do any of you guys use sabiki rigs to catch carp?
Never man, we just use sibikis to catch skipjack. every once in a great a white bass will grab on but I cant say Ive ever got carp.
lol im sorry, i meant shad. i just happened to be watching a video on carp fishing. whoopse
Just cast nets or umbrella nets.
ive tried my cast net and it seems like when i get close enough to a school of shad they move. ill try around some docks at indian lake tomorrow morning
I caught a carp on a rooster tail the other day at east fork. but not a sabiki
I don't think you will be catching shad on a lure unless you snag them. They don't eat bugs. Mooneye look a whole lot like shad and they will attack small lures like that. I think the shad we usually use (gizzard and threadfin) eat plankton.
Cast net is the way to go to catch shad.
good news guys...indian ake must be loaded with shad cuz i got some on every cast of the net. i fish a stone cory close to my house thats loaded with channels. there are alot of shad in there too but the problem is i cant catch any with my net. i bet i can catch them easier on indian lake because its much shallower
thanks for your input guys i think my problem is solved
Wish I knew where Indian Lake was at, I'd love to give it a try. :big_smile:
its in logan county. if you know where interstate 33 is head west on 33 and cruise untill you run into lakeview, you can see it from the road. (im guessing your from southern ohio)
SW. I'm in Cincinnati. :tounge_out:
I have always found a lot of shad in East Fork also.
I've been getting some pretty good shad in my friends cast net lately, thats the only way I know how to catch them.
Just wondering if you guys freeze your shads or use them live?
Very difficult to keep them alive long. Best bet...keep a few for live, but put the rest on ice as soon as you catch them. Keeps them from getting 'stale' after they die. Fresh frozen is the way to go.
