Shad and striper on the rivers

We will be fishing the nuese, tar, and roanoke rivers pending on conditions and where the best chance of a bite is. Shad fishing heats up in February along with the occasional striper and catfish! The shad fishing can be very good with big numbers caught regularly. Then in march we tend to get into stripers more consistent.
