    A friend of mine threw his net for four hours about three weeks ago and got one bucket full and gave me half. they were small. It is the wrong time of year to get them easy. I cant find any in the bait shops around here. I live in muscatine. Good luck.

    Rippinlips, that bait shop down by GPC doesnt have any? Do they have shad guts? If they do you should buy them up. Thats what were really nailing channel cats on now.

    The shad around DES MOINES will not start to run for a couple months and may not hit the peak till around september, It is always a plus to get them the year before..... Mike you should know this by now..... even dean waits till sep. oct. to get them

    when I was out last week I saw a few guys netting for hours and didn't catch a single one. I talked to dean and he said he doesn't usually start catching them real well till august.
