Threadfin Shad are small baitfish resident to many streams and lakes in the southeast United States. Threadfin can grow up to 8 inches but usually are in the 3-6 inch range. They are an excellent bait fish for largemouth bass ponds or lakes simply because they swim in schools (dozens or more together). Threadfin shad feed on plankton usually late in the day. They spawn in spring, early summer and in the fall. Female shad lay anywhere from 2000 to 20,000 eggs each. Threadfin shad are available from Southern States beginning in the spring through early fall.
