Side by side and the deadbait always outproduced for me, probably by a wide margin but I have caught a fair number on worms.

Croix pout are for sure a needle in a hay stack, I must have caught ten mud puppies before I got the pout and I was just about to go home but something told me to stay a little longer and lo and behold! This one absolutly engulfed a 6/0 circle hook with a crawler wad. Crawerls for the win again!

Ya just Can't catch um from the couch.

I also should add that the worms I was using were seasoned with my own blood because I managed to hook myself rather deep when i was remvoing a mud puppy a few minutes prior to catching the pout. (multiple exceptionaly loud expletivies were also used)
