yes it works well , stays on the hook better too
I've used big CC Shad, works great! Nice and oily :thumb:
Never tried it personally but I've heard it works great from several people.
Its works quite well, I actually perfer it for cat fishing but it works well for both pike and lakers. One tip though, scale it first, works much better.
Carp is an oily fish... So yes. I prefer halved shiners though... Easier to handle.
