    yeh you are right, they are fun on light tackle with a shad dart we can catch em just about every cast when they are thick, sometimes 2 at a time. Can you catch shad at all 3 of the lock and dams? Im ready for the stripers to start running again too. We go out and fish for shad and use the shad that we catch for bait. Gonna catch either stripers or cats.
