    I went to crabtree creek today and caught these two shad with a 1/32 ounce white marabou jig. i caught them one after the other and had some more hits later but no more fish. i think i might go next weekend with some shad darts and try an`d get some more.

    shad size
    The one on the bottom is 2 bounds and the one on the top is a pound and a half. but they can get past 5 pounds.

    yeah there are different kinds. the ones that live in lakes are small and arent game fish. but the american and hickory shad swim up costal rivers and spawn in central north carolina, than swim back down to the ocean. they are very popular sportfish and can get big.
