Friend used to fish family farm pond using bluegills and small bream and he would catch some beauties.
I don't care to do this so I do not use live bait, other than worms and minnows when taking kids fishing, so I can't tell you about it but I know it is being used as a technique at private ponds.

I still prefer to throw artificals, kinda makes me feel like I'm out smarting them a little more.
Good luck, you can really catch some hogs that way.

Would this be useful to use for big bass. .
Ask Mr. Kurita, I bet he has a good answer.

Sometimes you just can't beat the real thing, other times artificials will do better for you.
The scale never lies, but yours might be broken.

Trust me these bigger bass don't want a snack they want a meal.
I purchased all blue gill and sunfish colored crankbaits. The norman thin "n" work awesome. Panfish colors for daylite and chartruese for low light conditions(dusk).
Terry at TClark Custom lures made me some larger bass lures in panfish colors i'll have to post some pics of them.
Motivation is the key to success.....
Remember on a bad day just throw the lure you never tried yet.....
