View Full Version : Shad from my yak???

03-01-2013, 06:02 PM
I have not fished for shad in over 20 yrs, all I know is tossing the darts off the fuel dock of the old Four Seasons Marina. Is this doable from my yak? Troll or just drift and cast the typical rig? And where on the AR would be the best for going after them from a yak?
Thank you in advance for the help, my paddling is as important to me as fishing.

I read a lil more than I had previously in the how to thread, sounds good!

You can catch them via yak anywhere on the AR. Just find the silver freight train going by, anchor up, and start catching.

I sat in a rubber raft just upstream of the Sunrise launch ramp a couple of years ago and absolutely slayed them with a shad jig under a bobber. I'll bet I caught 50 or 60 in three hours. It was incredible. Once I got the leader length and action right, it was non-stop.

Go for it!!
