For what Its worth.I have been observing schools of shad and I cant say for sure if they are yellow tails or gizzard shad since I dont use them,but early in the morning before sun up they have been down on the sand bar in shallow water(1 to 3 feet) getting busted up on by bigger shad and an ocassional bass .I even caught one spot that had a mouth full of them and they had a black spot on their back tail section.This was as late as 8 days ago so I dont know if they are still there or not.The sand bar is located just below the launch on the Arab side down on either side of the rock pile you can see during low water.There are snags/stump and rocks there so beware of that should you try it .
