    I catch skipjack on sandtoads in front of a couple of spillways relatively easily. As far as shad I have been unable to catch any, other than minnow size in the minnow sein. I purchased a cast net and hope to catch some larger shad to use. Ive never tried whole live shad before because I have been unable to catch them but from all ive read on this site they seem to be the bait of choice.
