    Not sure about your area but on the Feather river I carry 4 types of lures. My go to set up is a 1/32oz jig head with a 1" grub tail. Shad spoons, you'll have to make these yourself by soldering a Aberdeen hook onto a willow leaf blade and paint the blade with bright colors. Sometimes I use a corky above a size 4 octopus hook. Last thing I carry are red and white shad darts.
    I recommend using 4 to 6 lb flourocarbon, shad have very good eyesight. Also their mouths are paper thin so don't set the hook or be too rough with them.

    Shad in full swing

    Not many reports coming in. I guess everyone is out catching and their arms are too sore to type reports here. How awesome is that!!
