Was there today. Very slow but we hooked into a pretty Chinook and A Monster 7-8 foot oversized Sturgeon on a small dick nite lol. Craziest fight ever. Monster jumped out of the water 3 times before breaking her off. As for shad. They are there so good luck. We plucked a total of 6 in 7 hours :-(

Great to read your dragging your pops out. As to the convincing, just tell him you herd that 122 fish can be caught. Any time a person can spend on the water fishing is well worth it IMO.

Have a good time!!!

This'll work probably. That's only 1 third of it cause the other 2 thirds are getting cleaned/gutted :shock: Very bloody and slimy business

Errrm... kinda... I guess a mile away downstream, where the flows arent flowing 1000 mph. Caught from a boat with one man, one rod, and 8 hrs. Too bad it wasn't me though, was my dad's collegue/friend. We may even go out with him! :dance:

Boat fishing for Shad is Awesome.
There Is a Shad Spot by Where I Live. Its the Same rig for salmon Plunking from a boat but you just use Dicknites. Drop it down and BackBounce it. You can Either keep Backbouncing or Put it in ur rod holder and have a Root beer. :)
