Wheeler Lake near Rogersville, Alabama
In the shallow flats, they are running shad up on the gravel bars. Topwater fishing is really good with a Spook Jr. and a Yum Houdini Shad in turtle color. When they move out a little deeper as the sun gets up, I’m catching them on a No. 7 or No. 8 Fat Free Shad.
