In the late-spring and early summer months when the water temperatures reach the 70-degree mark, shad will spawn on hard surfaces such as riprap. The spawning activity only lasts for the first hour or two of daylight, so it’s important to have your strategy honed-in so you can capitalize on this very small but productive window of opportunity. FLW Tour pro Jay Yelas shares some awesome knowledge in this video including spinnerbait selection, retrieves and strategy. Once your water temperatures start flirting with 70 degrees, make sure you give this a try on your home waters.
