Single specimen returned to dock. Couple more yesterday. Inadvertent catch with scup as we usually do not keep.
Two specimens returned to dock. Vary large for menhaden seen here in recent years. FOY for this species but we haven't been looking.
Observed good spawning run in the mouth of a feeder stream to the lower Nottoway River. I am certain of the general ID of 'river herring' -- remember when folks scooped them up by the dozen. Illegal to posses now, so unsure of the exact species. Smallish individuals, but good number of them. Water level was 'normal' after being up for a while. Only sighting so far.
Caught high and dry from the receding flood waters in Houston.
most likely cepedianum
Blueback herring spawning at the Pipeline Rapids
Swimming under bridge. Also a fisherman caught one.
