4.7 lb. American Shad caught by Tim Fancher fishing on Tuesday May 17, 2005 at 12:30 in Westfield River near Agawam in Hampden County, Massachusetts (MA), United States North America using a Red and White Shad Dart a Lipless Bait

April and May bring the Shad and Stripers straight up the CT River into the Tribs to spawn. Shad can be a fun fish to catch and I was fourtunate enough to work in Agawam, MA within five minutes of the Westfield River. I would head to the river during my lunch break and caught this beauty between a 6" Subway Club and a sales call! My biggest Shad to date.

WE CATCH THESE IN THE ROANOKE RIVER AND USE THE GIZZARDS FOR BAIT TO CATCH THE STRIPERS, WE ALSO USE WHOLE LIVE HERRING...THEY ARE FUN TO CATCH, LOTS OF FIGHT...

Great catch and because they have alot of bones
They pull hard on your line.
Wouldn't you say ?

That's a big shad! I used to fish for those in the CT River in Enfield... not too far from you. Amazing what they would hit -- basically a piece of lead.
