Creek chubs are one of the top freshwater bait fish for targeting big game fish. There are times when creek chubs will out fish any other bait you can think of using. At other times, they will barely get bit, but when they do, you are probably going to be catching a big fish. Creek chubs are excellent for largemouth bass, walleye, northern pike, and muskie. They will also catch big smallmouth bass and catfish. Creek chubs can be found in many bait shops and you can catch them in shallow creeks and streams with a small piece of worm or corn.
