I've been doing float trips for shad on the Roanoke River about every day this past week. There are millions of shad in the river right now. Pretty awesome sight. In a few more weeks the first of our striped bass will show up. Offshore boats are getting some yellowfins and a friend of mine got a 30 inch redfish the other day, casting a gold spoon in the shallow grass flats. Spring comes a little bit sooner down here.
