Shad fish - where can I buy?

I have visited this site a few times, but finally felt compelled to join and open this thread, for a very simple reason - craving for Shad fish!

I come from the north-east part of India (Calcutta) and have grown up to love a delta fish called ilish. Very bony fish that requires one to sit at the table for hours to consume tiny morsels of fish - almost a zero calorie food considering the effort that goes into separating the bones from the flesh. But, its taste is unique and no other fish comes close...until, I heard of the American Shad, which I am told is a cousin of the ilish.

Where can I buy this fish in the bay area? My research tells me that the fishing season in May, a long way off, but I would like to get armed with the information.

Appreciate any pointers.

Thanks & regards,
