We took the kayaks out of Ancarrow's Landing and Wayne started getting into a few Hickories on a large gold spoon. I stuck with the 6wt. fly rod and got a few as well with the two biggest going 1lb 14oz. Light faded quickly and we soaked a few chunks and caught a couple of blue cats (neither of which were worth measuring).

Remember to check river levels and predictions before heading down there. When the water is running over 10,000 cubic feet per second (cfs), line/depth control will be very difficult and paddling against that kind of current can be strenuous.
Best of luck. The shad are definitely here.
