My brother and I went downtown at 4:00 PM Sunday to try our luck with shad in the wind. Man was it breezy. Gusts up to 30 MPH. It was nice and warm almost 80. I fished in a T Shirt. As we were motoring up to the I 95 bridge, I stopped to beg a shad off a guy playing one. He said no problem, reeled it in and tossed it over in our boat. It was good size and sure enough an American Shad so back it went. I hope the American Shad come back the way the Hickories have. I do love to eat their eggs a few times a year. My Brother Master Flyrodder caught a few Hickory Shad, not many but enough for bait. We caught a handful of cats, only one big one but a nice one at 49 pounds. Did not see any Striper activity at all.
