Ive let a fluke sink through the school - nothing.
This fall i've caught on topwater and cranks but not near visible schools of shad.
What's up?
when you see a school of shad busting the surface, do you throw in the middle, Left, Right?
please give me something new to try
I know this is an old post, but I figured someone will come through reading... But here goes....it is not always bass hitting the shad. It is most likely perch or even crappie. And the best way i've found to work a school of bait that is being hit is with a Little George. Throw it past the school and let it sink. It will arc down and under the school. This is where you'll have your best luck. Plus the bigger, older, smarter fish hang low waiting for the injured baitfish to fall down towards the bottom anyway. They let the young, stupid ones do all the work then they reap the rewards.

Thanks for the great info, guys. One gentleman told me to go where the creeks come into the lakes and it would be good there since the water is getting colder.The only problem is there to far away to paddle to for me.

Thats true, our shad are already transitioning to the points and creeks, my favorite fishing time of year is almost here. Let the fall fishing bonanza begin.
