Went to Verona for an hour to do some scouting. Fished for an hour. Tried a few different shad darts and weights. Water looks muddy. I was the only one banking for shad. Seen couple guys trying for striper with no luck. Maybe next time.

We'll finally made it out at 630pm to 715pm. Everybody was leaving when I arrived. Most went home with 3-5 each. I didn't catch ****.
My son caught about 30 crawfish on Octobers salmon. So I will eat good tonight.

What part of Verona did u go to? I was there on Tuesday below the marina bank fishing and there was a whole line of guys catching fish. Kinda reminded me of the outlet or the basin. Lots of shad to be had out there right now, no stripers to be caught though. The feather just looks horrible, hope we get some water for salmon season.

Thanks Ant, but I took two fish one was two years ago salmon season. Guy gave me one and I didn't catch anymore that year.
I gotta catch em or I don't eat em. Same thing happened with a striper Wes gave me late last year. I haven't caught a keeper since! So now if I don't catch it I don't eat it.
And I still got some trout..... And am gonna get some this weekend! I BELIEVE

Good luck....I heard Verona was a madhouse this week with 100+ people fishing the area. That's why I love shad fishing on the AR, I'm usually solo!!


So many fish.....such little time

Got 1 of these elusive little *******s. Heading home. Still too slow in my book to target them. No water. So they are definately hiding out somewhere. Fished from 5-6pm.
