As we move past the mid-point of April, we are now looking at the optimal time for another fantastic American shad fishing season on the Delaware River! This is indeed THE time of the year in the sections of the river that I fish for the annual American shad run.
There’s just something truly special about a big female American shad fresh from the ocean caught on one of my fly rods, or on an ultra light baitcasting rod, or on a 8′ long ‘whispy soft’ all fiberglass spinning rod… that makes for an absolutely incredible fishing experience. Let’s not ignore the male of the species…. those smaller, yet much more acrobatic males, are a blast too!
I hope that you can make it out with me to enjoy this great fishing opportunity over the next month or so. Check out my ‘Press’ tab for some fantastic video of this great sport!
If you want to pursue something else, then there are plenty of other types of trips Fishin’ Fun Charters runs…. including walleye and smallmouth fishing on the Delaware River, along with muskie, largemouth bass, and trout/salmon trips at various lakes in NJ.
