I have always found colour didn't make much difference as long as it is in front of them for the majority of the time. These fish eat shrimp and the like while in the ocean so they are familar.. it would go with that they are most familiar with the pinks and reds but other colours like Chartreuse work well. I have used both spinning and fly gear for these fish and they are awesome on both. Where I am from in NS they come up the Annapolis River and it is pretty much the entire month of May you can dedicate to fishing shad if you wished. Since I have moved up to Moncton I have heard that there are shad in the area but not knowing it I need a little better description to find my way around.
