How is the Shad hunt right now? Any areas that are holding bait consistently? I am sure they are deep.
Thanks for any info

welcome

Before and at daylight around boat slips (careful crappie condos are net eaters) is about the only shot I know shallow

If you are putting in around Sky Point Marina off highway 276, the "short bridge" to the north is usually productive.

I did catch one shad in my cove this afternoon, and a nice channel cat on a dock hook

I'll be looking for larger shad when I go Saturday. My taped net has 5/8" mesh and the small to medium shad swim right through it. PMs are appreciated!
