“Last week's spate of unseasonably warm weather stirred winter-weary hearts of area anglers. And I was no exception. With a May-worthy sun on my back Tuesday afternoon, who could not resist the temptation to drive up to a favorite spot on the lower Housatonic River to make a few casts?”

Extreme Kayak Fishing
[Ya don’t gotta be nuts….]

“’It's an eerie feeling to be out that far in a kayak anyway,’ said Shepard, a 25-year-old electrician. ‘Even with the big boat shadowing you, it's kind of wild. And you can see these huge fish down below and a big hammerhead shark swims by.’”

Don’t forget, a saltwater fishing license is now required to fish the marine waters of Connecticut. You can purchase one from your local bait & tackle shop, such as Newtown Bait & Tackle, or at Town/City Hall.
