    i fished texoma last year at this time. we caught a lot of blues, not to many channel cats. we caught most fish on shad, but on the days we did not get shad we used hot dogs and did ok. we cut the weiners into about 4 pieces each and they caught fish ok. when we had shad we also got a lot of stripers.

    cheap hot dogs is what we used. i just got some secret 7 last week. i have not had a chance to try it yet. i would have never believed the hot dogs until i had to use them or had no bait.

    We usually find shad in the lebanon pool and rock creek areas. bridgevies is usually a good spot for shad also. if you have a seine there are plenty of ghost minnows in this lake and they are awesome bait for just about anything. we catch them in the shallows where there is real light moss on the bottom.
