Cut vs Live bait for Flatheads

1753 Views 14 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  pawclaws
In years past almost all my Flats have come on "live" bait...But this year has been much different cut has out fished live bait 10 to 1...My biggest flat ever came this year on cut frozen shad 50-lbs....So I think till it stops producing, cut bait, such as Shad or Sucker will be my bait of Choice, no more wasting time catching and keeping live bait alive.

I have caught them on both. I guess i will still keep both live and frozen on hand.
I have tried different commercial baits and some dip baits and only caught small cats. Just tried it to see what would happen. I would have to say stick with the natural baits.
