    Default Jeff’s 2019 AR Shad Reports

    Ok, get ready folks! Shad are being caught on the Sac down by Freeport so they are right on schedule. They should be in the American in 2-3 weeks. Did a recon down by Paradise today but the Sac backed it up so it looked like a lake. Flows stated around Watt and Gristmill looked fishable. Let the games begin!

    I saw Jeff today at the shop Expo.

    He is very tan (snow boarding?) and super happy looking now that he is retired.

    I will have to get him to help my grandson catch his first Shad this summer.

    Can't wait! My favorite time of year on the AR. I'll be out there swinging for them as much as possible starting this weekend.

    Looking forward to your reports Jeff!

    Been trying on the American, mid and upper river, this past week but didn’t hook any. There are more anglers trying for Shad so everyone is chomping at the bit. I think they should start showing up in the lower river next week.

    Still no shad on the American. I’ve been trying every day and run into a lot of other angers who are on the hunt also. I didn’t see it but I heard that this past Saturday morning there was a big line of anglers up in the upper river like it was the peak of the run. They weren’t there on Sunday!

    I get my hitch put on my car this Friday, so I will be out there after work starting next week in my little drift boat.
    So long and thanks for all the fish!!!

    Still no shad for me but I was fishing down lower and Garret Smith floated by and told be he saw a few small males and that a guy caught a few last night. Looks like they are starting to trickle in! I would try as low as possible since they are not up high!

    Saw a sea lion at Gristmill this morning heading up river following the shad or headed to Goethe to feast on the hundreds of suckers hanging on the South side above the bridge!
