Spring Crappie fishing was AWESOME!

I was very selective in harvesting only males that were not involved with guarding beds....2" Powerbait emerald minnows, 1.75" lunker city baby shad in Alewife and 2"tubes were key baits fished on size 4 1/32 jigs....all sight fishing to individual fish....HAD A GREAT DAY!

Vermont Bass fishing in Lakes and ponds is getting tough as the water temps drop but the Landlocked Salmon and Lake Trout bite is starting to get hot!
Thank you for the view and please stay tuned.

Vermont Lake Fishing is AWESOME

The lake fishing is AWESOME right now. Small marabou jigs, tiny tubes, champlain nymphs, crankbaits, jerkbaits, white bh streamers and clousers are all killing them.

Southern Vermont Lake Fishing

This time of the year I am back and forth between river fishing and lake fishing. This week I had an A-List Regular client on the lake for his second lake trip with me. Below are his comments: “Our rivers in Vermont are beautiful but all fishermen who visit Vermont should experience the Lakes in Southern Vermont. They are beautiful and have a biomass that is truly unbelievable. There is no better way during a short trip to Vermont to take advantage of the fishing opportunities that these lakes provide than fishing it with Chuck!” “When you fish the Lakes with Chuck it is good to be open to all of the types of fishing that the Lake provides. I prefer fly fishing and fishing rivers in particular, but I am a better fisherman and fly fisherman for the time I have spent with Chuck throwing jigs, tube lures, Champlain nymphs and shiners as well as casting flies to large fish on the Big Lake. “ Sincerely, Bruce Nelson

Southern Vermont Lake Fishing

I had a father / daughter trip this last weekend....the daughter earned her Vermont State Master Angler pin on this one trip.....The master angler program is put on by the Vermont Fish and Game Department.There is an adult and youth category. Each of 33 species has a size requirement and when you catch 5 different qualifying fish you will receive a master angler pin. The lake fishing is EXCELLENT right now!
