    I need a little help here.... my friends and I go fishing on a boat on the potomac but the shad are a pain in the backside to find sometimes. Can anyone tell me where a good place is to find shad? We have the cast nets but we are spending 2 hours sometimes to catch some shad for the big blues. There has to be somewhere to catch them a little quicker than that.

    Thanks in advance for the helpful info.
