What size treble hook for cut bait or cut shad
Gpiforever1 (1 year ago)
Can you put cut bait on a trebled hook
Catfish Edge (1 year ago)
You can but typically best to only fish with trebles if you have to. Check out the T3 Triple Threat Catfish Hooks https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=34-rdNRxrHM

Would 8/0 circle hooks and offset be perfect size for blue ? Or is that to big ?
Catfish Edge (1 year ago)
+Sturgeon Outdoors depends on the size bait you're using and how big the blues are

I was using J hooks last night and missed some big bites. Headed out to buy some circle hooks and to find a good source for shad since they are only catch and release here.

Thanks for the video !!! !!

No matter what kind of cut bait i use i always run the hook through the eyes. Its worked for me so far and have been doing it that way for years now.

Despite the negative comments the idea behind this video is incredibly important and overlooked. Many people including myself forget such basic concepts such as bait twist and hook exposure. This idea is relevant for all types of cat-fishing too.

Man, couldn't see anything you were doing. Half the time your hands were out of the frame & the rest of the time your hands were blocking so the viewer saw nothing.

Really like the information that's given on here

This is more of a general circle hook question, but can you rig a strip (fillet) of cut bait on circle hook? Is it at simple as just hooking it once and letting it hang? Or is it better to hook it, bring it to the top (near the eye of the hook) and then hook it again near the bottom? Thanks!
Ron Woodruff (6 years ago)
Thanks for that tip. I've been doing it wrong, and have noticed it. Gonna start hooking them right now.

I've used shad a few times and had absolutely no luck. In my expirience cut bluegill, redear, and sunfish, except the green sunfish, will catch blues, bullheads, and large channels. Flatheads prefer them alive. I've heard the green sunfish work too i've just never had any luck with them. Beware of gar, turtles, and cottonmouths as they also love this bait and can become quite annoying.
