All week long in the evenings I have been trying to get out and get some shad for bait around the QC region of the mississippi.(when time allows) Not much luck. I tried throwing a cast net from different boat ramps in the day and at night. tried along the edge of a weed bed off the main channel, tried fishing for em with wax worms around a beaver lodge.... i only got 2 tuesday to show for my efforts. I kept them on ice all week and used them this morning on the miss. i got strikes on all baited rods. caught one about 5 #. I tried a live bluegill and got one little hit., but he didnt live too long.. 2 little shad dont last long when thats all you brought out for bait! anyways, any help would be appreciated, why I'd even buy you a cold beverage on a hot day like today.
