QuoteReplyTopic: Shad newbie Posted: 27 February 2017 at 2:39pm
I'm still fairly new to North Carolina and yesterday I tried my first effort at Shad fishing in the Neuse river. I didn't have any luck as you might expect on my first time out. I was wondering if the experienced folks on this board could share basic tactics for shad fishing during the spawning run. I prefer a fly rod, but will use a spinning rod or whatever will catch the fish. I understand the basics of the shad biology and migration. What I really need is to understand where the fish prefer to hold, what flies (especially size and color) are good go-tos, and any other basics that someone would care to share with a newbie.
Yesterday I tried a variety of streamers in different sizes and colors. Mostly fished near the bank.
