I know for a fact Bob Maindelle of holding the line guides service catches shad from Belton and often keeps them for a few days in his baittank. The key and law breaking action would be to use lake water and not tap water. But that’s a great point that how can a gw really tell between the clear lake water and the clear tap water? Do they take your word for it or do they test it?? If I used lake water from phantom there is no question if it is muddy water or tap water. I imagine Belton looks clear like tap water.
