I wasn't going yesterday but when 4:30 rolled around, I walked outside. Sun shining, north wind wasn't to bad. Ten minutes later I was hitched up and heading downtown. When I crossed the river on I 95 bridge, I only saw a handful of boats,(not a good signoooh. When I got to the ramp, I saw a guy loading up. When asked , he told me he just finished the best day shad fishing in his life. He had caught a couple hundred on what ever color dart or spoon. didn't matter.(Good Sign:big_smile Got to my spot near the I 95 bridge and it was non stop shad and white perch catching until pitch black dark. I put out 3 small eater cat rods and 4 big cat/striper rods at 6:30. Caught non stop cats 1-8 pounds until I left at 10:00 PM. Only one big cat but what a pig. 40 pounds on the nose and 42 inches long. Did not get any stripers today but did see a few breaking water. Not quite time yet. another 4-5 days and it will go nuts!!!!!!(I hope). Anyway, that was my Monday trip. I am going again this afternoon if I get my work done. the 27th will be here anyday and I won't be fishing for 2 months so got to do it now.
