You may see me throw it around CT a bit at the night tourneys, but I think as soon as I catch a fish on it, I will retire it. Id love to get a replica made someday and I would hang it from its mouth. I am waiting for that fish 7lb or over for a replica though!

Small, shallow lakes and swampy areas are 100% iced in as of yesterday. Today and tomorrow will be cloudy and in the 40s, so not sure how that will affect it. But it's safe to say that the water temps are cold  :nod:

It took a while for the fall rains to happen. But when they did, things turned around pretty quickly.

Yep, everywhere is in much better shape now, there's a submerged shopping cart sitting handle-side down in Angell Pond that is a good indicator. In August the whole thing was exposed nearly down to the folding part. Recently I walked by there and metal of the end of the basket is visible glinting in the sun under a few inches of water. That's a good few feet gained after a nice rainy fall.

Just catching up here on some of the forum topics from my busy Christmas season.

As of now most of the local bodies of water are way up. Actually a lot of the rivers are above the Norm! But its crazy, we had such a dry summer, and fall really that all the rain we got ran right off into the bodies of water. A local guy who buys hay from my uncle, was telling me he dug an 8' hole in a customers yard for a sewer line, and it was pure powder after about 3' of depth. Crazy!! And that was about 2 weeks ago he told me about it.

So, I follow a guy on Youtube, and instagram, and his name is Nate Marling. Or Marling baits. He makes some awesome swimbaits, and some wacky stuff for his youtube channel. I actually have a mutual friend of his that lives in RI, that has bought some spinnerbaits and a big Jitterbug style bait I make called the Skitterwake from me, and fish with on occasion. Anyways, he drove out to Iowa where Marling lives, and gave him a few pieces of cool wood I have stashed being a woodworker and all. Marling started making baits again for sale, and he is charging some insane prices for these, and people are buying them!! He recently sold a few baits he made from a piece of Butternut, and spanish cedar that sold for $400  :o

Him and I talk a little over instagram, and he sent me a link to his new listing on his website. http://www.marlingbaits.com/

2 baits at $550 and one at $900!! Absolutely nuts. And one sold as he just put them on the site this morning.

Thought it would be pretty interesting to you guys to check out. Here is a video where he actually shouts me out, and says I am going to get a bait that he made for me!


He does make some crazy nice stuff. Maybe someday I will get that good!
