Bait size - 12/28/20 03:23 AM
I have some questions about bait size for big blues. We hear “big baits for big fish” and I get it. At least big baits will keep way the small fish. It seems like in the winter, like now, we can only catch small Shad around 3-5”. We catch tons of these this size, so it makes me think, the big fish have to be feeding on this size as well since obviously they’re so plentiful. We’ll usually catch one or two big Shad 10”+, but that’s it. Thoughts? Just use the small ones? Or keep throwing the net until we gather enough large ones? If we are to use smaller Shad, is it helpful to hook a couple on at a time?
