    Default where to get gizzard shad

    where do you guys that fish wateree catch some bigger bait like 6 inch plus gizzard shad? all i ever catch are 2-4 inch threadfin. i managed to catch a few large gizzard shad when catchin the threadfin sometimes but not very often. i like using them better than perch or bream personally but can never get ahold of them. thanks for any help

    yeah i can usually find schools like that but there never seem to be any gizzards in there maybe a dozen under 3 inches for 10 dozen gizzard and its really rare for me to find the ones over six inches i cant figure out why
