The Hawg Forum / Nice Weather!
« on: October 15, 2021, 04:55:04 PM »
What fall weather we're having this year!  Was out today and water temps were still 68, crazy for mid Oct!

Fishing hasn't been as good as the weather though for me. I'm catching fish but not much for size.

It was on the news last week the owners lowered the water so much that boats were sitting in the mud.

There's an ongoing lawsuit about the water level being to low!

They don't pop up very often, all you can do is keep looking and jump on it fast if you find one.

Even new ones are hard to find in stock!

Nice to see a smallie caught!  Been a few years since i got one in there.

Don't feel bad about Amos...that place always humbled me at night :P

The reason for it is to get the weeds off your boat so you don't transport them to a different Lake. Maine has wash stations at some lakes.

The problem is no one is going to use it.  Don't be surprised if you see someone washing their car with it  ;D

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

What lake are you headed up to?

Moosehead Lake area!

Heading up there tomorrow 8)

Been to Weber once, caught a ton of fish but they were on the small side. Great Pond for smallmouths and Messalonskee if you want some pike action. That place is loaded with them!
China Lake is a great largemouth lake!  Cobbo is about the only lake in that area i haven't fished yet. I think the pressure and popularity of it has kept me away, some day though  :)

No drop off in the southern part of the state!  Some ponds are getting overrun with them.

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!

I never did the window deal, didn't think it was necessary!   All i do is crimp the rivet like you mentioned and let it naturally break in!

I have the Smaller Royal Legend II that performs well also.  Just noticed the 200 is double the price of the regular model. Seems like a big increase for a bigger spool..still a good deal  :thumbup:
