Did not run into any super schools of stripers yesterday so no fast and furious action. Did manage catch several lone wolves including this 5 pounder. Caught on ...more exo-swim swimbait. Housatoic River, Derby CT
What a day, I’m not exaggerating when I say I must caught 100 stripers today. They were all schoolies at 3-5 lbs, but they fight like smallmouth on steroids. And ...more they just choke the lure, they don’t get cheated. It was my first time fishing for them and I just posted up over their school in my canoe. When they moved, I would paddle around a bit until I found them again. I have to say the BioSpawn Exo-swim swimbait is my new favorite lure. Yesterday regular bass and today stripers, Just deadly. Caught on the Housatonic River next O’neil Park in Derby CT.
First Striped bass! Caught on an exo-swim with a VCM swim jig head. Caught on the Housatonic River next to O’neil Park in Derby CT.
One of several smallmouth caught in just a quick half hour of fishing on the Farmington River today from the bank. Killed me to have leave, lol. Caught on a Crappie ...more Maxx Squirmin Shad in Blue Pearl color matched with small minnow head in white. Been a killer rig for river smallmouth lately.
Another one of the better smallmouth, river was loaded with them. Every catch had two or three followers. Caught on Naugatauck River in Seymour CT. This one caught ...more with the Gizzet Little Tough Guy Jig Head paired with Cabela’s Go-To Hoochie Koochie Minnow, both in white. I urge you try this set-up if you are going for smallmouth, Trout, or any panfish. Gizzet jig head pairs well with any small minnow. No I am not a paid spokesperson, lol.
8.4 lb Largemouth caught in Florida. One of about 30 plus I caught with Captain Morris Campbell. They were caught with live wild shiners on a bait casting rod and ...more reel. This was a new technique for and captain Morris was very patient as I literally could have caught 50 plus with all the ones I missed. Bottom line, Captain Morris Campbell is the best guide you can find. His expertise is second to none. If he said “your gonna catch one” you did. Thank you captain Morris and son for the best day of fishing of my life.
