Mark, a pike fishing trip sounds interesting - never targetted them deliberately but used to catch a lot of jacks early season on reservoirs whilst nymphing for trout back in the UK. They were pretty keen on a size 10 gold ribbed hairs ear but I'm thinking that we would be targetting bigger quarry...

What sort of patterns are favorite in this part of the world (Central CT)?

Presumably baitfish representations - any specific species to immitate, realistic sizes etc?

I've also heard of and seen examples of life-size replicas of mice, frogs etc...

Count me in!
