0.5 lb. American Shad caught by Mike S fishing on Saturday November 22, 2008 at 16:35 near Durham in Spokane County, North Carolina (NC), United States North America using a Rapala Rattletrap Perch a Lipless Bait by Rapala International

This is the biggest shad I've ever seen. Thought it was a Bass playing in the shallows. What a weird day of fishing.
