I caught a 13" shad on accident by snaging it a few days ago at a small river. So i froze it, and a couple minutes ago, sliced it up into about 8 good sized cut baits. Have you ever fished previously frozen shad? If so please share your success. Thanks. I figured i'd keep them frozen (cooler) until i casted one in the lake tommorow night, and let the fluids melt out in the water, instead of my tackle box.
