    Hey guys where are the shad? Up until last week we had no trouble spotting a swirl and catching shad out of Rocky Fork Lake, all of a sudden they all dissapeared. We threw the nets the other night for like four hours and never caught didley. We were in the marina shallows and deeper water and never even marked any bait, All we caught was carp and a few bass, two or three single shad ,which were very small. Any clues as to where they have gone?

    May be a few days before the water warms up again,night time temps are going to be pretty low.

    I think they all figured out there was a Hilljack on the lake and gave up already.
