Fishing in the first snow of the year on the Cape

I fished last Thursday morning with some friends in the freshwater at Cape Cod. It was cold, and we quit about noon in a blinding snow storm.
We caught a few trout and some delicious yellow perch which I took home. They are definitely my favorite fish to eat. I practice catch and release on all other species. Harry is pictured above hooked up with a feisty rainbow trout. As usual he outfished old Woo. That may be my last trip until the ice fishing season arrives. Stay tuned for the 2008 season. Merry Christmas to all.

Winter is here at the Cape

Old man winter arrived here early this year. Last year at this time I was doing quite a bit of fresh water fishing in the local ponds. I did manage to fish last Saturday at Big Cliff and got my first two trout of the winter season both on bait. They were small rainbows. My pursuit of stripers has ended for the year. I ended up with only 765 bass which was way down from my 1400+ fish in 2006. Very disappointing season for me. I will continue to fish the ponds all winter either on the ice or open water. I would love to find some nice fat yellow perch through the ice. Stay tuned.
