I never fished Shad before, I haven't actually fished in about 15 years!

But I bought a new rod and gear with the devils spinner and hope to head down at the weekend, I'll give detailed weather forecasts in exchange for some tips if you see me down there :)

Got one myself this evening. I took the long way down from Dublin to Wexford and did a quick 20 minutes or so. Some familiar faces there.
