PUAKO - 13 Jan 2016 My favorite spot on the Big island
is Puako where fish are abundant.
OK missed a couple of my target species
but all in all a productive fish.
HILO - January 2016
Took a trip to the other side of the
Big Island, met a guide, who introduced
me to Queen Kapiolani Gardens. The
pond is full of fish inlcduing bonefish,
baracuda, and trevally.
PUAKO - February 2016
My go to place to catch fish is Puako.
It can be pretty good at all level of
MOLOKAI - 1 April 2016
Spending a few days on the Molokai
flats in search of my first bonefish.
On this occasion had success with
many papio which are always fun.
Will certainly go back to catch that
WILLOUGHBY - 21 April 2016
The Willoughy River, Orleans, VT has
a great steelhead run each spring. Sadly
we were a day late but there were still
a few holding before going up the Falls
RIVER CLYDE - 12 May 2016
My first trip to the Clyde this season.
Sadly no lake salmon seen or caught
but good news that the lower river is
packed with juvinile salmon parr. Also
plenty of bass and suckers providing
LEWIS CREEK - 19 May 2016
Late trip to lewis Creek to see if any
Steelhead were around. Sadly no! In fact
didn't see or catch any species of trout.
Water low but the bass are now in the
stream and had some fun catching a few
nice bass and the usual suckers who for
once put up a fight instead of just sucking
MAD RIVER - 23 July 2016
When the rivers warm up the only real
trout option is for brook trout in the
mountain streams and headwaters. This
was a short trip to the headwaters of my
home waters the Mad River. Great to see
a lot of juvinile fish.
BERLIN POND - 27 July 2016
Berlin Pond is perhaps the clearest of
it's kind in Vermont. Great early and late
season bass fishing but tougher mid
summer. Saying that a beautiful evening
and the fishing became better as the wind
died down. Pickerel, perch and bass
were on the agenda.
Blueberry Lake - 11 October 2016
Late fall in vermont is wonderful and the
chance to kayak on my nearby Blueberry
Lake is precious. The fishing wasn't great
and there seems to be a problem with the
fishery as bass are normally catchable in
Lamoille River - 13 October 2016
The Lamoille River by Petersen Dam is
where the lake run salmon try to get to
at this time of the year. With drought
conditions they are still managing to make
the six mile journey from Lake Champlain.
I caught a nice one but sadly my battery
ran out during the cast. Salmon safely
returned for another day.
