    I've been having good luck with both creek chubs and shad up my way. Shad are around 8-10 inches and caught from the shore. Only caught one small channel Sunday night. Hopefully Thursday will show some mercy and give up a few.

    matt, you can't go wrong with shad, shiners, and my fav. at times creek chubs. flatties are starting to bite now. i would suggest looking for shallow logjams, or areas around rocks. the baitfish are plentyful in fairly shallow areas now, providing there is structure. if they don't bite right away, stay put they are around, but a little slow yet. goodluck
