A few shad have been trickling through the dam this past week. Generation has been starting at around 7 am and ending by 10 am. The day this fish above was caught the water was dropping and shad were starting to come through. Rob hooked this fish and it stayed on bottom for a few seconds. We thought he had hooked bottom but then it shot to the surface and hit the water making quite the splash. After a few runs we landed this super nice fish. Great job Rob. Have to give kudos to the new Cortland Top Secret tippet. This stuff is tough and strong.
