    when netting shad i like to throw them directly on ice and then freeze them. I know that is probably not as good as fresh shad but it sure is nice to just grab a bag from the freezer and go. anybody have any opinions on this. is that not the thing to do?

    Not as good as fresh but comes a close second. As long as they are fresh when frozen you are good to go. Use a vacuum sealer if possible.

    I have had real good luck with vacuum sealing them. I wrap mine first and then I vacuum seal them. Just make sure once you thaw them to use them or they become really soft.

    Frozen works when shad "hide", but, on days I can't get bait easily, I don't usually catch much.
