    Default Favorite Bait for Jug Fishing


    A post in another thread got me thinking about what everyone might use for baiting their jugs or noodles. Please post what your favorite baits are and where you fish.

    My favorites are blue gills and creek minnows.

    I fish Center Hill in Mid TN

    Any particular brand of hot dog? Some folks I know use the red, "old-fashioned" kind that have a "skin" on them. Is that what you use?

    Thanks!

    If I know that I am going about a week in advance, I have my favorite bait shop get me some minnows about 4-6 inches long. (I have caught large crappie, chanel cats and flatheads in the same outing on my favorite lake. )

    If I leave in a hurry, I have about 15 pounds of frozen shad in my freezer that will thaw quickly in hot water.

    Recently, someone on my favorite lake told me that he uses pink Zote soap. He even gave me a bar of it to try. (I had been fishing all day, he may have wanted me to bath with it.)

    Pole fishing Channel Catfish or Blues
    Catalpa Worms , Turkey Liver, Shad,Nightcrawlers, and have used about anything from bull blood to dough stink baits.

    Setlines for all including Flatheads is live baits like Bream (Green Sunfish is best , then any other type .) Those bigger Channels will tear up some Bream. If I can't catch Bream , then big Shiners , and last resort Goldfish.

    For channels and blues:
    -Deer liver & heart...usually get enough to last my week-long fishing trip.
    -Beef liver, bull liver if you can get it
    -fresh shad
    -catalpa worms
    -if all else fails, cheap wiennies soaked in Strawberry jello.

    Flatheads:
    -6"-8" live bullheads, polliwogs, mudcats #1 choice
    -3"-4" live bluegills, longear, red-breasted sunfish or warmouth; don't use redears, die rather quick!
