    What part of the Upstate? On hartwell you can find them at Lake Hartwell fishing and Marine and at the Bait Shop. Both are on Hwy 24 by the lake. Good luck!

    The Bait Shop has gizzard shad sometimes. They go pretty fast there. Have seen them carry threadfins at times too.

    I bought some once in Union from SC Backwoods.

    At this time of year, can you still use a castng net to catch shad and baitfish? I've never used them much for bait but from reading here it seems that's what brings in the big ones.
