    1. we have pretty good walleye fisheries in NJ so you could def have them in CT, you'd have to check with your state fisheries department

      Always seeing great catches with this fish. I do not think we have them in CT but wish we did. Always seem to be in Midwest...correct me if I am wrong..

      G R E A T tasting fish. Actually, one of the very best. The ONLY problem with a walleye, someone forgot to tell them to fight harder. If they had the fight of ...more a largemouth bass, guys would get a divorce to fish them full time. I just moved back to Vegas but haven't brought my boat up from Southern Calif. A 21' Chaparral that LUVS to chase fish.

      Excellent Muskie, Darren
      Been fishin' for only 78 years.
      Smallest….a SMALL bluegill from Lake Mead at age 2.
      Largest, a 6' 9 1/2" halibut in Alaska, ...more tipping the scales at 286# off the Kenai Peninsula. To word it nicely, it "Kicked my posterior." I learned, the lighter the line AND rod, the better the fight. My favorite....believe it or not, a Kencor XL1 with two pound test. A small crappie will bend it 180 degrees until landed.
      My heavy outfit, a Penn International two-speed 50 loaded with 80#.
      Now back in Vegas and ready to attack Mead and certainly zip over to Lake Powell for those FANTASTIC STRIPERS. On our first trip to Powell a few years ago, five of us were fishing in my 21' Chaparral bowrider. I was in the bow and was immediately hooked up. I hollered for the net. NO RESPONSE.
      I turned around and saw the other four guys were hooked up.
      It is AMAZING the number of stripers in Lake Powell. Taking the guys back there in November.

      N O TE !
      If you have a boat AND fisherman ready to go, call me!
      It would be fantastic to take a few boats. That way we could spread out and find the LARGE schools of stripers and radio us right over or vice-versa.
      Also, you could teach us to play poker! Yeah...right.
      The very best to all and to all...………….TIGHT LINES.
