Do you live near a river that has a catchable shad population. I know the Warrior has an abundance of shad the last few times I have been it has been covered up. We usually go to the Warrior to catch our shad to fish smith. Its a little more work but shad are expensive. We have even loaded the boat with shad before leaving the tennessee river and drove all the way back and fished the next moring at Smith.
If all else fails just try some bream they are nearly as good but one tip on the bream. Dont send them jetting down to 30 feet deep just freespooling it will kill them dead as a hammer. ease them down slowly letting their body get used to the temp.
