If I kept them in the same bait tank do think they would fight or anything. Because I went bait fishn saturday (usually for blue gill) and all of a sudden I got 2 shad. i didnt think they where even in the lake. well 1 was bait that nite and the other went into the tank at home. Today I found it dead. And there are about 12 blue gill in the same tank. the scales where all gone on one side of the shad. Anyone here keep them in the same tank? thanks!
