I don't have trouble finding shad on Truman lake when it's just about sunset and the wind is calm - they materialize from just about everywhere. Any idiot can find them in those conditions. And I understand that the wind will blow the plankton up against the downwind shore, and that's where the shad "should" be. But things don't always work out like they should. So here's a scenario: It's mid-afternoon, the wind is blowing out of the south at 10 to 15 mph - almost enough to make small whitecaps, the water is muddy or at best, a lot murkier than usual, and it's a sunny day. Within a short boat ride, I have long shallow flats, a small and fairly shallow tree-less cove, sheltered from the wind, and deep coves on both the downwind and upwind side of the lake, both with lots of standing timber. Where will I find the shad?
