Calico Mania

Sunday 3/18 a buddy and I took his canoe into a CT lake. We went directly to the same area we were hitting crappie and largemouths at last year in early April, which is a shallow cove where a brook feeds in that has plenty of marshy structure.

I stuck with a 7cm firetiger Rapala Original Floater while my buddy played around with small live shiners on 1 rod and a 5cm silver Rapala Original Floater.

Topwater retrieves with the Original Floaters is what had the…

Estuary Cove Whites

2 weekends ago a buddy and I hit an estuary cove along the Housatonic River in CT. Threw nightcrawlers out there with no weight or bobbers and kept on hitting plenty of white perch.

We were into the whites for about 10 to 15 minutes before they'd make a trip around the cove and back 5 to 10 minutes later.

Sizes ranged from small 4" to keeper 9".

With the mild winter we had in CT, I was fishing open water at local ponds in February and kept hitting yellow perch from 6" to chubby 8" all with 7cm Rapala Original Floaters. My main colors were Firetiger and any pearl silver, white, or grey instead of your usual silver black.

Also caught a nice 8.5" bluegill pumpkinseed hybrid last month.

Now that trout season has ended in CT,…
