    Found my shad honey hole today and was just wondering if any of you put them on ice while heading to your fishing spot? Or do you just keep them in a bucket until ready to use? I am going to cut them.

    I am going to catch my shad in Westerville then drive to Zanesville.

    Thanks for any help

    Keeping them on ice will keep them firm as long as you keep them above the water

    Most would ICE them ASAP for the Flatheads,\. The fresher the better. Frozen is not near as good but better than no Shad.

    I have seen it where the Flats only wanted the Shad Heads.
