December 2nd on Ct River Details
Name:December 2nd on Ct River
Created By:jwall046
Details:My friend who has never caught a smallie ever and i headed to the river yesterday. We arrived at 8am air temp 34 degrees. The driveway down to this private ramp is a good 25-30 degree descent (only 2nd trip here so i forgot about descent). Not bad if it's dry! Imagine a full size truck with 20' boat heading down a ice descent with 100' drop on the side. That area wasn't bad. But the parking lot prior to the water was all ice! We didn't get in trouble but i could have gone bad quick! The weight of the truck and boat just slid on its own. i used 4x4 lo 1st gear to idle into parking lot.After that was over we idled to our 1st spot and started drop shotting. Another boat said they caught 3 and headed home. We stayed there for another 45 minutes. I had 2 bites but no fish. My buddy was getting the feeling of a skunk.
I had one more spot i heard about from my friend. So we idled over. Mind you the fog was very thick and never lifted. So we knew there was possibly 3 other boats on the water. It wasnt dangerous but we couldn't see 100 yards to tell if they were on the spot. When we got near 2 boats showed through the fog. The were near the area i had in mind. I stopped 100 yards or so shy of them and found 40' water with bait-fish. It was soon game on for me! then another shortly after. I told my buddy to give me his rod so i could tie on a blad bait for him and he might catch his 1st smallie. 15 minutes later we get a double! Mine 2lb ish his 4.24! He went from freezing and feeling like a skunk to hero! His 1st smallie and it was a pig! Mission complete!
Shortly after i caught my 1st walleye! What a great few hours on the water! We ended with 9 smallies and 2 walleye
A few 1st and a good way to finish 2012!
