Caught 2 hickory shad on a teaser in the ocean tonight. Saw a surf fisherman catch a keeper striped bass on a big plug in my surf spot when I arrived at the jetty. I found a squid jig in the parking lot. Caught 49 shad recently.

"Saw a surf fisherman catch a keeper striped bass on a big plug in my surf spot when I arrived at the jetty." - I guess he didn't see "NJ219bands" etched into the sand in your "surf spot"! Hate when that happens!

How big are the Hickory running?
Nice parking lot find, I think it might be Mickeys - just squidding...:)

Ever fish the American Shad run on the Delaware in the spring? Lots of fun on light tackle from shore.

I fought one on 2 lb test line two years ago in Trenton.
