Talking NC shad action

The past four days of shad fishing on the Roanoke River near Roanoke Rapids, NC has been pretty tremendous. There are millions of fish in the river right now. They are just starting to filter above the rapids at Weldon, NC but there are more than enough fish below the rocks to keep people happy. On Wednesday there were four boats fishing the pool at Weldon and all of them were having multiple hook ups whenever I would look around. We are actually using 3 and 4 weight rods with floating lines and casting small Clousers on size 4 and 6 hooks. Plenty of action and when it is sunny you can watch your fly come through the water and see the fish slash at it four or five times on almost every cast! Pretty fun to say the least.

Obviously this picture shows two guys spin fishing. It is from an article that a state outdoors magazine ran on shad fishing with me. You can read the piece on my site at
It is pretty complimentary and I didn't even write it!
