View Full Version : Its Shad Time

Based on a couple of posts coming in this week, it looks like Shad season is starting early this year. Over the past couple of weeks a few of us have seen Shad floating in the river (some dead and some alive). I caught my first one of the season today, and several of the fellas around me hooked into more. The Shad bite is slow right now, but they have just started arriving over the past 10 days or so.

I think I need to get the Shad fishing in early this season or risk missing the run. I didn't take my kayak out today, because I just wanted to do a quick scouting of the area. If anyone is going out next week or the week after on the Occoquan, please let us know.
