You are not limiting your catch. Those lake shad should do a fine job for you.Ok guys I have a question that I have been trying to get answered for quite sometime. As far as bait goes, Is it necessary to catch bait from the waters you fish. In other words, I have a local lake that I can land 50-100 shad close to a pound a piece with one throw of the net. I hear various comments about this. Most sway to having to catch shad from the river. Will these shad from the local lake work just as well or am I limiting my catch?
