Yeah I’ll try it from time to time. Live minnows seem to catch a lot of Crappie though.

I don’t do it anymore but I did for a few years, I always used live perch and if I couldn’t come up with that I would use cut buffalo. Seemed to work good..

I tried it all back 20 years ago when I jug fished and except for flatheads, I could out catch live bait with cut bait every time. To each their own but trying to keep bait alive is just another of the many problems encountered while fishing.

I have used whole sunfish and Warmouths with pretty good success. Caught 3 Ops over 20lb on one trip and several good 5-10lb Ops. Whole crawfish work good too.

Sure. If it’s available and want to. All works at times.


The RIGHT to an opinion does not give any validity to that OPINION.

I’ll fish with whatever bait I can catch. Cut bait them when they die. Back in the day we would start limb lining with hot dog weenies to get started and then use the cut rib cages off filleted fish after the first run. This was when we didn’t have time to catch bait.

Jugging for anything other than non-gamefish and catfish is illegal.

Some anglers swear by bullheads, especially when limb-line fishing for flatheads.

Bullheads, small carp (under 2lbs), and bluegill are all good baits, the issue is finding them

I prefer to use cut bait on jugs and live bait on rods. Live bait catches too many fish that are not catfish, and I prefer to keep those, which is legal on rods, but not on jugs.
