    Go to the old powerplant around the 72nd area and there should be plenty of shad along the bank. Talked to a guy yesterday and they said there are alot of lively shadd...

    Fishman Catch bait???

    They're starting to spawn in southern Ohio right, give it a week or so up there and you shouldn't have any trouble find them :) Just go to a lake you know has a good shad population, look for them spawning, and start throwing!
     
  4. They are spawning in central Ohio right now, I loaded up on them in 2 throws. Look for rock/stone banks on a 45 degree slope.
