i put about 50 gizzard shad in my pond about 4 years ago and forgot about them. the next summer i was playing with a new net and hauled in a ton of 5-6" shad. this is my shad source in hot summer months. every spring and summer i see 3-4 schools of hatchlings on the surface. the only problem i have had is trying to get all of the catfish out of my shad pond. when i catch them, their bellies are lined with silver scales! by the way, i have not caught the first yellowtail out of my pond; i have put several hundred in over the years.
