that's about all we have on Kaw lake ... almost all the smaller shad died out when the lake froze over the second time this winter. Not seen any 20 inch ones though ... more like 10 to 12 inch which is very big gizzard shad

I caught an 18-3/4 inch long shad on a rattle trap at Calaveras lake in San Antonio. I wish I would have taken it to the office for weight and picture as im sure it was a record of some kind. It big the hook and was hooked in the mouth. Instead I threw it in the ice chest and used it for cut bait later in the day. frown
