Fished kentucky lake hard the past few days catching well over 100 gills... many nice ones. Occasionally I'd get into some of these very aggressive fish in 2-3 ft. Best I can tell it's a skipjack shad. Never saw them when I lived in texas. Your thoughts?
I don't live for the thump, but I sure do like it.
I buy "crappie minnows" and all my local shops sell is the shiner minnows. If I have some left after a trip of "catching fish out of lakes to stick my tanks" then I dump them in the tank when I'm throwing my stocker fish in. If I buy a pound of XL shiner minnows then there's usually only 9-12 minnows in it as they are quite large like the one you posted. I usually only buy the larges during the shiner spawn and throw a pound or 2 in each tank just to help up bait count.
