The main lake deep bite locations have become overloaded with shad and I can not find active fish. I assume they only need to travel a few feet and eat all they need in a few minutes. With the warm temps and calm conditions this morning, I decided to spend time scouting both main lake and creeks. I was able to find active fish in a creek. I did not find any big balls of shad in the creek , but there were small pods of shad from the mouth to the back. I caught fish on a ice jig, jerkbait, 4" grub, kastmaster casting spoon, and a under-spin with 3" swimbait. I only had 4 keepers, but that was my fault. I could not figure out the best bait/presentation. I am sure an a-rig would work. There is also a crankbait bite at least on the main lake, but I think you would have to run and gun and just hit the premium locations vs going down a bank. There are two LM pictures, one caught this morning feeding on shad and one caught yesterday on a crankbait with a crawdad in his throat. Notice the difference in girth, the shad eater has a full stomach.
