Question by fisher girl. Uploaded on October 30, 2009
Unfortunately we cant use them as bait in NH. Chicken livers work real good roll them in salt to get them congealed first then throw 2-3 on the hook. Good cheap bait!
They work very well for flat heads. Chicken liver are goog for channel cat. They sell gold fish at our local bait shops, cheaper than a pet store. LOL
They work about as well as native softfin forage,but I have seen their use or release ruin a fishery.I use all types of native fish or purchase baitfish(never goldfish),but prefer bluegill.I believe catfish are more agressive because of the dorsal spines.For whatever reason they are my go-to bait because I out- fish my friends that use other baits.
I've used them before but like beaverlog I like "bream" the best !
Good Luck and Good Fishing !
It's illegal to use / introduce non native fish in my state so the answer is no./
As 86Ram and other have touched upon, avoid using non-native baits. Most of the biggest invasive problems faced in fisheries management are caused by the fishermen themselves using non-native baits.
they are good bait you have to cut ohh the head and tail and get all of the scales off
yea we use alot at paylakes here in ohio
