I hope you can answer a guestion. We are a group in Mohawk Bay Park on Bay of Quinte. Last season, for the first time we saw massive baitballs in August. We saw them from Glennora to Big Bay in the Shannonville area. We disagree on the makeup of the baitballs. Do you think it is shad?……and on a personal note, where the heck can a guy still buy shad taps…….I really enjoy uour posts.

Tough to say what the baitfish you marked were. They could be immature Gizzard Shad, shiners, or other baitfish. Tough to know unless you hooked one.

With regards to purchasing Shad Raps, best to contact Normark Canada,  in Oshawa that distribute them. They should be able to tell you where to find them.

Make sure to check the fishing videos on our Italo Labignan YouTube channel and if you have any questions just email them to me at Ask Italo throughout our www.canadian-sportfishing.com website.
