    BO dead shad

    Is anyone finding any winter kill shad still. ...was heading that way and was needing some bait.

    Saw a few at Pawnee. About 3-5 inches. Not a whole lot there, but enough for the amount of luck we had. Found them in the Marina.

        You could sink a boat w em at BO. Remember 100 in possession. Technically I believe its illegal to grab em w your hand.. Only legal method is w a dip net..I spent 4 hours yesterday vaccum sealing what we picked up in 30 mins.

                Not to open a can of worms because I vaguely remember hearing this, but who is it illegal to grab them by hand?

                  Technically I don't believe so.. That would be hand fishing.

                I have a hard time believing ANY competent CO would site someone for picking up dead, winter killed shad with their hands... Now if they were making sure you had a fishing permit that's another thing...
                When you have the option, please buy American made. If it does not save your job, it might save mine.

                  I wouldn't lay money on it. Depends on which side of the bed he got up on or how much the ol' lady's been rippin' his rear end the last few days.

                  Also could depend on how bad they have wanted to bust you over the years... I hope I have my permit on me... Exact quote" That would be nice if you didn't. I could go back and brag I busted you"

                Good thing i've got short arms and too afraid to get my hand wet and cold so i just use a long handle dip net. At B.O. we can scoop up a bunch with one scoop and pick the best of them. Anyone here toss them in salt and cure them before packaging them up for next season?

                  Nope.. This is the 1st year I have picked them up. I prob won't even use them unless I get someone in my boat that wants channel cats. Pretty worthless for much else

                    When I’ve got a couple people in the boat and I’m dragging 6 rods, I will probably throw a piece on just to confirm what I already know, that fresh is better.

                  If you use your minnow bucket dip net then yes, it would take forever. I think he means more of the larger, legal dip nets specified in the NGPC fishing manual.

                  I think even the bucket dip net is illegal due to the holes being too small!

                    I've ran into a couple with that attitude & personality over the years.
