1. snagged this sob by accident. went ahead and tossed it back for the guppies. what is it a xxxl minnow? I was gonna take off the crankbait and start cranking ...more the minnow. probably would have landed a keeper but too many people were already giving me the evil eye because it was my first cast and they looked liked they'd been skunked all day.

    1 lb. 12 in. ?? with a crankbait

      who eats the big SOB? I'd need a bad ass hook and line to toss his out 20 yards..I don't think my ultra light gear would have handled that very well.

      one time I was at lake Ray Hubbard and they seemed to have been skinnier and longer, not so wide. different type of shad ?

      That is a shad, makes great cut bait for some big channel cats.

      Lol, yea, probably not much of an eating type fish. I caught one close in size on a roadrunner jig while crappie fishing a few years ago.

      I see the response now. a shad! damn should have cut its head off and went cat fishing. I must've thrown into a school of fish and I catch a shad of all things.

      Best bait ever for giant freshwater striper if you can keep them lively long enough to fish with them!!
    13. T Sen 0
      gotta love a giant gizzard shad! too bad they're not so easy to find that size when you want to go fishing for striped bass, or blue cats.
