I've been catching some shad and freezing what I don't use. I pat them dry and put them in the baggie. I do not see a whole lot of difference between the shad I've frozen and the frozen shad at the freezer at Cabelas, which comes from a company in Oklahoma. How much difference is there in my frozen shad and the store bought frozen shad?

You pay somebody else to catch your bait if it's store bought.

Not sure on the difference on the question your asking but fresh bait is the best. I always catch my shad fresh when I get on the water. I don't Freeze them anymore. That makes them soft and fly off the hook easier too when you cast.

Get you one of these. They are cheap and work good. It should help keep the shad in good shape while frozen. Bad1 mentioned vacuum sealing his to me the other day and reminded me I had one of these battery operated ones. I did some shad tonight in small bags, about 12 to 18 per bag, depending on size. I figure that way I won't waste as much thawing them and not being able to use them if the bite isn't good that day.

that was kind of where I was headed was what to do this winter when the shad are deeper than my ability to catch them.
