    Just wondering if anyone can tell me how easy shad are to get and where some good spots to get them are. I've never been there and am heading that way in the next couple of days.

    I never had a problem getting shad there..go down to the bridge on 15 below the boat ramp..there is a shallow shelf just below the bridge..or go to the mouth of silver creek..but I fish above the boat ramp....

    Thanks Slick. I take it that the fish are biting pretty well up there.

    Usually any of the creek mouths or field drains will be holding good shad.
