I've caught stripers at both PK and Texoma on shiners. Don't think they are as good of a bait as shad but shiners are easier to keep alive.

I think when they're bitin they are easy to catch on a wide variety of stuff. In the dog days like we have now, not much seems to work. I trolled and cast the lures yesterday that normally work on PK and NADA. Went up a creek and caught some live shad and still could not buy a bite. I'm sure someone will say they limited out in 30 minutes, but this was the truth I got yesterday.

In my experience, shiners can work very well at certain times....even out fish shad.

Early spring time running shiners behind planer boards is the best for shiner fishing for me.

My brother in law and I, when we used to fish Texoma regularly, mostly during the winter, almost always used shiners and had very good results. I am talking about shiners in the 6-7 inch range, used to buy them at the Tackle Box. Don't know if that store is even still there, but we fished em same way as live shad, and they most definitely worked.

I have a pond full of big shiners. I'll have to give them a serious try.

I have always been told, rule of thumb is that the best live bait comes from where you are fishing. Shad is the prefered food for stripers, but when the are biteing they will feed on anything including shrimp and worms. I have caught them on Texoma on everything in my tackle box at one time or the other, but live shad, then cut shad, then what ever you can find that they will hit.

I used to always take some shiners , but mainly in case it was hard to find shad. But yes they will work but if I have shad Ive almost always had better luck on them. for stripers , but caught a lot big large mouths at Whitney on shiners fishing flats with cover.
