    I looked a few years ago and no one in Ohio sell Gizzard shad or threadfin shad. Best bet is to castnet them and bring them home quickly but now the water is much too warm for transporting them. A lot of research should be done before stocking any body of water with them, they are a real problem once established in a pod, Most places do not recommend stocking unless you have over 10 acres and 25 acres of water is preferred.

    I cant find the website right now but there was a place in the carolinas that sold them. A friend of mine was looking into buying them. The guy told him he would ship them to him in WV but would not promise him they would live through the trip. He said the shad are pretty fragile when shipping them. I'll give my buddy a holler and see if he remembers the name of the place.
