I walked down to Stony Brook in Suffield Ct.
Right out my Back door, through the woods to one of the Best Smallie fishing spots from shore, here in CT.
Reached the waters edge at 11am, to the tributary that is between Stony Brook and the Ct River.
Water levels are super high.
The water levels are at first spring run offs!
Couldn't even get under if I wanted to.
Armed with way to much gear, 2 med rods, one with 10# fireline smoke,
the other with 14# fireline yellow, with a chatterbait 1/8oz with a chart grub.
Tossed the chatter bait, but I just wasn't feeling it, waters are moving pretty good, and there was a couple of swirls.
Picked up a couple small smallies on the dinger tossing it at those swirls.
The swirls that started to show up were dotting the surface.
So I put on my Hat Cam hat on, put on a ribbit frog, and started buzzing the surface.
I tried to get down in the tubes and close to the pillars of the
tributary, and a few cast in...........Bam........pay dirt.
All caught on film.
I caught 4 Smallies on the ribbit, and I am very happy.
I Love trying New Frogs and Landing fish, and they were all Top Water
explosions just like the video.
Had to leave at 12:30pm when I started to here the rumbles and
rain was falling lightly.
Life Is Good!
