    Ive never been anywhere near your area, but almost all lakes, atleast sizeable ones will have some species of shad in it. They are the main food source for striper, sandbass, and bluecatfish.

    It will surely have some sort of shad. If it's a good fishery then shad almost have to be present. They could be gizzard, hickory, mooneye, goldeye, or some other kind but there are some in there somewhere!
