    If it is a gizzard shad, first run the hook thru the gizzard and then hook the guts around that. That is one mean bait, even bass and stripers go for it!

    As the name implies the gizzard shad have a gizzard which the gut is attached to..I run the hook through the gizzard then wrap the gut back around the hook .I run the gut through a couple of time's with the hook .The gizzard is so tuff that fish can't get it off the hook .when you reel in after they have pecked all the bait off [the gut] you will have a red round gizzard left.

    I have noticed that when I use just the guts I will hook alot of eaters, but every now and then I will get into a ggod one.

    I use a single hook with a sliding treble hook. Put gizzard on single barb and spongy gut pack up on treble. Its best used semi frozen and when water is running hard.
