looking to try cut bait for catfishing. Usual use nightcrawlers or stink bait, but am looking to filter the Rockbass and small cats. 

I'm gunna buy a couple decoy suckers and use. But am wondering how to humanely kill and cut up? Or do I just cut umm alive while flopping like a serial killer?

yeah, with larger suckers i just pre-cut the bait and keep in a little cooler so it stays fresh. I usually use a treble hook and chicken liver, but when i use cut bait a circle hook is my go to.

I agree on circle hooks, just remember you don’t need to set the hook hard just pull tight. When we go up to LOTW and fish in Canada you can’t bring in live bait so these use soda water instead. If that helps you feel better about killing your cut bait

Humanely euthanizing a fish is relative to each fish, from my personal experience. I usually have a nail I put into the head, entering from the top between gill plate and eyes. But some fish have itty bitty brains and it's impossible to kill them that way. Those fish need a good bonk on the head so it goes sleepy-night-night before you remove the head.
