When you freeze shad, how many do yo utake with you on a typical trip?
If I have some frozen in bags, I take one bag and keep them on ice to keep them frozen, and I dont thaw them unless I am not able to catch any. If I can catch some shad, I use the fresh one and put the frozen ones back in the freezer when I get home. I only take the frozen shad to the lake to use as a back up if I'm not able to catch any. That way you will always have shad through the winter. There will be days that you cant find them, but you still need bait.
