In my previous post "GANG-BANGING AMERICAN RIVER SHAD", I mentioned that I acquired a
few component packs of mini-grub jigs yesterday. Last night, I prepped about 25 of those mini-grub
jigs and rigged up my 7-foot Abu-Garcia 1-piece trout rod, Shimano CX2500SQ reel spooled with
4-lb. test Trilene XL line. Drove over to the river at 6AM and as usual there were already fishermen
on the river after the Hickory shad! (Incidentally, the American Hickory shad is a close relative of the
S.E. Asia terubok (Asian shad) which is an endangered species as a result of over-fishing, destructon of
its spawning grounds and pollution.
