    He's talking about the shad the sell in a jar (not the blister packs) ..

    Its shad, but basically dehydrated and then stuck in that jar will some kind of solution.. Least thats what a jar a buddy of mine had looked like..

    Like I told him, just buy a cast net and catch fresh... Nite and day difference in results :wink:

    Fresh shad smells bad enough. I can only imagine the kind of odor dehydrated and jarred ones would put out. :smile2:

    Just don't leave shad in your boat for a few days, especially during THIS season. I have it on good authority that the results won't be pleasant :wink:.

    Welcome to the BOC Thomas! We're glad you're here! :big_smile:

    Welcome to the BOC Thomas. Was the shad in a jar frozen. We have some around my area like that. It works alright. But I have seen some stuff that was suppose to be shad but i dont believe it was. Welcome and good luck out there. Andrew
