    Does the Huron still get a big shad run around Halloween?

    They were fun on ultralites

    I did make it out today after a short day at work. Wife and I set out for the first trip of the year on the Huron, water was a bit dirty, no leaves and not much current but we didn't care. We had a short battle with a steehead only to come unbuttoned half way to the boat. We hit a few more areas up and down the river only to land 2 pike. I'm not too worried about this season's start, I'm just glad to get out and fish. We are headed back out in the morning.

    Its been about 5 years since I was down there, but they used to run so thick you could practically walk across them. I’ve seen it like 4 feet on both sides of the back where you pretty much can’t even see water. It’s just all shad. Looks straight up out of some crazy Alaska salmon documentary.

    We’d drive down from Detroit after class and have a blast with tiny jigs and 4 lb line.

    I'm not sure what's running but judging by the number of cars parked on the rawsonville rd bridge something is running coming out of belleville lake.
