    i went to the lavon dam last wensday with my fishing camp, i caught a 30ib carp while fishing for shad, caught him on 4ib test, it was a heck of a fishgt, no cats but lots of shad and saw alot of gar... overall thought it was a good trip!

    Bet that was lots of fun on light tackle. What are you considering shad? Never heard of catching them on rod and reel since they eat algae and plankton?
