Are these fish feeding on top, in the middle of the water column, or on bottom?

From what you've described ("smashing the shad"), it sounds like they're hit them on top. If that's the case, then a crease fly of the appropriate color does quite well. Skipping bugs and pencil poppers also do the job, but the crease is pretty tough to beat.
