Sad are perhaps the Cinderella of deadbaits. We know anglers who have had some great catches on them, but they tend to be over-shadowed by other baits, like mackerel and herring, which is a shame because they have a lot going for them.
Quite herring-like in shape, scad have a tough skin that means they tend to hold up will to repeated casting. Scad have a silvery-sheen, but are a little less bright than herring.
Scad are also slightly more thick-set than herring, so they are quite a heavy bait, that cast really well, we use them a lot on float rigs as they stand up to being moved around and twitched back very well.
Our scad are carefully selected and measure between 7-8inches, making them ideal to use whole, or as half-baits for pike fishing. If you haven't tried them before, and are looking for an alternative to your normal baits then we recommend you give them a try.

Quite a large bait, we recommend using whole scad mounted on a Pike Pro size 4 twin-treble trace. Mount the upper treble in the tail-root of the fish and the lower treble in the flank.
Frozen and live bait is available to purchase in-store only. These are listed on our website for informational purposes and to allow our customers to see the live stock availability in store.
