Tie a shad trace with MYDO Fishing Lures
Tie a shad trace with MYDO Fishing Lures: Long gone are the days of loading a big old surf stick onto the bakkie, tying up a top-bung trace and heading to the beach to catch shad for breakfast.
Modern-day Shad Fishing
Nowadays, you need only a bass rod or slightly bigger. Ultra-light is what they call it. The 10, 20 or even 30lb braid is beautiful to fish with. The little light-weight two-piece rod at about 6 or 8 ft is easy for anyone to use.
Casts right to the backline! With line left…
Unless you hook one this big! (at left)
You can check out suitable modern-day shad rigs right here on this website.
You gonna need a little bit of leader and some leader-tying skills. There is a very simple leader system for you to try at the LINK.
The MYDO Silver Bullet Shad Trace
Catches everything. Well, a well-presented and fished fillet bait will catch anything and everything. And in this very light disguise, light wire and totally buried hooks…the MYDO Silver Bullet pulls together a highly effective rig for fishing in the surf zone or just behind it.
In this form, it is also a Queen Mackerel killer. And many large King Mackerel have fallen for the fillet. Drape a couta duster over the front of the MYDO Silver Bullet Baitswimmer for a perfect little sailfish bait. Use nylon for the leader if sailfish are what you are after.
Please pop on over to https://thesardine.co.za/mydo to get an order in. There is a shad pack available too. This features 4 shad traces from the quarter ounce, the eighth, a half and a one-ounce version. Plus a wire-rigged dropshot for in case your bait runs out.
You can also buy them for R50 each.
