word of caution, my local pond had a LOT of standing water on it today. I didnt go out on the ice but I suspect we lost a bunch in central and eastern CT. Be careful out there.

The warm winds tonight and tomorrow could really do a number on the ice. I do think some spots with 10Ē+ should hold up but definitely will be exercising extra caution this weekend. Cold Friday night and Saturday will hopefully sure things up a bit for Sunday.

Good luck and letís not go swimming

The ice I was on late today lost about 2" from mid-day yesterday and tonight will be rough on it. Still should be fine on areas that were really solid before, especially once it cools down again.

About 5 or 6 inches of good ice under about 2 inches of rotting, granular ice at Lower Bolton today and the bite was red hot for panfish jigging. The fish were definitely responding to the coming weather change. The fat lady is getting ready to sing for that area I think.

That area looks familiar. If it's where I am thinking, I do pretty well there too. That is a nice fish!!

I drive by Beach Pond yesterday on our way to breakfast at our favorite dinner and itís wide open on the main body where it was fishable 5 days ago.  Hardfloor said it first!  We took what was most likely our last ice outing for the season in the killingly area.  The same pond we fished last Sat on 10+ I lost 4-5 inch in 2 days.  I would guess that pond will be shot too in another day or so.  We went out with a bang though with lots of action on bass 13-15Ē and a few more jumbo perchÖ.Good luck to those who keep at it while there is still some ice around!

Nice Bass!  I tried posting some pics from today but got an error.  I was thinking about going NW for another trip or two.  Decided to go shed hunting for antlers the next few available days instead.  Good luck and catch some good ones!!!
