Anyone know where to get fresh bait in the DFW area?

Such as cut bait, or "refrigerated" shad, or such like?

What part of the DFW are you interested? You can always go to Fiesta for Buffalo or an Asian market for just about anything else, including fresh gizzard shad.

Any store that sells fresh fish is your bait store
Cats eat fresh fish,type and origin doesnt matter.

Rules get a little foggy on certain types of fish though. Anything Texas deems as a game fish could get you in trouble if you use it as bait. But otherwise yes, that's very true.

That all being said. Summer is the easiest time to catch bait. Just about every boat ramp at any time of day is pretty likely to have shad on it. I went to a spot I hadn't been to in 2 years the other day. One throw on a boat ramp netted me 20+ 6" shad.

Game Wardens around here just say keep your receipt for the extremely rare (paranoid)chance they bother asking you what bait you are using(never).

Summer isn't the time to be worried about bait. Fresh is best and the freshest is still wiggling when you cut em. I keep my bait fresh by leaving it in the lake until I'm ready to fish.

Yup! That's exactly what I do. I love bluegill fishing anyway. I usually fillet my bluegill and pack them in pickling salt.
