I second that motion!

ok, here is an example of what to be looking for, but you will notice in this pic  there is a whole wad of fish 30 to 40 ft. suspended above the shad.  post front and cloudy days scatter the bait, and many of the bass will just roam quite a bit above the top of the shad schools.

on the left side of the screen, you will see the hillside that i just came off of and the shad right next to it.  the best scenario is finding the big shad schools pinned against the side of the hill.  if you notice there is a tree visible on the side of the hill.  the better bass will get right around those trees and  pick off the shad when the smaller bass herd them over to the side of the hill.  you can and will catch some bass on the other side of the shad, but they will normally be smaller ones.  bigger bass are lazy and let the youngsters do the work.

got out this morning to shoot some video for NuTech, but the front had the shad all busted up.  but, did manage to catch a few from off the bottom 50 ft. deep.  caught them on both the swimmer and spoon.  maybe they will be gathered back up tomorrow.
