This will wrap up the series of reports. Im now caught up. I'll do my best to post regularly for you guys! The shallow bite continues for us on Lake Guntersville. However there is definitely a shad spawn going on, and this past weekend I know of 30-60 fish days being had on the new True Bass Swimbaits color CITRON... 4.5 and 5.5. No lie. They're choking it. Throw it on the True Lock Swimbait head in 1/4 ounce and 1/2 ounce. The way to spot a shad spawn is when you see bait fish tailing your swimbaits, worms, or spinnerbaits in to the boat. ALSO they will be on the surface rubbing early in the morning. Sometimes they will do it in bright sunny, but mostly it will happen longer in the morning if it is cloudy.

I have days available this week if you want to get out there and sling a swimbait around at them! Should be able to start running multiple patterns around the lake. This is my favorite time of year, so lets go fishing!
