After a handful of trips this year finally got my first shad ever around 7:45 last night on the lower American. Fishing with a couple of real nice guys David and Tony, thanks to them for letting me borrow some bobbers. They took about 20+ between the two of them from 5:00-8:00. I only got the one, but didn't realize how light the hits were until Tony and David told me, I think I had been missing more the whole time.

These fish live up to their reputation of being fighters for their size, here's my first ever shad.

Nicely done. Hopefully many more to come. From what I heard the run has been slowing down.

Cheers, Kevin
