    This may sound silly to most of you experienced fishermen and women but I'm having a tough time finding shad to catch with my cast net. I ran around aimlessly this past weekend looking for some shad to catch for bait. Is there something I should be looking for? My depth finder said that there were bait fish under the boat at 10 feet but I couldn't catch any. I live in southeast Texas and the weather is still warm here so I thought I would find them in the shallows but they weren't there. I would appreciate you sharing your instite and tactics.

    Thanks Richard, I'm relatively new here and didn't realize that there was a shad page. I'll run over there and I'll probably find an answer for my problem. Thanks again.
