Fishing on Lewisville today and saw a weird fish finning under the 380 bridge so my buddy kept trying to catch it until he accidentally snagged it. I've never seen a shad this big. [Linked Image]

That is a big one, but they can get bigger. MDNR states, “Gizzard shad are commonly found in the 8-14 inch range but may reach lengths of up to 18 inches or more.”

The big chill has hurt some of the shad populations with a few fish kills.
