  1. We have a lease and also hunt state land (Connecticut hill) and found the same. Little to no food in the woods. We got hit hard with Gypsy moths again. We also have a natural creek that would flow into a main stream and that’s almost bone dry due to the drought this year. Our cameras have been dead on the hill in the woods with almost all sign down at the crop fields.
  2. Fished the FHC today. We had a game plan to work offshore 500-700’. I set down at the 300’ and planned to work my way out. We had Solid marks of bait and fish from 400-600, we ended up grinding out 6 decent fish and finished 7th out of 60 boats that entered. We ran 3 coppers ( 600 / 450 / 300 ) and they never took a shot. Dipsies out 250 / 270 / 300 all took fish pulling flies. Riggers down 90 / 110 / 120 all fired with a mix of flies and meat. Overall a slow bite with one double and then one fish and hour after that but good enough to get us in the top 10.
  3. Drop your spread deeper. As the sun come up the light will penetrate further down in the water column illuminating more bait deeper for the fish. This is normally the time when they will be more “sluggish” and eat an easy meal versus having to travel up far in the column and chase it. This is where the long lines (coppers) and long lead dipsies will be most effective. Another “old rule of thumb” is “bright sun/bright lures”. A lot of chartreuse, silver, chromes, and UV can be very productive in sun. The mid-day bite can be fast and furious once you figure the program out
  4. FYI… the village of Fair Haven boat launches located on King St and Cottage St. are closed. They are undergoing some fixing and major upgrades. The tentative dates for re-opening are May 1st for Cottage St and Memorial weekend for King Street
