Just curious what's the biggest shad everyone has caught? I got these two at Lewisville, 15.5" long and 10.25" girth.

I sure wish I could get a few of those in a throw, those are some nice big shad, I've caught some like that before but it's been a while and it was one here and there

When I first got the net up I thought they were sandies. The next throw was a 40-50lb gar...my net suffered some major damage.

If a lake ever freezes over with thick ice, shad will freeze up near the top. These are always the biggest shad in the lake, and never the smaller ones. Strange, but true.

Last spring I was bowfishing for carp to cut up and bait with and shot a 14" shad. The head off of it yielded a 44 lb Blue the next morning.

19.5 ish inches, late last spring.
Fixed post wasn't, 22.5 the guy with me reminded me I measure it on the cooler tape and held it in the wrong spot the first, that number was stuck in my head.
Was still a really big shad.

When you get a good shad like that I like to give it a good beating before I filet it or cut it....gets the blood into the meat.
