First time starting a new topic here. I am really getting geared up to try for cats in the MN River this year and I have a question about live / cut bait. I cannot find hard print information, perhaps I am looking in the wrong spot, but what can you use for bait in MN? I understand that you can use bullheads, alive or cut. Reading through this section of forum I have noticed mention of other species being used for cut bait. Could someone please clarify this for me?
Also, any starter tips for someone fishing from shore? I was planning on using a slip wieght with a circle hook.
