Derek, you are most welcome. Let me know when you are in California, and we will work out something
Saiki, and Dev, I was using fly fishing gear. Seven, and Eight weight fly rods. Coupled with Teeny T-200, and Teeny TS-350 sink-tip fly lines respectively.
Size 6, and 8 Shad flies were used. The fly is cast downstream at 45 degrees, and allowed to swing in an arc. All the takes were at the end of the swing.
You can achieve the same results with spinning gear, casting Shad darts.

If you are interested, I can PM you the technique (from a book) for shad fishing, with spinning gear. Let me know.
I am no expert at Shad fishing, as this was my first trip for Shad.
All the fish were released
