Why not go with gizzards they will tolerate much colder temperatures? ... at least gizzards would make it through the cold winter and that would be better then no food at all.
I agree. I've heard the case that Threadfin don't get too big to not be eaten, so they are preferred. But what are you wanting to feed - something with a small mouth? Seems to me that Hybrids, LMB, and Saugeye, have mouths that can either accept a bigger bait, or cut it in pieces to consume it. Wouldn't something be better than nothing? The Skiatook hybrids are looking thin these days. And some Okieland lakes are just busting at the seams with bait.
The more you practice, the luckier you get.
