Shots above are of a couple of shad taken by John Leach during the 2007 season on the Susquehanna. He said the run was no wheres near as good as last year - probably due to the heavy rains. His results were fewer and smaller fish.

Here in Washington there is no limit and the Asians and Ukrainians love them! My husband and I use them for Dungeness_crab bait. We get so many crab using them as bait that everyone around us just watches in amazement when we bring in our pots with limits of crab.
