Shad are one of the most popular types of forage in many of the lakes throughout the country. There
are many types of shad and some are even big enough to catch, but the shad we are talking about on
this page are the types of shad that are bait fish for the game fish. Threadfin shad, like the one in the
picture above, and gizzard shad are two of the more popular types of shad used as forage. Shad are
typically stocked in lakes so game fish will have a healthy population of bait fish to snack on. Most game
fish will eat shad, but they especially loved by largemoutt bass and striped bass. There are many
crankbaits on the market that look like a shad and they are very effective baits for a variety of species.
