American Shad Recap for 2018

posted May 12, 2018, 3:07 PM by Karl Hoelper
 Top April and trips not including split shad and bass. This year was not as good as last year but it was on fire, we had few days that it was just tough to catch them and the conditions were poor. There is still shad in the river but we are done targeting them.

  1. 45 American Shad
  2. 37 American Shad 
  3. 23 American Shad
  4. 27 American Shad
  5. 63 American Shad
  6. 75 American Shad
  7. 68 American Shad
  8. 101 American Shad
  9. 78 American Shad
  10. 67 American Shad
  11. 45 American Shad
  12. 26 American Shad
Best day was 158 AMERICAN SHAD (full day trip with a half day trip)

Striped bass have in the river but hard to get to eat, lots of success with some big fish with skilled anglers while plugging. The lower river has yielded very little bass.
