Cut shad or cut bait is a very popular and effective bait for catching blue catfish. Baiting a hook with cut shad may seem like a very simple and straight forward process but there actually is a way to do it wrong, especially when catfishing with circle hooks.

If the cut shad is not baited on the hook correctly when using circle hooks it will double hook itself rendering the hook ineffective causing you to miss fish. This is a good basic practice to follow regardless of what kind of catfish hooks you are using. 

In this video we walk you step by step through the process of using cut shad for catfish bait and how to bait a hook with cut shad.
