Bluegills
1 Reply

On Saturday I hit the same pond as last time. This time the bluegills were being more picky about size and action. Pretty soon I did jig up a chubby 8" bluegill and 2 largemouths with a Rapala…Continue

CT Ice Fishing Report

I hit a small pond in CT with a buddy on Sunday. I was jigging with a size 3 Rapala Jigging Rap. It took a while for action to pick up. I lost 2 largemouths and 1 bluegill, but did catch a bluegill…Continue

Ice Fishing

Been a while since I've been on the blog. I was busy with the fall striper run in CT and never got any panfish to hit locally before ice started to finally form.

Have been out on the ice 4 times since it became reliable in CT.

Jigged up a number of calicoes with a chrome blue Rapala Jigging Rap W-2 rigged with no extra bait while at Dog Pond.

Have been to a quarry in Wilton twice recently and jigged up a number of 8" bulls and a few yellows all…

New PB Rocky!

Back on the Blogs Forum. Been doing mostly saltwater fishing for the past 2 months. Not much panfish action in freshwater, but have caught a few largemouths, chain pickerel, and recently did a river smallmouth day. Here's a report for my recent panfish success.

After coming from the private lake that usually catches me those monster gills and not catching anything there, I went to a local city park that I'm familiar with and has the Pequonnock River running through…

Local Sunnies

I've been more into the saltwater since mid May but have been doing some local freshwater fishing.

2 days within the past 3 weeks I took it easy close to home by going to the local river system. A Rapala Husky Jerk HJ-6 is what was getting me a number of rock bass. Those aggressive redbreasts are starting to go crazy for anything they see. Have caught a few with one being a strong 6 incher.

Still sticking mostly with saltwater for now but will still be getting…

Recent Panfish Action

Been a while since I've been on due to all the trout action in CT.

One day I had recently was an evening panfish bite.

Earlier this month the area had some heavy downpours that must of caused a run off from the nearest crappie lake. One evening after fishing somewhere else, I stopped by 2 areas of the river that runs through that lake but below the dam of that lake where it's all river. Redbreasts were into a Rapala Original Floater and landed 5 no bigger than…
