Went out in search of specks or reds, my girlfriend caught a small striper shortly before calling it quits.

You get a decent shad run near you? Or is it more upriver? 
 

Trying to get into that next year with my girl.

I haven’t caught a Shad before, I saw tons of them at a spot I fished earlier this year and lost a couple giants back to back. Since then I’ve been wrapping up schoolwork and gearing up for the inshore species season.

Caught my pb striper this morning at 48”. I also caught a 37” and my buddy caught a 40”. All caught on the jig with JLS custom rods.

Beautiful fish man congratulations. How do you like the JLS rods? I've never actually held one but they seem to be a very popular rod.

More drum and trout around, couple of small fluke as well. Didn't see any signs of shad for the first time in awhile. Got fouled a couple times by large Cow Nose Ray's.

Thank you! I’ve fished a few of the different custom rods and they’ve all been nice. JLS is my favorite followed by Backyard Custom Rods. I currently have 1 Backyard and 4 JLS.

Had fish almost every cast up to 35” at a shore spot. All of them were on 4” paddletails.

That’s good fishing!

It was a great evening. I left them biting because the mosquitos got unbearable.

These guys were in thick again tonight. Had to work through them to scratch up a few fish. Dropped a nice red along the shore and caught a couple trout. The bait and shad moved in thick right around dusk.
