James River Shad Fishing - Downtown Richmond

Scott Gregg

Shad fishing with my buddy Steve Taylor and his son Will. We got into a nice bunch of them right in downtown Richmond. This "right of spring" tradition goes back 100 years in Richmond and is a very popular fishery. The best time to go is on a weekday afternoon to avoid big crowds.

Virginia Outdoors with Scott Gregg. Exploring and participating in classic southern traditions of fishing, outdoor cooking and hunting. Scott believes that to keep these traditions alive, new people need to be able to both learn how to enjoy God's creation, and it's harvests, but also learn how to prepare those wonderful dishes that many people will never get to enjoy. Join us as we fish the salt and fresh waters of Virginia and the Outer Banks of NC and create amazing dishes with our catch! Scott is also Co-Captain of Wreckless Sport Fishing Charters, specializing in Flounder, Tilefish, Black Sea Bass, Trigger fish and Spade Fish.
