Shad still in RIC

Recommended Posts

Went Saturday and they were hitting every other cast. It was just awesome. I would not have left if it wasn't for a guy who parked his boat on top of the fish.

Sunday was a little slower but the shad were bigger.

Caught this 2# on a little chartruse spoon. He was so much fun!

Hickories are lots of fun, but look out  when you hook an American!  They have been good this year in the Rappahanock where they removed the old Embrey dam some years back.  I need to fish the water above there to see how many are making the run into these old spawning grounds...  Now if we can just keep a few for catfish bait up here and maybe enough herring to salt down a bucket, I would be in heaven!

I haven't hooked an American yet. My husband did. He said it was like a mini frieght train. It hit hard.

I love the way the hickories come out of the water when you are hooked up. Mini tarpons! : )
