Anybody heard of any shad being caught? The board has gotten pretty quiet. I went down to the town commons in Greenville yesterday afternoon and only saw a couple of people fishing and they said they had little luck. I have to work Mon. - Sat. and church on sunday leaves me little time to fish. I guess you could call me an internet fisher!:D

Fished the Tar river around greenville and back towards washington little more than a week ago and caught 8 with one that had to be over 2.5lbs but went again the other day and got skunked, I think all the rain and freshwater pushed um downriver.

As mentioned about Kinston / Goldsboro area.. they area actually doing good up this way. Just north of Kinston. However with the crazy weather patterns lately.. its really hit and miss.. there will be a good day or two and then a few bad ones.

Reports from a few guys I've met that have been fishing Weldon are that the hickory shad were big and hitting well up there last week and they expect the American shad to run soon

Scott, I was at the river on wednesday afternoon, just watching. It was very slow, but I did see 3 shad caught. While I was there, I was thing that a fly rod may be a good way to fish. I've mainly used a flyrod to do some perch jerking with a mono leader and split shot with a cricket, but a crappie jig may work OK.
Just had my second carpal tunnel surgery yesterday. Very difficult to type at the present. Tell me if you did use that flyrod, and how you did.
