I’ve been fishing the Connecticut River for the past couple of weeks. The Walleye are here! I have been catching good amounts of Walleye using a grub jig. I’ve been using a 1/4 oz. jig head with a white and pink curly tailed grub. Most of my fishing has been in the set backs with rocky bottoms and where other rivers come into the Connecticut, that is where the Walleye spawn. Anywhere from 3 to 10 feet of water is where I have been catching a majority of my Walleye. This time of year is very cold, so most of your jigging should be fairly slow. If your jig head is not bouncing off of the rocks then you are fishing too fast. If you find yourself getting lots of snags, try switching to an 1/8 oz. jig head. Rapala countdown diving minos work well too, they are just a lot more expensive to lose. If you are going to use a Rapala , find a sandbar and you will not lose as many lures as you would in the rocks. GOOD LUCK TO ALL! AND STAY BENT -keith
