yeah, I've read them alot here fishing from a boat, piers, and surf...my first redfish was from the surf caught on cut bait. so it does not have to be a live bait.

try to catch you some white trout, I seem to have the best luck with using them for cut bait for reds, menhaden work well too. I've also made religion out of throwing a chum bag behind the boat when I go out

A chum bag? Do you just put some cut up frozen bait, like you can get at a tackle store? Do you drag one of those plastic bait buckets or what do you use for a bag? That is an interesting idea, I would think you would also attract sharks.

if you go to walmart or academy (I'm sure other places carry them, thats just where I get mine) in the bait freezer theres a tub that says CHUM, it already comes in a bag, just tie that bag off to a rope, and hang it behind your boat when your not moving. I tie it tight enough to keep it on there, but loose enough that if a shark where to come up and get it, it's not gonna take me and my boat with it. I haven't had to big of a problem with it bringing in sharks.


Also, make sure you leave it out of the cooler, put the tub in the boat on your way from the store to the launch, otherwise it'll be a big block of ice for your first hour or two. I've been told to fill that tub with menhaden milk overnight first, but keep forgetting to buy a jug of it

Man I tell ya.. I was using live shrimp, dead shrimp, and artifical lures, not to mention trolling with a stretch 25 at about 3 knots. I havent hooked up with a single bite. Now I'm hearing that they are all about Pogies and Menhaden. Oh and on tuesday they like cut bait.. I cant keep every type of bait in the boat.. LOL!! I feel like hunting the Reds are like finding Ole Nessie.. I'm about to just break down and hire a Cpt..

You know what, I will always use shrimp (dead or alive) for bait. But catching those "monster" (or any monster), it will be cut bait for me. Why? I don't have the luxury of owning a boat, otherwise it will all about lures. I fish from the surf and love every minute. Or I can make a trip to Joe Patties and get it....
