Grabed two neighbors yesterday and ran to Coon Is. for a little fun.
I think God gave us shad to restore faith for the spring salmon fisherman. :grin:
Anyway, we got there about 4pm and anchored in 14 ft. One guy was using a silver flicker spinner---10 minutes----HARD TAKEDOWN---- It 's a springer. Now the fish ain't big, but it's on 6 lb test and an ultralite rod :shocked: . It played for a long time, maybe 20 minutes or so. I grabed it with the net as we just knew that that tiny hook couldn't hold much longer. Nice REALLY bright clipped 6.5 lbs. What a hoot. :laugh: :laugh:
Oh, the shad. We moved 3 times and got in a groove for a short time. Got 8 crab baits in the boat, lost about 10 or so. Quit about 7pm.

Hey Terry:

Congrats on the Salmon I wish I would have been there early enough to see that fight. Thanks for the live report. We filled our bucket and headed in. Gary's daughter was having a great time reeling the Shad in. :cool:
