Talking 1st cast of '06 tomorrow?

I don't think I'll make it to the Wilmington show tomorrow so I'm hoping to get out and take my first casts of 2006 . Anyone else planning to hit the water?

Hoping to hit the year round section of the Willowemoc. The weather has been in the 50's around here the last two days.

3/11 report

Well, most of the lakes are still covered in ice so I checked a couple spots on the river and ended up fishing at the baby carp spot on the Housatonic for a couple of hours. There was still some ice on the backwater areas but that didn't deter the carp from coming up onto the mud flats. I saw loads of fish but couldn't buy a hit. Only hookup was a 4# fish that I foul hooked on the dorsal fin . The fish did seem to be looking for food, and there were a bunch of them chowing on something right at the edge of the ice. Sure was great to get out and wet a line. I might have to try some other spots today.

Here are a couple photos. Not sure how well the fish will show up online.

Q

This photo shows a pod of fish that I spooked when I casted. The bright stuff on the surface is floating ice.

This photo shows a couple of tailing fish in the foreground and the stirred up mud from the fish that are feeding right at the edge of the ice.

Nice pictures Quentin.

It's great to see some active fish, even when there's still so much ice on the water.
