About when does the shad spawn happen in our area? Like month and/or surface temp. Also, how can you tell when it starts or is happening. As always- thank you!!

I'm not from the area so I can't give you a time or water temp but I will tell you that most of the time you can see the shad spawning very early or very late (low light conditions before or after the sun is up). If there are dock pilings, cedar trees, or anything that runs from the bottom of the lake and breaks the surface, those are great places to look. Hope that helps a bit.

Well I caught a lot last year during the shad spawn around May/June, but I'm not sure exactly when it started.
