Catch More Bass By Understanding Shad

Learning how and where shad survive the winter will help you catch more fish! Pete Anderson explains it like this: Both species (of shad) swim into shallow water in fall, staying there until the temperature turns too cold. Then, they retreat to the comfort of deep water, mostly in main creek and river channels, Goodfred said. Bass eat shad in deep water, but they often hold in adjacent shallow cover and structure, which typically is in diving range of suspending jerkbaits. Bass can remain shallow even after shad skedaddle, he said. Those will eat any shad that’s still around or a jerkbait that looks like one. Shad may never leave the shallows during a mild winter, he said. Click on link for more information!
