I'd Like To Catch The Bass...

Recommended Posts

That could eat this gizzard shad.

Caught this while trout fishing in a lake that is stocked with trout in the winter. I wasn't able to get it certified by the Missouri Dept of Conservation until the next day, but it weighed in at 1.92 lbs on a certified scale. Assuming the submission is approved, it will be a new Missouri line and pole record for Gizzard Shad.

Those fish are exactly why stripers have been introduced throughout much of the country.

A 30 lb striper WILL eat that shad!

That is why there are giant catfish in Missouri .

 

...and congrats on a new record. I should be seeing your name in the Conservationist soon. 

 

I think I caught a record White Sucker out of the Salt river. I had no idea   and released it.

Little 10 pound flathead would suck that shad down no problem. I've had them eat bluegills the size of my hand and shad have to be much easier to get down I'd think.

 

 

I snag some monster shad each winter at the power plant lakes. Any idea how long it was? I had one that was 16 or 17 inches a few years ago on a jigging spoon.

I believe I saw your post about this on the Ozark Anglers forum.  That's pretty cool.

Congrats on that monster shad. The 10lber I caught today could probably choke it down.

Not even sure that KS keeps a record for gizzard shad? I know there's a record for goldeye so probably is one out there.
