3 Days on the Connecticut River

The conditions are right for the arrival of keeper sized striped bass so I’ve been putting my time in lately. The water is hovering around 50 degrees, levels are perfect and there is very little debris in the water. I have fished from Hartford all the way to Old Saybrook recently and have seen bait everywhere we have looked… Not tons of it but it is everywhere. We have seen lots of schoolies and I lost a bass that was around 32″ on Saturday but that was the only big fish I’ve seen. Once we get tired of casting to empty water, we have been switching over to pike lures. The pike action has been excellent. We are fishing in 3 to 10 feet of water using the Reaction Strike Revolution Shads. We’ve caught fish on the 4″, 5″ and 7″ baits. Most hits are coming on the pause as the lure starts to fall. Here are a couple of pictures from the last couple of outings:
