Shad Man says BUY ONE TODAY!!

This bait tank is HIGHLY recommended for all levels of live bait fishermen. Makes a great transport tank for the back of the truck to bring bait from the bait shop to your boat. Perfect for small boats or as a second bait tank for keeping a different type of bait or if you just want to save floor space. BUY ONE NOW! Link is in the description and posted in the comments.
---> Highly portable, rugged, and inexpensive.
---> Awesome for shad, herring, shiners, shrimp, suckers, bream, menhaden, pilchards, anchovies, sardines, ballyhoo etc...
---> Efficient. Runs off 2 amps for filtration and aeration.

FINAL LETTER FROM THE CHEF

Tomorrow will come and go and a chapter will close. Seven years came and went in a blink and we've all made some great memories. Folks from every walk of life have stopped by and shared their stories and added some flavor to this 'Soup. We came with a vision and accomplished, maybe even exceeded by many standards, what we set out to do.

We have answered calls, emails and messages about everything from why my shad died to how much weight should I use. Every customer was welcomed and treated fairly from the one cup of worms kid to the guy who came in and bought 10 rods and reels and one of everything else.

Up before dawn and there for 12+ hours, through blistering 105 degree heat to 15 inches of debilitating snow, we kept the pumps running, the fittings tight, the filters clean, and we tirelessly and enthusiastically peddled our lowly shad to all comers. We've had live shad for 365 days a year going on 7 years.

I want to thank everybody who helped build this amazing facility. Those who bled and toiled and worked in the heat. Thank you to the customers who showed support. Thank you to the haters who kept things interesting. Thanks to everyone for taking part in my vision of what a striper fishing store should be. As this chapter swiftly draws to an end, a new one shall come to light! Look for our shad to come to a lake near you.

As always - SOUP ON!

Yours truly,

Shawn The CHEF McNew

Need HELP from the shad community!

Can everybody call or go by Lees Grocery and the Sunoco on Red Top to encourage them to let me set them up with a tank and supply them with fresh frisky shad?

Also looking at Tommy Ts in Rome and a couple possibilities on West Point.

Every little bit helps!

Finally set up my live well Only issue is I lost the 4 anchor screws Anybody know the size of the screw hole ????????????
So here I am scratching my head after opening my monthly hat sauce order.
I've come a few times and found the store closed, what are the business hours and days ?
5 days to go until our next event on Tim's Ford Lake Sat April 13th. This is a non-points live weigh-in (no dead fish penalty) with $2,000 guaranteed for 1st place provided by Holiday Landing. The Bluegill Grill at Holiday Landing is also providing dinner Friday evening and coffee and biscuits Sat morning. This will be a great event before summer kicks in. Tim's Ford is known for quality fish Get registered by Friday the 12th at www.americanstripedbass.com/register
Is there anyway to get a list of where we can still get your bait at? Thanks
The bite on Allatoona is still good and at times stellar! While it can be hit and miss, the fish are schooled up nicely starting around Clear Creek and Stamp Creek and downstream to the Dam, Red Top/Bethany and Iron Hill. Get to know your creek channels and countours off the various points. These structure contours are better evidenced while the water is low and such study will help you better understand the breaks the fish relate to come Spring and Summer, even if you do not have a fish finder/sonar. A good sonar is highly recommended. The bait: these fish are feasting on shad - the predominant baitfish here in Alatoona. This past week they are eating big and small (remember-Elephants eat peanuts), and out of 5 excursions this week alone, the majority of the fish have come off of Threads and Medium Gizzards. While the downlines have not been as productive as the flatlines (whether free or on side-planers), it is worth keeping one or two down. Also casting Umbrella rigs and spoons will produce. Seeing some fisherman trolling plugs and umbrellas, too. I can only attest to what has been producing for our recent outings. We are fortunate enough to have a great outlet for live bait and needed terminal tackle and lures at Striper Soup, so make a visit soon. There are many a qualified Guide for this lake that can put you onto a nice Winter Striper and Hybrid. Hiring of said Guide could provide you years of experience packed into 4-5 hours of fishing-something that you can take with you on your own excursions going forward. Be safe out there and good luck!
Is it better to fish Fort Loudon dam during the week or weekend?
Looking for minnows, shad, any type of bait fish, any size... as long as they move and I can put them on a hook. I'm trying to make my last 2018 run and not get skunked. 🤔
It's all good here! Thanks for the inspiration!
Road trip
Be aware of this and stay vigilant. Tell your congressmen to support legislation to help eradicate these fish. It could be the end of everything we have in terms of catching and fishing with our own bait how and where we want. Educate yourselves and anybody you can on what they look like and how to avoid moving them from lake to lake. #shadman #waroncarp
Purchase striper soup bait tank 26 gallon from Shawn paid $400 will take $300 frim. Used once please call Charlie @ 931-787-6245if interested.
