Had the day off from work so headed down to the Rapp. Got my waders wet around 11:15 about 2 hours before high tide. There were fisherman on both sides of the main channel. I watched a few minutes while rigging up,lot's of casting but very few hookups. I tied on Croaker's unamed shad fly and situated myself between a couple of fly fishers. About 15 minutes later I landed my first shad of 09. I missed catching any last year on my two trips so I was happy to get the skunk off. (0fer last week also) Catching was pretty tough until just before high tide when myself and one other fly fisher seemd to figure them out a litttle and started to hook up more consistently. I left about 4:45 with about 18 shad and two perch. The other guy was just slaying them (10 caught to everyone elses 1) while everyone around him wasn't catching anything. Water levels were good from the recent rains and slightly off color. All in all a great day on the Rapp.

A couple of pics...

Looking forward to my next trip next Tuesday.

Nice looking shad. I just wish I had time to go myself.
