  1. Wow on 15 lb tst Great catch!
  2. Yup my bad hickory have the spots! Didn’t think they got that big. Ppl were begging me for them for bait calling them Sea herring..
  3. How do you tell the difference? It had 7 dots down it’s side!
  4. CMC back bay, the shorts I’ve been catching all spring are being joined by bigger fish today! They were fun on the schoollie rod! Sporadic bluefish of all sizes here and there. Even saw a weakie caught but some Hickories not sea herring were so fast and fun jumping multiple times in shallow water! This one was 18” and a rocket! Time for big rods and herring plugs...
  5. Last couple days, schoolies on Blue Backs up river. nothing over 24” for me guys bait fishing getting bigger size on bloods! They liked purple over silver sp best. Herring are pretty thick now! Water was cooling off again this morn with smoke on the water and glass conditions. Afternoon was better than sunrise..
  6. Great insight, I will apply that perspective you have gained through experience! In my scouting, and studying the flow, I kind of thought that's where they'd be! Your ability to articulate it is exciting to me! I could listen for hours. Thanks for the informative posts.
  7. Ha, no my local River is full of them now and I was going to apply it to the Big D for timing! Thanks again I learn much from you!!
  8. Jay, when do Gizzard Shad show in relation to the others? Thanks for the great reply to yosco, very helpful.
  9. St Criox wild river steelhead 8’6” fun rod..
  10. Cold windy morning no stripes but river Pickerel are gettin Fatter, fun on the Crappie stick..
  11. Thanks Eric, no problem, i know what you mean, will do..
  12. Thanks everyone who replied. I think I’m ready, PFD check, felt check wading staff yup, new 9’ st croix pan fish, 24 new flutter spoons. Can’t wait to catch em up!! Just being up there is enough of a pleasure. Fish will be a bonus..
  13. Thank you for taking the time to answer my Question much appreciated! Good luck this season and stay safe..
  14. Catch and release Shad, Im trying to understand these flow rate numbers posted! Ive been scouting and the water looks dangerously fast for wading! So while im checking numbers at home I don't know what would be worth the 2 1/2 drive from the coast? I know Shad guys are up on these things. When kayaking I like fast water too makes nice back eddies not good for Shad from what I read but Im really just a salt guy looking for some bucket list fish. Ive caught plenty in salt on teasers pluggin, as by catch on big rods, fishing for keeper size stripers! I fish alone not by choice up there! Don't wanna waist time or take undo risks is all. Im getting conflicting numbers when searching?
  15. What flow rate should I be looking for Wade fishing Shad? Anyone?
