I learned pretty quick dead sticking wasn't my thing. I was the one on the front of the boat casting for most of the day. The regular size split-tail flukes on a smaller jig head drug across the bottom was how I caught all mine. When Roger was cleaning our fish, we noticed all the shad they had eaten were pretty small which explained why the smaller flukes did the trick.
And here is Andrew with the day's biggest catch. Nice fish that we threw back.
