Default Sabiki Rigs for Shad

Has anyone had any success catching shad on sabiki rigs? I marked plenty of bait this weekend and tried a sabiki without the slightest nibble. Hook sizes were 12s. I've heard some say that small bare gold hooks are better and can be tipped with a piece of worm.

After an hour of throwing a cast net, I managed 3 Threadfins, but no Gizzards or Herring. I could see the larger baits flipping on the surface (and stripers busting them), so I know they were present. Frustrating.

I catch white perch on them regularly, and a few crappie, but never shad. Offshore I have caught many baitfish with them.
