I don't know if anyone else has the problem of only being able to catch shad when it's dark, but we sure do. Do any of you guys ever catch shad in the daytime? I fish in a lake and a river, and hope I can get some advice on catching shad in the daytime in both of them. What kind of area's are they during the day? Do you throw a cast net on them? Seems in the lake they are very deep in the daytime and about impossible to catch, but I don't know about in the river. All input is greatly appreciated.
