    FRESH!
    In order of preference: mullet, menhaden, spanish sardines, ladyfish, whatever else...

    Cut bait would be mullet. The best bait for reds would be crab though. Snip the corners off the shell, rip the hard back off from back to front and run a hook through the middle.

    Any crab works but the larger ones are better. I use blue and speckled the most.
