Hickory shad will attack anything that's small and has a lot of glitter. A small bucktail (1/2 oz) with crystal flash hair or flashabou works very well. Small soft plastics (with freshwater jig heads) also work well in various colors.

You can spend entire days hooking up with these critters one after another until your arms fall off or you get bored. They don't call these "poor man's tarpon" for nuttin'.

As bait, they are on par with fresh bunker, maybe even better based on my limited experience.
