    Weekend Forecast 12/05 - 12/07/2008-0


    Me n King Miss Hat 11 28
    Saltwater fishing has slowed down. Our blackfish season has
    just ended. Few of the lakes in
    the NW corner of the state have 3 to 4 inches of ice. Panfish and smallmouth bass. One northern pike entered in the winter-long icefishing
    season. Atlantic salmon on the
    Chitucket and Naugetuck Rivers. Guys are landing fish from 2 to 20 pounds with a fly, spoon, or inline
    spinner. Conn River the fish have
    started to move into wintering locations. Northern Pike active on coves and shallow
    weed beds. Target the fish with a
    large shiner under a bobber or a large 7 to 9 inch soft plastic or Rapala.
    Black crappie bite very good on Conn River with slip bobbers and small shiner
    or casting jigheads with small shiners or soft plastics.  Find the fish over structure from 6 to
    20 feet deep in the coves of the river. Thames River will start to heat up with big striped bass moving up the
    river. Guys have been catching
    fish to 28 inches with small soft plastics and a ½ ounce jig head. As it gets colder, the fish will move
    up to Norwich Harbor where they will stay all winter.

    Small Fry—Giant Striper-1


    I was contacted by Chris at Chris' Bait and Tackle inquiring about a junior world record. She told me a nine-year-old weighed in a fish over 50 pounds. I rode over to the Eastern Shore to check it out, and sure enough, an excited ilttle boy had a fish that tipped the scale at 50.9 lbs! The existing Small Fry record was sitting at 47-pounds, 9-ounces. I assisted with the application, and congratulated the boy and his family.

    Bill Garren and his son, Jake of Ironto, VA were floating eels off of Kiptopeake, when the bobber on the rod Jake was holding dipped under. Jake described how he fought the fish for only three minutes! He also explained that when his Dad saw the fish, he thought it was the biggest striper he had ever seen, but didn't let on to Jake because he didn't want him to get too excited and risk losing the fish. Jake said he battled the fish cleanly to the net his dad held ready.

    Jake's striper is now a pending IGFA Small Fry World Record. It is a clean application, so I don't see any problems with it's approval.—Dr. Julie Ball
