They're starting to hit pretty good here in Pierre. I caught one Fri at Farm Island - 30" - 14.5lb. The shad are spawning in Farm Island and I netted 24 Fri morning and filleted them, then I freeze them for bait for the summer. I went out right after cleaning the shad and caught one big one and three 2-3 lbs. Had a lot of bites that I didn't hookup.
