I have a question for you all!! I am thinking of keeping some shad when I get in to a bunch of them this spring. I want to keep them for this summer when bait is tougher to find mainly as a back up if I can not get fresh. I know you can freeze them, have done a few over the years. What do bait shops do when you buy jars of shad, not frozen? How do they process or prepare the bait before they jar it up? Had good success last summer using some shad that was in a jar from a bait shop, but can not get back to the shop anytime soon as it is not close to where I live. Any help would be greatly appreciated, good or horror stories also. Thanks guys!
