Thanks for all the inputs men! I have been checking around and found out the only place to buy shad is at Speegles near Trimble.

I bought a portable fish finder and it was going nuts off a friends dock about 3 miles up from the dam in the main channel. It was alarming at 10, 46 and 60ish feet. This was last Sat. You could see what I think was bait fish on the finder (shad) too. I bought some bass Minnow bait up in Huntsville to bring down to try since I did not know about speegles. The shiners/minnows were approx 2" long. Not a single strike, not even at 10 feet. I figured out this was not going to work! Forgive me you veterans :)
