Springtime landlocks

My buddy/guiding partner Jim and I gave a presentation at the Pemigewasset TU chapter meeting in Plymouth, NH Tuesday night and afterward drove north to fish the CT River in Pittsburg, NH. We spent a few hours each at the inlet to First CT Lake and inlet to Lake Francis. We hooked into a few fish at each place. Overall I was 1/5, 5 on and 1 landed. Jim was about the same, but his fish was a real nice (17-18 inch) fish. Here is a video.

Also, we have Jim's drift boat for sale on E-bay. in case anybody is interested. His new low-profile Hyde is a beauty, but the Tatum he has for sale is a sweet ride too, and a good price. eBay listing

Tuesday we stopped by the Contoocook in Henniker where I got a nice brown - the first on the bamboo rod Joanne got me for Christmas. Sweet!


  1. Gerry,
    Did you take the movie with your Olympus Stylus Tough?
    Just curious.
    Nice salmon. I am skunked so far this year. 3 trips to Winni, a trip to Newfound River, and tonight on the Piscataquog... and nothing. My wife even has me beat- she picked up a salmon on Winni...


  2. Eric,
    If you ask her nicely, maybe she'll let you hold her salmon to get your picture taken! ;-)
    No the video was taken with my FlipHD video camera. Same size as the Stylus, but not waterproof and has higher resolution(HD).

  3. Gerry,

    I think this is revenge for Labor Day last year. I limited out on kings and coho's out on Lake Ontario 4 out of 7 days and then had a monster weekend up on the Connecticut in Pittsburg. I think I used up all my fishing luck in one week for an entire year....

    And no- she wouldn't let me hold up the fish... I got to net it and take it off the hook for her - that was it.
