Shad, Hickory (Mattowacca, Staten Island Herring, Long Island Herring, Forerunner Shad, Hicks, Tailor Shad, Fresh Water Tailor): Caught in the tidal rivers along the Atlantic coast from Cape Cod to Florida. Is abundant in the region between the Chesapeake Bay and Altamaha River and intermediate waters. Makes its appearance shortly before the Common or White Shad, from which it may be distinguished by the projection and thickness of its lower jaw.
