I normally use live bluegill for my bait, but with the creeks being up so bad right now from the rain, I wasn't able to get any yesterday. I'm wanting to hit the river really bad this morning and have no bait! :sad2: I remember seeing packaged shad or shiners (not sure which it was) at Walmart on the shelves. Are these worth trying ? Anybody have any luck with these things? Thanks in advance.
