Yup - we have shad runs down here, Hickory and White (American) shad. In the Cape Fear, NE Cape Fear, Pamlico & Tar rivers. Maybe other but those for sure. I haven't shad fished since I was much younger but as it aproaches February each year, I say I'm going to grab a handful of shad darts and go fishing.... Maybe I will this year..... Just hard to get away from this-here pond I live on...:D

The Roanoke has a really good shad run. I like to use streamer flies on a floating line. It makes it much more enjoyable, because you catch them basically every cast only they rocket out of the water going insane over basically any fly you use. But the regular tackle works just as well and is just as enjoyable. The shad run is similar to the striper run in that you can't drop a line in without catching a fish.
