Hi AR Shad Fishermen and women,

I have not been able to do much shad fishing this year due to horrendous work hours and travel. I have a window of opportunity this Friday 6/27 through Sunday 6/28. Are there still shad in the river to be had? If so, what general areas and times of the day would you recommend?? I'd sure like to catch a shad or two before it is too late. I've always had success on the AR with very small pink jig heads with a champagne curly tail. Is that working this year?

Thanks all. Your input is much appreciated.

Morning or evening is best, your same jig set up is best. As for a spot it changes daily, you just gotta find the schools. Been two weeks for me but folks are still catching them

She sung June 1st for me as far as it being worth it to even go out. Being tired at work cause I was out fishing till dark is only worth it when some numbers of fish are being caught.

She will be croaking soon. There are still being caught. Try sunrise bridge and upriver for best chance.

Damn. I wanted to save some for shark bait. I went a couple times and caught up to 15ish fish at Verona and kept telling myself 'eh, I'll keep a couple next time'. In previous years I hit the american almost every evening after work but I didnt end up going this year because of the lack luster bite. I guess I screwed myself out of some free bait :(

Cheer up. At least u didn't go and get skunked when it counts and u didn't pay $5 and gas. U just missed a crappy bite. U probably can still get a few tho.

It was a crappy bite but plenty of fish caught if you put in time

Yep, they're still in there. Not big numbers, but I got three at Sailor Bar last evening. I'm hoping they will keep me interested and in the water until salmon season opens.
