    You can use gills but they have to be caught on pole and line, no netting. They also have to be used in the same lake, river they are caught in. You are not supposed to transport fish from one water system to another.

    My brother and I fished a tournament on Saturday and didn't have much luck. We couldn't find any shad, and the only ones we had were frozen from last year. We couldn't get anything to hit on them. We did end up catching 5 fish, but could only weigh 3 due to 14" minimum. Didn't do so well, but we got out and got to catch some fish and have a good time. Can't wait for the next one.
