Seem to be a little late getting into the Bay state this year, the harbor and north shore would be a stretch if you ask me. Early MA showings are usually Buzzards Bay and estuaries to the west; Falmouth ponds and Nantucket Sound river mouths (Parkers, Bass, Herring, etc) with the bayside close behind with the fish pouring thru the canal many of which take the right turn onto the flats to set up thick thru May.

I logged an April 10th with bright fish everywhere at the Yarmouth side of the Bass River all the way to the Parkers several years ago. They were there one day and gone the next though.

I am not up on the shad situation although I have caught a bunch of them while striper fishing in the Merrimac (May/June) and down in Rhody.

Good luck!
