Light for Shad
In this instalment of Carolina Outdoor Journal, Bill Powell and Tom Earnhardt fish for early season Shad on light tackle. It’s march, and as the first fish to appear in the spring, these Rose and Hickory Shad are a popular target for eager anglers as they migrate upriver to spawn. The Shad in this river have grown substantially in recent years, so Bill and Tom enjoy great battles with some of the biggest specimens they’ve ever caught on their light spinning tackle. In gear talk they take a look at the jigs, spoons and lures that did the business, while Donna cooks up some Italian style white wine Grouper.
