Went Bass fishing on Friday...Lakes are warming 55-60 deg F...Rap river should be warming up nicely. The early warmth should mean an early Shad run. Anyone out there yet catching them?

Fished above the Rt. 1 Bridge Tue morning...one other guy there and saw another guy just below the bridge. Water temp 48 deg. Caught one small shad. Even the birds were not doing very well. Also moved down to the docks later in the morning and caught nothing/saw nothing.

Went fishing at Gambo Creek at the Dahlgren Navy Base (NSWCDD). Caught two American Shad on a chartreuse and white Clouser - go figure! I was targeting White Perch, which were also in there in good numbers. The shad were about 5 feet away in two feet of water.
