The shad at cherry creek are out of control. Pulled up to a spot with some bait about 5ft thick with some bigger fish sitting under them. Dropped a couple jigs down to see if they wanted to play. As we let the boat drift the screen just kept getting more and more clouded, In 20fow the shad were showing from the bottom up to about 7ft under the surface. We ran into about 3 spots on the lake where this was a case. I did manage to foul hook about 15 of them that I will use as cut bait. They were all about 3.5in and about an inch wide. I hate this lake to death, But I will continue to fish it.
