Default Fly fishing and Spin fishing.. COMBO!!

So put them to together and this is what I got...

So I have been super busy these days. I have not been post at all but does not mean I am not fishing. So something crossed my mind.. You all say I catch bait... so I put them together.. I use my fly rod and fly fish and if I catch what you guys call "bait" I put it in my floating minnow bucket and work my way to the holes. Now once I get to the holes I hook my "Bait" and let it swim freely in the water... then I watch these fish tear it to shreds. Now I find this a bit alarming but also quite fascinating and educational. I do notice once the smallies get the "bait" the spit it out and take it in head first. I never noticed this but since watching this my hook ups for big smallies on the fly have increased. But hope you enjoy and thanks for the idea guys...
The "Bait" I am using is from 7-12inches...

LOL

Thats cool to be able to watch how the fish react to different baits. They must be a fall feeding binge to be chasing chubs that size.

I've done it, especially in small neighborhood ponds that i knew held big bass that wanted nothing but the real thing. I would use the fly rod to catch my "bait" a 3-4 in bluegill, and then rig him up with the baitcasting set up. I've caught more large bass that way than any other.. I know it's probably frowned upon on a fly fishing forum but there was an over abundance of bluegill... and I like catching big bass.
