i seem to catch more blues on froze shade rather than fresh. usally in the 10 lb range

Hey that is a good fillet size. I've heard as long as you freeze them without water just by theirselves the blood will stay in them longer. Do you have any problem with them getting mushy?
they get mushy if i refreeze them. and stinky.
The place where i get my shad is about 35 miles from my house....so rather than going and getting shad every time I go, I vacum seal all of my shad! That seems to keep them a little more fresh, rather than just ziplock bag that lets air in and then they seem to want to fall off the hook a little easier! You can buy one for about $45 and the bags cost about $10 for 15 bags....that is 15 trips to the river! I usually go for a big shad run and get about 25 or 30 bags, that way I have them when I want to go! I have had good luck on them too!
Lots of people say frozen shad doesnt work very good but it works for me. Good luck and fish often.
our river and lake full off them they work better than any thing here somtimes i cast net a sh... load to save up so i dont have to cast net them all the time. yea i sure would like to go the food saver rout . well thanks yall. fish on
Fresh Shad > Frozen Shad
I seem to have better luck with live shad but have caught my fair share on frozen too.... But mainly larger fish with the live shad..... But im sure its just a prefrence.....
