As a kid growing up in Arab, I spent much time on the Warrenton causeway along Hwy. 69 and remember catching lots of bream during this time of the year. The fish will bed up and down those rocky rip-rap shores. As for the ultimate adventure, as teenagers we used to wade out into "The Cowpasture" down past Beach Creek. Not sure who owned the land, but I suspect it was leased from TVA for pasture/cattle. The road going in was rough and full of DEEP ruts. I think it may be a few weeks early yet for that because the water is still too cool (for me) to wade and I don't ever remember being cold. Now that I think about it, we always caught bluegill and you asked about shellcrackers. Much of the eastern shoreline is public access. There is a municipal pumphouse that offers access down Sunset Drive, but I bet it gets fished frequently.
