    Is there any way to catch shad with a ultra light outfit. I fish the little miami which is a river coming of the ohio river and there are shad up against the shore 1/2 pounds to 1 pound.

    Would it be easier to just net them?

    Use a Saltwater Sabaki rig with a 1-2 ounce weight on the bottom and throw it out and jig it up and down moderate speed......it might be easier to net them, if you can actually see them then it would diffently be easy to net them....good luck :)
