I will be fishing Twok next weekend for 3 days. I could use any tips on where to get some big gizzard shad. All of my cast nets are 5/8" mesh and therefore are useless for catching threadfins. I plan on catching some locally before I go, but would like to be able to get some at Tawokoni if possible since I will be there for 3 days. Give me a good enough tip and I will catch some for you as well. I'll be staying at Shoestring farms if anyone feels like coming by and telling some fishing stories. PM's are welcome as always!

I am also curious as to how much clearance there is under the 2 mile bridge? I have a CC w/ a tall T-Top that would not make it under the bridge a month ago.

Nick your boat should clear the bridge but your going to have to squeeze under on the west side where there is a few elevated stringers. Mine cleared about two months ago when the wife and I went and the lake was around 2 feet over. Good luck out there dude. cheers

I have been throwing my net in my cove for the last three weeks just to see what is there. In 5 FOW, I have been catching a few large shad, but mostly 1.5 " shad. Went under 2 mile last week, but we were in a bass boat. Good luck next weekend

Good six inch shad was just out the cove at the state park two weeks ago. Twenty fow with a taped net. It wasn't thick but good enough. Threw five or six times.

I watched a man cast netting from a pontoon at the 751 bridge Sat. I could not tell the size but he was getting a few every cast.

Be careful when you throw at 751...you are likely spend the next 20 to 30 minutes picking out tiny catfish.

I hope to bring a mess of bream along in case shad is difficult. I'm trying to decide to ice them down or to bring the bait well and use some live bait.

Nobody is volunteering to give me 20 lbs of shad frown so I've got my bream traps soaking. I'll try to catch some shad and buffalo when I get there.

Loads of big shad near the dam in 40ish feet. Use a taped net. A few throws and you'll have all you want.

Thanks. I saw tons of threadfins there last month when I went, but didn't throw my net.

My bream traps yielded a gallon of very tiny bream. Just big enough that I can put 4-5 on my hook and entice an eater. I will attempt to catch some big bait in the am.
