View Full Version : Shad Darts

05-31-2010, 03:07 PM
I just bought a couple of them to try to hookup on some shad later today. I was wondering what kind of set up to use with them? Just tie the dart to some line and cast, or is their more to it? And one more question how do you reel em in? Just cast then slow retrieve or what? Any info will help.

Thanks in Advance.

Certain color shad darts works the best. Depends on how fast the water is and how deep is it. Use a egg sinker with a swivel then have your leader at least 3 ft. On the AR, you can use a Żoz egg sinker and on the Sac I prefer 1oz. If your rod is 8'6+ then I would prefer 1Żoz on the Sac.
