a buddy and I had the idea of gettin out early today before the circus began. got on the water at 3am and fished all day, finally gave up around 5pm. spent the day drifting shallows and the deep holes, tried anchoring over the deep holes and also the shallow sides of the river. before and after the inside bends. covered from the train bridge in new london to a few bends past the northport bridge. tried every combination of jig type and color (probably multiple times) with only a few bites all day, and 1 12 inch male that wouldve made me embarrassed to keep.
marked fish on and off throughout the day, but couldnt get them to bite. this warm weather has them on a mission and nothing we threw at em caught their attention.
a couple days from now while ill be at work, new london is gonna be popping. hopefully some of the the "out of towners" will make their way to fremont after an extremely slow day. ive never seen NL this busy.
