Hey All,

 

Never Shad Fished before but hoping to hit the Merrimack when they start running this spring. Quick Question, What do you guys do with them? Catch & Release or are they Edible??

They’re edible. However, can only legally harvest them from a couple of specific rivers…otherwise it’s catch and release only. So double check that the Merrimack is one of those rivers

I would like to make a trip up to the Holyoke dam area for early Shad soon. but I live on the cape 3 hr drive so if you could find it in your heart how about a honest report 

Supposed to get a lot of rain this weekend - sometimes will shut things down for a few days at a time
