Live baiting shad in the boils of the dam and directly below. Bucktails with a grub. 3/4 to 1 ounce! When I live bait I use about 1/2 ounce of egg sinker and 16-24 inches of leader with 20-25lb test for the leader and reel. A good small but stout hook allows the bait to swim a little better. My favorite shad are threadfin but they are a lot harder to find than gizzards. I prefer smaller gizzards and will fish any size threadfin.
