    I would say to use either chicken or turkey livers... either that or gut some chad and hold on because if you put either one of those three on, they will be biting.

    I usually use live bait. Baby carp or crawdads work good. Caught sum big channel and flathead.

    get your wife's old panty hose, cut a piece about 6inches squared or just the toe out. put chicken or turkey liver in the middle, wrap it at the top and tie it off. this let's the smell and blood out into the water and it will last for a couple days. just run the hook right through the middle. make sure they are the throw away panty hose! i made that mistake once.

    I like using live shad or skipjack the best. Its typically easy to get with a cast net on the river. Cut bait is fine too.

    I have had a lot of luck with live bluegill and something stinky with lines on the Neosho. Alternate hooks with the two baits and you should catch something.
