I have used shad a few times and it has always produced for me but its really hard for me to get shad. I have a cast net and can throw it just fine but when ill get on the docks and i can see them jumping and ill throw directly where i see one jump and usually come up empty. Should i pull the cord quickly after goes in the water or wait a good bit. I've tried it all but w/no success. I dont have a boat so i can only throw from shore. Any tips on getting shad? And where are some good places near by to get shad? I live near charlestown(between jeffersonville and madison in clark county above louisville).
