That's good to know. What kind of flies? Are you sure they weren't just snagged in the mouth? I would think that if they hit flies, then they would probably hit a sabiki rig as well.


I can't personally verify but me and this kid had it out about how he caught gizzard shad on a fly. He seemed pretty confident in the fact. I know for fact people have caught asian carp, but good luck getting the secret out of them.

Heres the kids blog, take it for what you will.

we catch those little 3" to 6" gizzard in the summer time with cast nets in the upper chesepeake bay. they school up pretty good. i am sure you find the same thing in your delaware river haunts. but not sure if you can use a cast net. those little gizzards are the hot bait for summer time stripers. but too small for cut bait in the spring when the big stripers are in.

tom, the gizzards you find at conowingo... whats the size range? are they all big ugly ones, or do you see many the size of the one that was posted in the pic above?



Dan, I have seen all sizes but more on the bigger side I think. I would say anywhere between 9"12" for most of them. Just a guess as I am always in a hurry to get those things off my hook.

I read the blog, and it seems plausible. I guess if you can match the hatch, or in this case bloom, you might have shot at a fair catch. Maybe I'll spend a few days this spring experimenting. My thought is that if I drift some green or brown colored pieces of cotton balls on a small hook downstream I can fool a few.

Took advantage of the nice weather today, 6 crappie, 3 white perch, a few snagged gizzards. Nothing really of size but it was a fun day. All on a 1/16th ounce jighead tipped with a piece of nightcrawler, nothing on a spinner for over a half hour.
