    I Was Just Wanting To Know If Any One Still Uses Shad Gizzards Because I Haven't Heard Alot About Them. All I Know Is That One Of My Buddy's Buys A Jar Every Time He Goes Out And I Have Seen Him Catch A Couple Channel Cats That Were Over 25lbs.

    So Will Ya'll Tell Me What Ya'll Think About Them?

    I Like Live Or Fresh Cut Bait Myself.....

    Thanx For The Info Ahead Of Time.........

    Sshhhhhh.....Dont tell everybody about my secret bait. Just kidding. Everytime I catch a big shad in the cast net, Ill cut him up for bait and cut out the guts for bait too. I've caught numerous cats on shad guts...usually smaller sized ones though. Good eating sized ones.:big_smile: I can usually catch 2 or 3 on the same bait before I have to change.

    shad guts are an excellent channel cat bait.. shad gizzards are a different story though.. a gizzard is a heart like muscle in a bird. they swallow seed whole with rocks and the gizzard pulvarizes it. basically it chews for them. lol, i could'nt resist...
