Went downtown Richmond at 4:45 PM and met my brother who had been fishing since 2:30 PM. He had caught saved back a couple of Hickory Shad he had caught on a shad dart. We set up and it immediately began. Non stop eaters 1-4 pounds until we left at 6:30 PM. We filled the 40 quart cooler again and gave the fish to the bank fisherman. While we were kicked back tight lining cats, I saw something I have never seen before. Two separate boats were slow trolling for shad. The two young men in a jon boat flat wore them out. Incredible! Two older guys in a Starcraft V were doing the same thing but not as good. I noticed the starcraft was trolling a little faster. The Jon was trolling at a crawl those shad dart spoon combo rigs with no added weight. The starcraft was trolling a little faster with only silver spoons on a leader behind a 1/4 oz bullet weight. Jon boys outfished the Starcraft 4 to 1. We left the river and the bite was still strong. No Stripes today. Had to make it to a Hispanic Market on Broad Street before 8:00, (Bodega Latina). Every Sunday they fix a seafood stew. It is served in a monster sized bowl with homemade tortillas. Fish with bones in, Whole head on shrimp, Octopus, Squid, and King Crab pieces in the shell with a few chopped vegetables,(not many). All the bones and shells make the broth more flavorful. You make a terrible mess peeling and eating as you go but my word is it good. Only served on Sunday and hands down my favorite meal of the week. Going fishing again at 5:00 PM and staying until dark. We'll see if the stripers arrive. Last year I caught a bunch in the 30's and broke off one bigger. I only use my little rods downtown so every fish is a blast.
