View Full Version : Rossmoor Shad

Just wondering if anyone was having any luck over at Rossmoor. I have been over there a couple of times and still had no luck but I have been hearing that people are pulling them out over there.

Went for a ride a few nights ago and there were lots of guys with empty buckets.

Very few people keep shad from what I see, but there are many more gear people on the river now. If you are using a spinning rod you can still use a Bloody Maria fly pattern with a bobber set up. Just make sure you are on or close to the bottom as it drifts below you. Get the ones tied with UV on the tail and head it helps. Size 6, 12, or 10
Better if you just give up the gear and go fly/spey set up.

No doubt, I'm one who doesn't keep them. These were folks that typically do and do it well. Did see the local Warden out and about checking people too.
