    Hey, does anyone know of a place that sells frozen Shad besides Shad sides? I am going thru hell getting any netted and need some bait for tonight. Any help would be appreciated. If anyone in the area has some to spare, I would be greatful. I sure can't get them myself and have never had a problem before.

    throw your net over by the bridge and on the other side where its 3ft deep you will get all you need. when you go under the bridge to your left throw your net and you will get them

    That can be a decent place to go. Right now it is hard to get good shad, but not impossible and soon there will be a big boom of small shad around. I have been finding my shad in deeper water and letting that net get down 8 to ten foot. For bait tonight though. 40 woods does carry whole shad, shad sides and shad guts most of the time.

    Thanks guys, I went to 40 woods and got some shad as well as some cut mackerel. I haven't tried mackerel yet but I have heard it works. I will of course have my big pole baited with a big old green sunfish. Theres a Flathead I really want to get my hands on in Jacomo.

    If your buying the hold shad from 40 Woods. The hole shad are really small. You would be better off just buying cut shad
