I found a spot today in really shallow water in the back of a cove that had a stack of shellcrackers on it. It was about the size of a dining room table and it was loaded. You could see them hovering in there. They were nice size ones and the lower 1/3 of the fish were solid black! I assume this is from spawning. I fished the bed and the surrounding area for about an hour and caught around 40. All were released back to do their business.
