Gizzard Shad



Perch, carp, and buffalo are also good...

Hands down, it's cut infant Mediterranean Monk Seal, marinated for 2 weeks in a 50/50 solution of White Rhino Tears and Snow Owl blood.

If you're fresh out of the above, gizzard shad is a close second.

Depends on the day of the week(moon phase), time of year, water temperature, night temperature, running water or still, shad spawn, catfish spawn, and above all where you place the bait is somewhat more important than what bait you are using. If you are not fishing where the fish are, nothing works not even dynamite

I am pretty sure the spotted owl and the snow owl are the same thing. When I have as in Aggieland I had a Business Statistics professor who had a plush spotted owl that he swore was his teaching assistant. So I learned a lot about spotted owls...just not too much about statistics.

The cast net is your best option. Some bait stores sell frozen shad, but you will not be as successful. Cut Monk Seal, marinated in White Rhino Tears and Owl blood would be your next logical choice.

Castnets pay for themselves in a few trips.

I watched a few youtube videos on throwing a cast net, practiced for 10 minutes in the driveway and the next time on the water I had plenty of bait!!!

Not as good but will work, along with carp, buffalo etc.

Would strongly suggest, if you plan to keep chasing blues, invest in a quality net and buy a spare while you're at it. Watch where you throw it.

Never really hunted for blues, found a bunch the other day stacked up waiting for the spawn, so this weekend I was gonna go try and catch a few. there anyone sells giant gizzard shad like that? Just might have to go buy a cast net and give it a shot.
