Nothing says Spring like shad fishing. I headed down to Weldon, NC yesterday to fish the Roanoke River for the shad run. I have been doing this now for about 10 years and I always look forward to going. Shad are thick in the river now. With the shad in the river the striped bass will not be far behind. The striped bass run is one of the best in country. New this year I will be offering trips to Weldon, NC to fish for striped bass on the fly rod. The month of May is the time to get after the stripers down there.
