Netting Shad in Open Water

Catching shad (menhaden) in open water is not easy with a castnet. This video teaches secrets the pros hide from us.

This killer video from Mike Smedley on YouTube shows us how to run a boat fast onto open water shad and actually fill a castnet with the critically important baits. These are striper pros, but the concept would work just as well here for the best Tarpon (and other species) bait. Open water capture is not easy but Mike shows how it's done.
