    Just wondering if anyone has an update on the shad run at Lock 2? Haven't been there in 2 weeks and was wondering if they were still there and if they are pretty steady. If so, I bet the fishermen are pretty steady too. LOL

    I was there last saturday checking things out. The fishermen in the boats were anchoring right next to the dam and catching them.

    Wolfman,
    I know Joe has said before when the shad are running good, that he's counted 100 boats between the dam and the boat ramp! One boat would catch a shad and another boat would net it for them and hand it over. That is too close for me. It's an hour drive from my house so I can't just hop over there to fish. I just was wondering if the shad were coming in good this week so maybe I can go this weekend and catch some. Thanks.

    there were maybe 3 boats at the most during the same time, so maybe the shad wasnt running that great, Im not from or familiar with the area , just working down here temperarly as a telecom contractor.
