2018 Potomac River Shad Grip & Grins


 It was a tough spring. Lots of high water and days at home instead of on the water. Here are some of the fish we picked up. The shadness madness of rod bending hickory shad fishing never materialized. We are now recovering from a week of heavy rain and thus the shad fishing season is over for us.

These images follow the 2018 Shad Fishing Report podcast.
