Muskie anglers typically don’t use shad as bait, but if you can get some big live shad as bait, you can catch plenty of muskie with them. Most anglers use artificial lures that imitate shad to help put more fish in the boat. There are several different companies that make some great shad-imitation crankbaits, swimbaits, soft plastics and spinnerbaits.
