 Post subject: stream tips needed.
PostPosted: Tue Nov 29, 2005 12:49 am 
there is a small stream near a buddy of mines house that we head out

to everyother weekend. the stream holds bass, crappie, bluegill, carp and

catfish,(very well populated stream with alot of habitat) On saturday, by

bro-in-law accidentally snagged a shad, so i used him for bait and got

picked up right away but the fish was able to get loose just about 10ft

away from the shoreline where we fished, it seemed like a good size bass.

My question is if anybody here

knows how to catch the shad for bait and if so,please let me know, any

tips or info will be appreciated. :D :D :D :D :D





FISH ON BABY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It may be a good idea for us to ask where you are at, as in California there are regulations that prohibit catching some forms of live bait using some methods.

BUT ........

If you were picked up like that you should probably either:

Throw Gulp plastic baits at them bass!

Use a small (1/4 oz) barrel weight and make a Carolina rig, where the weight is held in place between 2 and three feet from the hook, bait the Gulp bait on weedless style like any plastic worm.

OR ....... get a small live bait bucket and air pump, buy the live minnows at the tackle store (a couple dozen might give you hours of fun!) and use those.

Either way, check your regs before you start fishing, and be safe!

Then take pictures and report back here!! :P

maybe try a rapala SSR-5,

that's a shallow shad rap #5,

good walleye bait.

you could also try an F-3 or F-5 rapala as well.
cheers

What about using a minnow trap? A lot of lakes will allow you to use native species if allowed under fishing regs. Also Walmart sells packaged dead minnows for various freshwarter species. :)

It depends on what state you are in Calif. you cannot use a throw net but you can use a dip net. Also if f&g see you trying to snag shad on purpose not leagle minnow traps will not work for shad where are you fishing?

YNKSFN13, if you can see them you can net them I use a dip net with a 8ft. handel you can buy at turners not to expensive forgot what I paid for mine. They will die real fast but you ice them and roll them in salt when you get home then freez them it will keep them a little tougher. Are you fishing around Euclid ave I use to shoot at the archery club there but it has been awhile. Good luck the little suckers are fast.
