Mrs. Shad Pappy (Gloria Magaro) with her first 2006 Delaware River shad. Watch out George now you have some competion.
Here and below - L to R George Shields, George's buddy, and Tom Schoonmaker who were fishing with Shad Pappy. Now they are hooked. I will put in buddy's name if someone ID's him. Spring 2006
Catch and Release can be fun too. Stocks of American shad a getting depleated. Do what you can to restore them to prior levels. Let those big roes get upstream to spawn.
