City: Waterbury

Zip: 06705
Country: USA
Interests: Fishing,camping, hiking, gaming, exploring new places, mineral collecting, plant and animal taxonomy, astronomy and stargazing, lurecraft, sculpture...the list goes on
About Me: Im a recent college grad looking for work in the environmental field.. that said work is scarce. last year was an abismal fishing season. basically im looking for new fishing partners and this site looked like a good resource. i love nature and am looking forward to meeting people who share my enthusiasm.
Favorite Fish
to Catch:
Bowfin, Largemouth bass, Smallmouth and pike( maybe stripers if i can find a good spot)
Favorite Type
of Fishing:
Spinning Rod, Shore Fishing lakes, rivers and ponds...all i have for a boat is an inflatable raft..so
Water Type: Freshwater
Favorite Lures: Finesse fishing soft plastics, handmade inline spinners, crankbaits, spinnerbaits
Fishing Rods: nothin flashy since my rods take a pounding, i never spend much on them.(50$ max)...right now i hsve a silstar medium action, a medium action lightning rod, a st.croix UL, a tica heavy action and a Trophy Striper heavy action rod made by a small company i found at the expo 2 years back. its proven to be extremely reliable.
Fishing Reels: i use okuma and penn reels mostly. anything with a drag that can handle braid, as ive always hated mono..the memory,,the texture.. the fact it wears out every year.. the invention of braid made fishing far more enjoyable for me
Fishing Techniques: generally i fish from shore. i do have an inflatable raft, but i dont use it all the time. i usually change my technique depending on what im fishing for and where im fishing, but my usual starting approach is finesse fishing minnowbaits like fin-s fish and soft stickbaits like senkos.
Favorite Fishing Spot: probably Scoville Reservoir.. its the place i go the most often, cuz its right around the corner.. but it certainly isn't the best...not anymore...

Scoville Reservoir
3/0/0 - 4/0/0

at the end of march ill begin targeting bowfin at scoville reservoir again. by starting earlier, i may avoid the horrible weed problem i encounter in late spring /summer. anyone interested in catching a prehistoric relic with ridiculous strength is welcome to join me.

Lower Housatonic River

Planning on hitting the lower housatonic once spring starts. ive never had a successful striper fishing trip., mostly because i dont know when or where to go. im teaming up with a buddy of mine who says he knows exactly when we need to get there. Anyone who wants to join me or plan another trip with me, please let me know!

Me with my biggest bass @ Scoville Reservoir
this is me back in '05 with my biggest bass to date.. still looking to get one bigger. this fish was 23" and only 5.3 lbs..prolly had a parasite, because there was more than enough food in the lake at the time.

hey nice fish bro (I like your username by the way), I caught it in a pond in windsor, CT called loomis pond. It's avery frustrating place. There are MANY MANY huge bass in there but they never go for anything. They are smart or something.
