N.C. Shad fishing

N.C. Shad fishing




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. Fish Fish Fish

Neuse River from new Bern to kinston is always hot for Hickory and American Shad.

If the winds die down below 20mph tomorrow, I'm gonna try the little bridge.

Let us know how you do. I've done plenty of Shad fishing on the Cape Fear, but never in the Outer Banks.

I never made it out. The wind was blowing pretty good the whole time I was there. Maybe next year...They should start running here in Maryland in the next few weeks. Banana

Well this might be too late, but some of my Reel Repair customers have reported some Shad on the Little Bridge and Jeannettes Pier. We are not talking " Lock and Load " A few for those serious enough to jig.

I won't be back down until May 4th. I'll bring a rod just in case....

One of several bucks from the DE river today. The roes will show up later, as a rule. All returned to continue their venture upriver

I went out Sunday morning hoping to hook a few. I didn't catch a thing in an 1 1/2 hours. One guy said he caught 3 shad and a little perch. The water's running a little high but is clear. Hopefully this weekend will be the start of run. I have off Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday for the next 3 weeks. I love going during the week while everyone's at work. I never have a problem getting my prime spots.
