Does anyone having any success on keeping shad alive for more than an hour or two when you don't have a live well. After netting a few hundred I usually partially dry the shad in the Arizona sun, on both sides, and then freeze them. Works sometimes better than others. Often get mushy and don't last very long. I may not dry them enough. Anyone using a special drying technique? I have heard that dusting the shad with borax before drying in the sun works but I have not tried the process.
