Shad season is how I met Wes, BiggAnt, SwimbaitJunkie, about 14 Jeff's, Jimmy, hell I think I met most u clowns by me casting over your line!

And some jerkoffs in boats, which with the low flows we don't have to deal with this year.
I did have a well known and respected Flyguy in a boat go thru me and another dude today, he was guiding and told us where there were shad and just sailed past us and said good luck. He coulda anchored and ruined it for us but was an awesome angler. Gonna tell him thanks when I see him next.

I asked a couple guys about whether or not they've caught anything but the only answer I've gotten were, "we got some bites but no stick." Hmmmm... might have to keep carp fishing until they're in full swing on the AR... Anybody else having luck on the Sac beside BIGG ANT?

Fish are already spawning..... there's really no need for them to hang around anywhere. They can do the wiggle and head back out to sea

Dang it! Now I really gotta dedicate one full day to filling the cooler! Just hope we get some showers then see what's up! Nice catch though BA! that cooler is fuller than all the guys I've seen at Discovery so far.

We fished around 7 boats in our area and we still managed more fish (landed, hooked, lost)than the grubbers. There's plenty of fish, they're just constantly on the move

nice ice chest... i was actually hoping they were biting the grubs cause im trying to get my nieces 6 and 10 yrs old on a few... i was hoping to just drop shot the grubs... as it would be easier for them... not sure they can handle casting the darts from the boat and reeling them back in...(safely) ps i sent this before i saw your post ant...

The grubs are working.....I just can't sit still that long and wait for them to come to it. I like that unexpected feeling of my reel coming to a complete stop & zzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Nice to see them already here! For the guys that are keeping them what do you do with them? Are you eating them, or just keeping them for bait? I know a few guys who smoke them but I am just curious if your keeping them in the freezer for bait or not. Thanks for the info!

Somehow that nice oil that shad have seem to go perfect over a nice hot steaming bowl of rice :o

I smoke them very carefully and often use this recipe from Hank Shaw with them. It's tedious, but worth it every single time. I often take the shad aioli to dinner parties or serve it as an appetizer. It's always a hit.

I guess have to be shameless about this and just ask "Where are the spots that I could actually go to and fish for shad with a few fishsniffer dudes?" I've never fished for shad only striped bass and salmon. Do you guys think 2 shad darts enough for a day?(got them off big 5 coz i want to try shad)

Depending on where you go..... you might lose them 2 darts pretty quick. I'm guessing the darts from big 5 have hair on them? Swing by a bait shop if you have time and grab yourself a pack of red/chartreuse shad darts(red tip..chartreuse body)can't go wrong with this color. They'll hit it all day

I'm new to shad fishing. This weekend will be my first trip out for then. I'm gonna hit the Verona Marina where the feather and the sac rivers meet. I'll be fishing from shore. What exactly would I need bait or lure or floats or bobber wise? This shad rookie needs your help lol

3/4 oz sinker.....3-5ft leader.... shad dart. Red tip.... chartreuse body is the hot color. ... you can catch them on that color all day long. Other colors like pink/white.... blue/chartreuse... red/white.... green/white all have there time and place.

Let it hit the bottom.... once it does.... crank your reel really fast for a couple turns to get it going...... then glide right in with a nice steady retrieve. If that doesn't work.... slow it down. Sometimes if your fishing shallow you might need a little bit faster retrieve. Pay attention to where your line is at in the water..... follow it with your eyes and your rod. When the retrieve speed is correct you can stick'em over and over as long as you remember your groove

Just wade out into the river with your empty ice chest, announce to the fish that BIGG ANT has taught you how to fish and watch them voluntarily jump into the ice chest. They want no part of that.

FEAR THE ANT!!

Took the boat out on Thursday. Anchored in 9 feet of water on the Sac and got some shad. Nice to just put the rods in the holders, prop the feet up, and wait for suicide runs. Lazy fishing to say the least. Watching all those guys on shore making hundreds of casts wears me out LOL We got mostly males with a few females mixed in.

Shad carnage!
Gotta say I do enjoy sitting the pole in the Scotty rod holder and waiting for shad. I kick it every few minutes to entice a strike!
Still prefer casting though.

Fished near Buoy 5 in about 26ft of water and the flats near buoy 2 in about 12ft today. Used Ghost, Grass, Eel and Pile but only managed to catch Bull Head. C-Biscuits in Vallejo had plenty of nice bait today. Marked lots of fish especially at buoy 5 but no takers.
Awesome weather today and lots of boats on the water. The catchin seemed to be slow for all. Water temp 50 to 52 degrees.
