10-day Fish Pic Challenge - Day 7 - Connecticut River Smallmouths

When we moved to western MA in June 2014, I was excited to be closer to smallmouth waters. However, what I didn't realize is that there would be so many great places to fish within 20 minutes of the house, so I rarely end up driving the extra 20 minutes to get to some of the better smallmouth haunts. That probably needs to change. Shortly after moving, MM and I made a couple trips on the CT River. In addition to getting a lesson in the release schedule and rate, we managed a few smallies of all sizes, including this chunk that hit a tube on a rock ledge in 20+ feet of water. That blog can be found here. I need to get back to the CT, but I rarely seem to find the time/motivation, as it really requires a float partner and multiple vehicles. Maybe I can sneak in a trip this fall. Until then, I'll keep thinking back to those bronzeback fights in the past. Tight lines!


  1. Fishing is the best thing one can do especially with their friends. And yes they also had a great fun too, I can see this in this video.

  2. I’ve read some good stuff here. Definitely worth bookmarking for revisiting. I surprise how much effort you put to create such a great informative website. high tide
