    Just wondering if you guys ever use shad thats been cut up and been sitting out for a few days in the heat simmering in its own juices. I had some sitting in the bed of my truck from last weekend and it sat in the bed of my truck till i used it this weekend, did pretty well with it on the eater channels.

    Never used old shad like that but when I was younger my buddy and I left some night crawlers out for 2 days in the summer and they were like sludge. Well, that's all we had so we stuck them on there and caught 2 10 pound channel cats. Right place, right time, old nasty bait, hungry catfish = success!


    I'm just not sure I could drive around a whole week with that smell in the back of my truck LOL!
