    Maurice,

    Where at on the TN river do you mainly fish ... towards Guntersville or over towards Pickwick, do you have a boat or do you mainly bank fish? Shad are plentiful on the TN as well as skipjack.

    Go below guntersville dam on the arab side...theres a wall down there people fish off of and you can get all the shad you want at the bottom of the wall there in the current....good luck...

    should be fairly easy to catch this time of year, just find a water discharge and cast the net a couple of times
