When setting a successful shad spread along the Delaware River, Chris Gatley from PENN said he prefers running flutter spoons behind hookless rattling baits like the Berkley Flicker Shad (7 feet or less) or Flicker Minnow (8- to 10-foot range). “I’ve learned the more rattling baits that I can get out in my spread, the more fish we’re catching,” Gatley said.
