    Welcome to the BOC, brother. I have always had luck in the back of shallow wind blown coves. OR where ever there is fresh water coming in, like after a rain. Besides that watch for the birds and boils!!

    Willy,

    First welcome to the BOC. Now as to your question, two other places I have seen schools of shad are just inside the mouths of creeks with flow coming out into the river. Of course, I have not had luck actually catching any of them. My throw net skills are exactly zero right now!
