I have had a hard time catching thread fin shad lately - I can catch all the huge Gizzard Shad I like ... but no thread fins ... I went Crappie fishing monday night , low and behold - I threw my cast net a couple of times and filled my net up with 3 or 4" threadfin shad ... I can keep them alive for an hour or two in my live well .. However after that I am toast .. It sure would be nice to go up friday night and catch bait and not have to worry about it on Sat.... Any suggestions ?
