Can someone tell where and when the shad run around the Outer Banks. I'll be down in the couple of weeks and was hoping to hook into a few of the poor man's tarpon. What kind of lures do you use? I use mainly shad darts, little spoons and twister tails in Maryland and do very well with them. We have a great shad run in Maryland when the water's flowing well in the rivers. I've never tried it down there and would love to give it a shot while I'm there. If it works out I'll have another excuse to come down for another trip.
