This is my first spring fishing this river. I'm sure these guys show up every year. The river is full of small browns but there has to be a few eating these bad boys, right??? Also these shad are running up from a lake, you think anything else might be following them up???? Either way I will be throwing some big stuff just to be on the safe side..

Throw big white zonkers and and big yellow ones, fish early morning and later in the evening and through dark. We have the same thing here, the dam opens up and its a conveyor belt of shad. Go big, go really big!

I know this is a fly fishing forum and all, but that right there is what spinning tackle was made for!

Depends where you are, but there might be stripers coming up after 'em too.

Nothing decent yet, i gave it to this little one . Well, I did have a carp on that would have went 25lb, but I'm not a carp guy.

So would you fish for the shad or go after something else? I have a lake near my house that these shad were going off the other night. Not sure what they were eating but I wanted in on the action!

Those are gizzard shad, so the only way to catch them is to snag them. No stripers here either, otherwise i'd have to give them a go...

The shad finally started to disappear and guess who was looking for food.
