    I have many people net shad and cut off the sides or head and throw the rest back in the lake. I only have one question, why? If you cut the head off and flay out the sides, then take out the guts and keep the back bone for when you run out of sides you have enough bait for 2 or mabye three rods if you strech it. Just don't waste the best bait. jim

    i agree. sometimes people throw out the best bait because they have more shad than they'll ever need

    All the cats I have been catching lately are on shad guts... they just won't bite any other part of the shad for me.
