Shad action is still going strong on the American.  We're finding about a dozen fish on half-day trips on average.  "E" managed to land a big 'ol sucker on Saturday as well.  After a few shad, he wasn't quite prepared to fight that one; that's a decent size fish for a small human to catch!  Contact for fishing dates, I still have a few dates in May and June available for Shad trips.  Come get some!  (720) 785-4925
