Looks like fun Trever, nice fish!!!

I fished for about 2 hours late this afternoon. First time on the water since July. Wasn't planning on going today but we finished early so I made the hour drive to the coast.

Caught a limit of Reds +1 and two small Trout.

Got up at 4:30 this morning. Hooked up the boat and picked up a friend. We headed down to the Connecticut River for Pike. My friend backed me into the launch. I am now floating and my motor turns over slowly. I also have no power at the bow trolling motor. As i am floating DOWN the river and powerless i i finally come to rest at a private dock and tie off. All 3 of my batteries are dead even though they charged all night.

I guarantee it would have been a BANNER DAY.

Anybody hear about the record setting Blue Catfish in VA? Caught in the lake where my parents have a lake house....this thing is HUGE! 143 Pounds...Crazy to think that those are 40-50 feet under your boat.

I havn't posted on this thread in a long time.

I have made a few trips over the past few months but not as many as I did last year.

I will try to post some pics of past trips latter.

Here is a pic from today.

Nice day for mid Jan., Upper 50's and sunny. Water is cold, in the 50's, have to fish slooooow on the bottom this time of year.

5 Reds, 25", 23", two 21", and one small one.

Where are you at in Canada? We have had the same weather down here, it has been 50 degrees about 4 times in january so far, but colder weather is on the way.

I plan on going out ice fishing for the first time in february, for a tournament/benefit for my cousin. Cant wait

Glad to see this thread going again.

Ice fishing?????

Our 50ish degree water is cold enough for me!!

I think I can remember last year the water was in the 40's for several days. That is serious here, fish start dieing when it gets that cold.
