Default Understanding Shad

I have some pretty old electronics. Even though I plan on purchasing something much nicer here in the near future, I still would like to understand the shad's day to day habits better. I fish Bull Shoals Reservoir in Northwest Arkansas. The main species of shad that populates the lake are Threadfin and Gizzard. Bull Shoals is a fairly deep (avg. 75ft.) fairly clear reservoir that is about 5 foot up as of now with water temps in the mid 70's. There are lot's of creeks feeding into it along with shorelines absolutely lined with brush due to the high water. My question pertains to anything to do with how the shad will behave in this lake. Should I focus more on the Threadfin Shad or the Gizzard Shad? What are some ways I can predict the schools everyday routines? Any suggestions pertaining to or any suggestions of what I need to know about shad in general would be much appreciated.

Hey slounch...in order to understand shad, you're going to have to understand plankton (both phyto and zoo)....it never ends
