    My dad bought from wally world a bag of baby redbelly shad. The package say no need to refridgerate just leave bag open for a few days and they will get better.
    I was wondering had anybody ever used this bait? If so how did it go? Also I am thinking of throwing one out into the ohio river does this sound about the best place to use this typ of bait?

    That's pretty good, apparently those baby shad don't work. I geuss I'll have to let the old man know.
    guess you just can't snap your finger and make live shad appear.

    but wally-world can supply you with all the shad that you need. Buy the cheap cast net that they sell. I recently bought one and practiced with it in the backyard per the instructions that came with it. But the best instructions i've found have been on youtube. When i go fishing i just stop by the boat ramps and get out the bucket and cast net and in about ten minuts have 20 or so shad. I think the hardest part is probably finding the fish you want to use for bait.

    we usually catch a ton of shad at sun up off of the boat ramp. when we fish at night you can usually get under a light and net a few.
