Hello all, Im new the BOC and i was wondering if someone could help me out. This is a long story, but here goes. Im 26 years old and I have recently moved 63 miles away from the Mississippi river. Now with the new location came the problem of no bait. There are two rivers near by, ( North and South Fabious) but neither are big enough to hold a marina or even a Boat dock. I dont own a boat. I have been out many days looking in different spots for shad to be working the surface, and have thrown the cast net till my arms fell off, and every time the result is the same empty net and higher stress level. Anyways, the real question is where else would shad be? I dont wanna drive for 2 hours (round trip) to get bait. That is 2 hours lost fishing. Thanks for the help. ALL is needed.
