Some years we catch white bass in the lake again before cats on the bulkhead and it’s sometimes the other way.
Either way April 15th on the south end is a good starting date.

It makes easy fishing for those of us without boats.
Thanks! Richland chambers has a ton of lake houses and retaining walls. Besides date, any other conditions to monitor? Assuming shad and normal baits are still effective?

You will see the shad thick on the bulkheads at first light. Cast a net close and you will get all the shad you need. Fish early, when the shad are on the bulkhead. They don't stay there for very long, maybe a couple hours first thing in the morning. When the shad leave the fishing gets slow.

In the past 2 years we have some pretty good action off our pier in walden, two years ago it as easter weekend and then last year was last week of March. Heading out for spring break and hoping for some pier action

They were not many around our bulk head this past week. Did catch several nice 3-4 pounders which we cooked up last night....
