I've been catching shad fairly consistently at one location. It seems that the shad are attracted to the mouth of an over flow channel for water coming out from a soy bean field in to the Arkansas River. When I gut the shad their stomacks looks green almost like micrscopic algae. Does anybody have any ideas about what the normal diet of gizzard and/or threadfin consist of ?. Are they vegetarians? Maybe there are there smaller organism in the algae that i'm not seeing? Question #2: I read an article where the guy was talkin about finding the shad in a cove, an area of a lake where the wind had blown the shad. Why would the wind affect the location of shad. If the shad are underwater,as they usually are in Arkansas, how could the wind cause them to change location. It doesn't seem possible that the wind could have any affect more that 1 or two feet below the surface. Maybe the wind is blowing the food stuff and the shad are following? Any thoughts?
