shad are a bait fish, so you can use a cast net to catch them in KS. They seem to like light, so get a spot light or a big flashlight, shine it in the water at night leave it alone for a while, if the shad are schooling when you check, you should be able to use a cast net and catch em. Cast nets sell for $15 or less at Wal-Mart. Huh I just checked their website and can't find them, but I got my net from Wal-Mart.
