    you prefer cut, live or prepared baits!
    i use all three during the course of the season. pre-spawns like gobs of nitecrawlers!

    This by all means isn't live, but round here some of the guys use corn & dough balls. Seems to work rather well.

    havent found out what the cats like here, all that I talk to are Bass nuts. I cant afford to rent a boat let alone buy one. so I will probably break the law here and run 4 poles at the same time to see what works. my luck I will lose 3 of the 4 !!!!!!! Has anyone ever used soap as cat bait? I have and it works! I have used Ivory and that soap you use on your clothes that comes in a bar. go ahead and have your fun.

    had decent luck with livers too. used hot dogs a few times, nothing to brag about though. smaller ones. gobs of night crawlers get good results though.

    At work tonight I asked a couple fishermen what they used. One said they'll cut bait using shad. The concensus seemed to be that anything with a strong scent would do the trick
