Shad size question  (Read 647 times)

Curious as to what size shad to use (either cut or whole). I have been mixing it up a bit (based on what I have been able to catch). Always heard big bait = big fish. Not been having much luck on anything larger than about 4-5 inches (both cut and whole).
Usually run 4 lines and the smaller pieces seem to always get the hits. Now I have not caught anything real huge (16lb max).
Do you 30-50lb fish catching guys strictly use large bait? Or do you mix it up? Or is it just what ever you net?
I don't want to load all 4 with something and not catch anything, but really want some bigguns as well!

Have only caught 2 larger than teens on rod and reel (30.5 and 40.0)  Both caught on 9 inch gizzard shad heads drifting at a pretty good clip. 4 rods out both times with different size cut baits on the other 3, so bigger bait caught the bigger fish.
