Shad in the River 3/30/2013

I caught my first Shad of the spring last night around 5:30 pm here in Lambertville and was very happy about my one fish, which was a large healthy female (Roe Shad). I’ve found that I have the best luck Shad fishing between 3pm and 7:30pm when the sun goes down, but nonetheless decided to give it a try in the middle of this afternoon with the sun high in the sky and bluebird skies. My brother in-law John is in town for Easter so I brought him along but didn’t promise him any fish as it the run has just started. We ended up catching 6 Shad in less than 2 and a half hours on a beautiful afternoon, something I would have never in a million years predicted. My Spring has officially begun now, and I plan on being out there as much as possible. I have a lot of openings for afternoon Shad trips, all of the information can be found on my website. The Delaware River is the last river where you are still allowed to catch these fish and the state of our Shad fishery has been deemed to be almost completely restored to the healthy levels of it’s heyday. Please call me at the number below if you’d like to try your hand at catching these hard fighting ocean fish that visit our river every April to spawn.
