Most of my points are from adding locations and amenities in areas I have lived or fished, and has nothing to do with my abilities, only my willingness to help others by adding data to the site. 25 years at Elect Boat, Ret Navy (ETCS), haven't fished since I was a kid in the plains states, mid-west, now 52+. Entering my 4th season and looking forward to many more.
Favorite Fish to Catch:
Small Mouths, N. Pike and White Pearch are most fun, trout for eating
Favorite Type of Fishing:
The Matzuo lure that caught the 5 lb bass on Aug 7
Shakespeare: Cirrus 6' 6" Medium, 2 pc; Excursion 7' Medium, 2 pc; Excursion 6' Medium, telescope pack, 6 sect + handle; Excursion 5' ultra lite (oops, now 4'6"), 2 pc BPS: Medium Heavy, 2 pc; Bionic Blade 6'6"
After several days (May 5th, May 20th and May 30) I've decided Mansfield is to long a drive to go looking for pike. A couple of nice bass and 1 nice C-Pik, but NO PIKE. The lure has been the most productive that I've used in a while though. Large spinner blade, UV reflective orange (on one side) gold on the other, large orange beads, tipped with berkley 3" minnow. Also in silver with UV reflective green tip. On MAy 20th the C-Pik were hitting the lure so hard that it surprised me (every time) that they were not pike.
First trip to Salmon Cove, hoping for a pike or two or maybe a striper, but it was a nice day, and the first kayak trip of the year. Put in around 9:45 first fish around 10:40 and last fish around 1:15. Several ospreys in the area. No luck on the pike, but 2 LMB, 3 yellow perch, a good sized pumpkin seed, and a crappie.
Week away for the 29th Anniversary with the wife. Spent Friday and Saturday in Lyndhurst. Went to Medieval Times for dinner with some friends and then, on Sunday, headed to Lake Absegami. Checked in and went to the cabin 1. Pretty cool location and the area is beautiful. Since I didn't have the canoe or kayak with me, I was limited to fishing from shore. Cabin 1 has a very weedy water front. If you go here to a cabin with shore fishing in mind get closer to cabin 6. During the normal season (Memorial day to Labor Day) there are boat rentals available. And if I had more time and knowledge I heard there were other rental places in the area, but didn't find out in time to make use of it. Caught a few small pickerel from the dam and from the area around cabin 6, but nothing else. One day we ventured out to find another place. We ended up on the road between the two dams at the lower end of Harrisville Pond/Lake. Caught nothing there either, but now that I am a little more familiar with the area and picked up some NJ F&W information I will by able to get around better. Southern NJ is an amazingly beautiful part of THE GARDEN STATE.
I will update the trip info as more comes to mind.
Hoping for a pike or two, but not to be. Did come up with one small :-) catfish though. I have a new found respect for the power of a catfish! Wore me out. Medium rod, 10 lb braid. It didn't want to give up.
After making 1 for the camera, I thought: why not one for the Fish Finder, so I painted one and made a second one. They can be put on seperate Scotty holders so I can use the rod holder as well, or both on one and forfeit the rod holder. Swivel mount hardware cannibalized from a flex tripod. 09/28/13 08:42 PM

Looking for some new info please. Can anyone tell me some good places on Lake Champlain to fish for Largemouth/Smallmouth bass? Going up for a week starting next Friday morning for the LCI and then vaca. I will be staying on Isle La Motte for the week.
Hello every one, the plan to 2012 is go fishing with new friends and create a blog in this group about kayak fishing in CT, RI, MA, NY that will inform and educate everyone who wants to join the adventure. Tell them the good places to catch a fish so they love the sport as much as we do. Plus we want this group to grow and to go next level, maybe we can find some sponsors for a tournament in the future, so we need your help on it, like us on the top of the page so can get known by other and tell to your kayak friends about this group. There is a adventure in ours plans, get a bunch guys and go from perhaps Groton, CT to Fishers Island, NY for a day of Fishing, all from our kayaks, maybe in the beginning of this summer, so lets us know about your opinion on this and your ideas.
Almost time to put the boat in and catch some early bass. I need some help please. I will be vacationing on the Cape this summer (West Yarmouth) and heard there is some good bass fishing around there. Any suggestions you could give me would be great. Also looks like there are a lot of motor restrictions (size wise) on these lakes. Will they let me on these lakes with the motor up or prop off? Any info would be appreciated. Good Luck this spring.
