Might as well go ahead and get it started. It was about this time last year when I first heard rumors of shad being caught. Anybody heard anything yet?
I got lucky enough to go with Canoecat54 once last year and Me, him, and another guy caught close to one hundred. All with spinning. I can't imagine being patient enough to stick with a fly rod while everyone else is reeling them in on spinning reels.I have built up more than 50 hours of overtime on top of my week of vacation time. I WILL catch a shad this year. I will forgo flyrodding for one and just take a spinning rod. Ready to guide me again Mr. Hobbs?
