    Not much. Caught a few the last couple weeks.
    Water temps went for 66 to 46 to 52 in a week and half

    I bought a boat in Longwood this weekend last year. On the way back to NC, we put the boat in at Cameron Wright to run it some and fished for around an hour. Caught a couple of bluegill but no shad. Been thinking about pulling the boat back down there in maybe two weeks. Thinking of fishing Pecks Lake first day then back to St Johns for shad. Should I be fishing further upstream than Cameron Wright?

    Got 25 shad today out of mullet lake ramp.
    From govt cut to past mullet lake.
    Scattered but small schools.
    Most came trolling, a couple casting.

    What are shad? Are they good to eat?

    No they aren’t good to eat.
    Make it to 520 but I don’t think much farther

    How far south do they run? Do they make it to Lake Washington?

    I am glad to only be a bird hunter with bird dogs...being a shooter or dog handler or whatever other niche exists to separate appears to generate far too much about which to worry.
