    Hi all...long time no fishing..

    I am heading out tomorrow for the first time in a while and am wondering if there is any bait to be found. I have a throw net and a 50 foot gill net. Anyone having luck with the shad in deep bottom?

    Thanks in advance for the help.

    Chris.

    A guy pulled out on a boat when I got there came back in 10 minutes will a full tub of gizzard shad. Gave one to the guy I was fishing with on the little pier....10 minutes later the guy pulled a 35+ pounder out.... Yeah he took it home to eat:confused2: and yeah....I got skunked on my birthday....

    It's where the boats let in, you can only fish there Monday - Friday. Weekends and holidays are off limits. I guess its really a dock, not a pier.
    good luck on the fishing
