In the heat of the summer its hard for me to get shad in any numbers. I'm averaging 1 shad per 3 casts. That gets pretty tiring. I had the idea of baiting a hole. I don't know for sure but I heard somewhere that shad eat about the same things as carp do. I got an empty mayo jar and drilled a bunch of 3/16 holes in it. Attached some mono to the lid for retrieval. Added 4oz of weight and filled it full of bread. I didn't catch 1 shad after throwing out the chum jar. I did however catch about 20 lbs of carp. Question is do shad not eat bread? Or did the large number of carp spook the shad from the area? What would you use in the jar to attract the shad? Or is chumming for shad even possible?
