    Is it to catch gizzard shad from a cooloing lake, take it to my fishing hole a couple miles away, cut it up or use them dead in another body of water?

    Definently contact your local DNR office. As a general rule of thumb you are not supposed to take bait from one body of water and use it in a different one (live or dead) because of the chance of spreading diseases and such from one lake to the next.
