    I haven't been able to catch shad at the Wateree dam for a quite a while now, and was wondering if anyone knew where I can get some (to purchase or catch myself) in the area? I don't have a boat so hunting them down is not an option. Back in April and May it was fool proof, now not so much. Once it started getting hot they vanished. I would guess they headed back to the cooler waters of the lake (Marion), but don't know. This is my first year catfishing and all I can say is lesson learned. I read all the bad things about freezing, but frozen shad has to be better then no shad. So any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
