    we were using fresh cut shad, use the head on one pole and the middle section on the other pole then throw the tail away. what i do is catch shad put them in baggies and put them on ice right away. you can do this with chubs and suckers also, the key is to make sure you keep them fresh. i have used frozen shad in the past, now that i use fresh shad my catch is 8 to1 over frozen shad.

In what type of water should i go about looking for shad and how to get them... i have frozen ones.... but just aint the right thing i guess... i got a ton of shad about 2 months ago... but they aint there anymore. any help on that very appreciated.
