Alright BOC'rs here's the question. I've always heard that if you freeze shad(say in a block of water in a ziplock bag) that when you thaw them they're all mushy and won't stay on a hook, especially if you're trying to cast a couple miles. I cut big shad in half and put them on number 8 circle hooks. It seems that the muscle and bone in the top half of a large shad wouldn't get mushy even if you froze it. What say you BOC'rs?
