This trip is for the serious Shad angler. We spend a full day (8-9 hours) targeting trophy-sized American Shad in the Tar River. Our guides have spent years finding the best sections of the river to find these larger American Shad. We cover a lot of water on these trips, sometimes running over 30 miles in a day, to ensure we have multiple shots at large American Shad. We primarily use fly rods but we are happy to accommodate anglers that wish to use ultralight spinning rods. This trip starts at 6:30 AM and runs until 3 PM. For Lunch, we find a nice spot on the river, and our guides prepare a full shore lunch complimented by local craft beers. All gear is provided. Two anglers per boat. *Please note that this trip is weather & water-dependent. To ensure a successful trip we only fish the Tar River during specific water levels. Trips that cannot run due to these reasons will be able to reschedule or fish a different river on their booked day.*

Cancellation Policy

We do require a $200 deposit to be paid per trip. This is a non-refundable deposit except in the event of inclement weather (to be determined by your guide only). If a trip is canceled more than 7 days before the scheduled date the deposit may be used towards a trip at a later date. If the trip is canceled 7 or fewer days before the scheduled date, you will be charged for the price of the trip.
