yeah my uncle says they catch a butt ,load of shad at the falls and then take some shad and cast them for sturgeon in the same spot :lol: sure you will do fine from the ban. seems liek theres already a decent amount of them swimming around. uncle said jigs should kill em'
There is no limit on shad. They are pretty boney, so if you don't want to mess with the bones just can them. And yes they are really good eating. Best method I have found for fishing for them is a jig with a single large splitshot. Small yellow or chatreuse jigs or a jighead with a small plastic grub(yellow with glitter is good).
