Been trying to catch some shad in Hartwell. Had good luck before it got hot back in May. Was catching a cast net full of threadfins then. Ever since it has gotten hot I have had a tough time of catching any. Been catching a few gizzard shad though. Last night (the 18th), I went out and tried to catch some under lights. A bunch of bait fish was under them but they were to small to catch in the net. I am using a 5 ft radius cast net. Last night I was in about 18 ft of water. Had been catching them in 2-7 ft of water. Tried in 3 ft of water last night too. Caught one is all. The questions I have is Should I be using a bigger net with a faster sink rate in the deeper water? Also what kind of lights are the best to use? And what about these Sabiki rigs I have been hearing about? Do you think they might work? It gets so expensive to buy bait and would like to keep catching bait but it is getting tougher to do. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
