  • Mattaponi April 10 and 11

    Did some bank fishing for shad last weekend. The Boat ramp at Aylett is elbow to elbow most of the day. Get there early to avoid tangling your line with another. The shad are still around in good numbers. I caught 15 hickory in a few hours. I returned Sunday morning for a four more in the span of 20 minutes.

    Things to avoid other than tangling lines is one old man who pees in the parking lot right in front of everyone. This normally wouldn't bother me, but it is the parking lot where people might step. Go to the edge of the woods at least.

    Don't use Arkie crappie grubs. They are cheap but not the best quality. Buy Creme crappie grubs. The white with pink jig heads work the best at 1/8 ounce.

    I had a bass hit the grub and have caught a little blue cat on them in the past.

    Shad fishing is fun. I stopped at Green Top on my way home to buy some 12 gauge buckshot and rifled slugs. They had some. Yee haw.
