As I been fishin all winter an spring, the shad are startin to become more readily available from the bank. I have been catchin some perty big shad. Least big in my book. So I got to thinkin.......With all this catch and release goin on, Why not include the baitfish? Afterall, if yer gonna havta cut it to size, why not put it back and catch the smaller baitfish and let the giant shad go on to breed more giant shad? What works for one fish orta work for all fishes. Lets make sure our kids have bait to fish with. Release all bait over ........Say, six inches.
