    I trotlined for years using cut shad for bait. I preferred to cut up the larger shad, rather than using the smaller ones whole, because the smaller ones just didn't hold up. I ran my lines every 24 hours.

    I will be using cut shad for the first time on my trotlines in about three weeks. I will let you know how I do. I've had very good luck with crawdads, night crawlers and goldfish over the years.
