The Hawg Forum / Chapmans wash station
« on: June 24, 2021, 10:29:37 AM »
Stopped by the ramp to see how thick the weeds were and saw this. Probably a lot of money for something few will use.
And then there's always the vandals that you know will ruin it :P

The Hawg Forum / CT Trout season.
« on: June 02, 2021, 01:10:40 PM »
Just got the weekly email from the CT DEP and it said the Governor signed a bill for no closed season on trout fishing.

I hope RI doesn't follow suit as i like the tradition of opening day even though i rarely go anymore!

Just saw where Jimmy's wife Chris had a brain aneurysm and a stroke. Sounds like she's in bad shape  :'(


He posted a video on facebook that was pretty heartbreaking. Feel bad for him!

RI opening day is going to be on Wednesday April 7th. I guess they think there will be less crowding during the week!

The Hawg Forum / CT fishing open
« on: March 06, 2021, 11:50:02 AM »
Well CT opened the trout season early again this year due to Covid so everything is open!


I understand the thinking behind it but not sure if it was needed or not this year!
It cheats the people that like the tradition of opening day and hurts the tackle shops as that's a big day for them also!


RI, your next!

The Hawg Forum / Evinrude ends motor production.
« on: May 29, 2020, 09:31:57 AM »
Was kind of a stunner this week when Evinrude announced they were ending Etec & G2 production!


I've never owned any other brand of engine, always had Johnson or a Rude on my boats. My current G2 is my favorite so far.
I have 7 more years of warranty left, hopefully that gets honored if i need it. They claim they will and will still make the parts for them.


it's kind of sad to see them go after such a long history in the boating world  :(

May 1st is tomorrow and finally a weekend in the 60's with sun  :)


It's been a rainy and cold April. Went out yesterday and water temps were still  48 - 50.  I won't miss April  ;D

Just read where Aaron suffered a serious seizure while fishing yesterday.
His mother posted that they found a brain tumor and he'll have surgery tomorrow  :(


Hoping he pulls through alright!

Fishing Tackle Q & A / Floro to braid knots!
« on: March 21, 2020, 11:21:40 AM »
I've been using the FG knot for a while now with great success. it does take some practice to tie but i have it down pretty good.


Came across this video for the Shin Fukae knot and it looks fairly easy and fast to tie. Might have to try it out!

The Hawg Forum / Opening Day?
« on: March 19, 2020, 11:07:20 AM »
With everything pretty much shut down i wonder if the state would consider cancelling opening day?
Some places attract hundreds of people that are fishing elbow to elbow!


This virus is taking a toll and i think it's only the beginning  :P

Couldn't pass up this nice February weather so i got the boat ready Saturday and went out today,


Very nice out but also very cold water, temps were 37 with a little skim ice in one corner (the corner i wanted to fish) got up to 40 when i left!
No bass but got a couple pickerel, nice to have something stretch my line  8)


Hope we can keep getting warmer but the weekend looks to get colder again. Won't be long  :)
