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.
As conservationist it is our duty to educate our young!

i have caught my biggest fish on 11-13 inch skipjacks.
experienced hunters know its not just a bushy white tail, its a big middle finger.

nothing makes a fish bigger than almost being caught
