get floating nymph flies or mayflies and let them float downstream in a stream for trout. in a lake i will look for surfacing fish and float a mayfly accordingly. for bass a go to lakes and use a minnow fly that sinks. love to catch pickeral on bait fish type flies, run the fly up in close to shore and slowyly work it out as the water gets deeper, pickeral like to hang out there.
went to avery point and used squid for bait. i was fishin for porgys, and caught a pretty nice one about ten inches. i had a rough time with the small black sea bass and the guys already there said the same thing. i also managed one monster sea robin which fought for a while and weighed over three pounds. great day, great location, great tasting porgy.
went out past niantic bay with one of my buddys in a two man kayak and once we got into some deeper water of fifteen feet plus i put on a porgy rig with frozen squid on it and attatched a quarter ounce weight on the swivel. i dropped down to the bottom and immediately there was action. i started off by catching seven black sea bass in a row, all about three to four inches. then we went out a little deeper and i finally hooked into porgy! i got a thirteen incher up to the boat and would have kept him but he got off the hook right at the boat. then i got some more little ones, but i hooked another porgy which was about nine inches, not big enough to keep. then i caught my third and final porgy, then and a half inches, kept him and he tasted great. while i was fileting the porgy i handed the rod to my buddy who dropped down the bait and pulled out a big ass sea robin, about fifteen inches and over two pounds. threw it back because we didnt know what it was at first. later we caught another one, but its was smaller and we decided not to keep it. one hell of a trip with one of my good buddies. porgy tasted good too.
went out to uncas early in the morning yesterday, thinking that right after a storm the big bass would be active. i was wrong. i didnt bust out the old fly rod for this having heard and seen pictures of six pound largemouth bass coming out ofthe depths in the middle of the lake. i fished with a purple senco which id already had great luck with preiously this year, but lothing all along the shoreline and in the deep parts of the lake, even when i wacky rigged it i got nothing. i also tried a green spinner bait, and twice i got a decent largemouth to follow the bait to the bait, but wouldnt take it. then i finished up in the back cove in the back of the lake where i threw the purple senco again, and i felt a hit, the rod tip bent pretty good and the fish fought pretty good so i thought maybe i had hooked a pickeral by chance, but when i got the fish to the boat it was a largemouth that measured a sunning four inches and weighed in at a whopping less than a quarter of a pound. after that i saw some other largemouth of about the same size jump to about a foot out of the water to eat bugs, and i determined after four hours in a kiyak it was time to go home. but as i always say, a bad day fishin is better than a good day doing anything else.
so i pulled out the fly rod and the yak to go to horse pond and get a little fishing in this evening. id done well using the color purple so far this year catching some largemouth, so i tied on a purple and white fly that immitates a small baitfish, and threw it in by shore and on the outer edge of some lillipads. i caught one decent crappie in closer to shore, it was about 10 inches and weighed just under a pound. the second one i caught off the edge of a group of lillipads and hooked another black crappie, and this one was much nicer measuring in at about 14 inches and weighed in at 2 pounds. after that the bite seemed to shut down, and i caught a few pumpkinseeds, but it still wasnt a bad night, its always good to get out on the lake and relax a little.
i had fished this lake a couple of times earlier this year, but the bass havent been active until recently. i used a green spinner bait without any luck, but then i threw a dark green senco with red fleck in the weeds on the right side of the lake which resulted in a nice three pound largemouth bass. that was the only fish i caught, but my dad caught a nice two poundlargemuth on a pop-par later in the evening.
i went to the salmon river today for a couple of hours, waded in and fly fished. i used a mayfly and must have fished most accessable points before it dawned on me that i hadnt even seen any evidence of fish yet. the water was still cold, but the water level was real low which leads me to believe that the fish may have moved into the connecticut river or just further down stream. i checked the feeder streams and there were no fish to be seen and the water level was extremely low in all of those as well.
spent a three day camping trip a lake williams capmground, fly fished each day. i was with my dad, uncle, and their buddy, but they used conventional tackle for the most part. we all went out in our yaks and they managed to scrape together a few largemouth bass by using soft plastics such as lizards and blue worms they rigged weedless. i used flys that imitate bait fish, hoping for large mouth and pickeral seeing as there are not any trout in lake williams. i had great luck with purple, light blue, and bright yellow colored flies picking up sixteen decent pickeral, i caught one small one being only ten inches but the rest ranged from fourteen to eighteen inches long. i also caught one pumpkin seed in a cove i deemed "pickeral cove" because every time i fished it i caught at least two pickeral. the pumpkin seed weighed nearly a pound and i had never seen one that thick or large before.
i fly fished and used conventional tackle at horse pond from about one in the afternoon to six thrity at night. i caught plenty of pumpkinseed and blue gill with the fly rod. with the conventional tackle i tried plenty of different tactics, jitterbug, pop-par, spinner bait, but the only thing that worked was a purple soft plastic worm that i let sink until it hit the bottom. it yielded a two pund largemouth bass, which became dinner.
