    Where is the best place to find shad?


    no lock and dams around here so thats out!


    Boat ramps in heavy current a good place to find them?

    Im having a lot of trouble finding them while the water is low.....

    Try weed beds near the shore.

    gizzards are sort of loaners...they go into the coves in the evening and morning...typically they are at the surface..or just a little bit below

    we find threadfins deep and shallow...you will find them in coves but if you have a good fish finder you can locate them in open water or just outside of the coves....

    i just recently purchased a new lowrance unit....it shows me bait I never knew was there before....it is almost a must when catching bait you cant see..

    good luck
