bait shops only carry crappie sized ones in the 2-3” range, and if you don’t know where to net some, those extra large ones get real expensive quick.
