LAKE MEAD — Live shad have been the ticket for catching striped bass and the occasional catfish. Shad can be found in the Vegas Wash area as well as along the shoreline in the Hemingway area. Though anglers are getting bites from 1- to 3-pound stripers, the action has been hit-and-miss. The areas around 33 Hole and Boxcar Cove have been producing fish. Night fishing under a light can increase the odds of attracting fish.
