Hey Now Friction Angler,

Keep that thought, and when you see me posting up the "Shad! 2021" thread, ping me in it. We like virgins! grin

But seriously, I'd be happy to show you the basics, as would any of the regulars. If nothing else, you need to meet the regulars. Some are characters, but all are genuine, good folx who want to see others succeed.

Anywho, the season is all but over here, and it's time to close this thread. My last 5 outings, Wed-Fri last week, and yesterday and today, all I got was the stinky kitty skunk, unless we count the yellow perch I snagged thru the gills yesterday; it was smaller than my pinky finger. rolleyes And the cotton is getting thicker by the day, clogging the reel, and guides. That's it, I'm done with shad. Until next year...

Maybe I'll start heading down to the shore once in a while. It's been a few years, and well, blues on light tackle I don't guess I have to tell you. Besides, my old surf pole might like to soak a few chunks, again. I might even fix and rig up my old crab pots.

Whatever you pursue, tight lines!

Well you had a good year. Thanks for the posts. Very entertaining.

If there are fish to catch. I'll be there to my end.

Hello No Fish Today. As I believe that I had previously posted, we used to fish at the Enfield Dam many, many years ago, and we would catch one shad after another - some days every other cast, as the shad congregated just below the dam.
Obviously I have not fished there in many years. I have heard that the dam has long since deteriorated.
Is there any shad fishing happening in that area?
We used to pay $.25 at a booth manned by a local to access the area, and fish as long as we wanted.
Those were the days! Probably in the 1960's - 1970's.

Fishing: the art of casting, trolling, jigging, or spinning while freezing, sweating, swatting, or swearing.
