Elite Series pro Randall Tharp proves with several fish catches, that spinnerbaits are a top lure during the shad spawn. We visit Alabama's famed Lake Guntersville in early May, where Randall focuses his efforts on grasslines on the back sides of the main river channel. It's all about finding schools of spawning shad and getting them to follow and hit the blades of your spinnerbait. When this happens, hang on for a flurry of action. Randall delves into how to work blades for the most bites, modifying spinnerbaits, and using your spinnerbait to read the characteristics of the best grass. He connects with a few big 'uns toward the end of the video, so make sure to stick around for the teaching points and all the action.
