I've never used them, but I have only heard bad things about them. Yuo should be able to find some kind of natural bait in your area.

I just used some this weekend the stinkbait outdid it easily. The only reason I bought is because I was not able to get some fresh but I will surely not buy it again.

Listen to the katmaster. Good advice there. Those packaged shad aren't worth the plastic bag they are put in.

I find it difficult to believe that there are not shad in your waters. That said, I do not know which waters you fish. I would highly recommend a cast net and throw it into the whitewaters of your nearest spill way. Any rough fish will work. I use them cut. Actually have had great luck with the fillets, not just the bloody part.
