Recently moved to the Cape (Mashpee), and was wondering if and where the shad run here. I know the boys in CT are getting ready for them to show up soon.

Not of any consequence. All the Cape rivers get hickory shad, which are a lot smaller than American shad. But for the American shad, the closest runs to the Cape are the North River/Indian Brook run in Hanover/Norwell and the Palmer River run in Rehoboth, MA (near the RI border).

The Connecticut run is the biggest and best in New England, but last year's run wasn't the best.

Thanks for the info. Your right last year wasn't great for shad back in CT, but I had a lot of fun when I was able to get in to some.

I've heard that Shad fishing can be great fun, it's too bad the fishing isn't as good as it used to be.

I'm interested in checking it out though nonetheless, but I need more information...
When?
Where?
With what?

Thanks

I only know about Shad fishing in CT. They show up in the rivers about the same time as Herring and Schoolies. They're a blast to catch on light tackle, shad darts, small kastmasters or small spoons seem to work well.
