That's a nice fish don't see to many large calico's anymore in ct my old fishing buddy has or had the ct state record I think it was around 4lbs back in the mid 70's back when it was common place to catch them over 18 inches on a regular basis. I like your sweat shirt as well since I was born in the granite myself and have relatives that live up the in meredith. shotty

Hey just wanted to make a correction on a mistake I made on the size of calico's caught back in the day, I said 18" was common size I meant to write 16" as a regular larger size with the 18 inchers being  around but not in the numbers of the 16's I'm sure some of the other old timers out there remember those day's when catching 20 plus nice sized calico's along with boat loads of perch was just another day on the pond. Sorry for any confusion shotty

Not too many bodies of water are hosting 16" calico's that is for sure.
