  • Shad

    Good shad action this morning...anyone local to MD should know the spot. Not very crowded given everyone being home. Lost count of the number of American and Hickory

    I hope these reports don't need to be from a shamrock. I have not caught anything on the Shamrock yet this year

    Nice catch! In our part of the country the shad are basically just for baitfish and nowhere near that size!

      It is a fun fishery in the spring. The American shad (in the picture) are bigger and fight harder than the hickory. But the hickory will go crazy with jumps (nick named "poor mans tarpon). Both will come into the rivers to spawn and then spend most their lives out in the ocean up around the bay of fundy

    Nice catch! Looks like another fun day.

    As a kid....years ago....I remember a time or two going up that way with an uncle and another "old" guy. Went to some small tributaries and they had a rig they made up for "dippin shad".
    That's been 50 years ago but good memories.
