Shad and short stripers at Inlet
Lee took Paul on s trip to Indian River Inlet on Sunday. The wind was light and the weather mild. The water was clear and birds were active. There was pelnt of space to fish. Paul caught this shad on a small arctic Fox treatment in white with some ice wing fiber in UvHue pearl. He used an 8wt Redington Crosswater Rod and a Lamson reel loaded with the new Rio Coastal Quick Shooter line. The pink color really stands out. It loads well even in short. Paul saw the fish break up current from him and made perfect cast to intercept the nice shad. The main slug of fish had not come by yet. Resident fish and Shad are willing participants though. Get out and fish!
