Well Lake Champlain and Vermont aren’t the first places I think about when thinking about hot spots for Crappie fishing. The attention from National fishing articles focuses on the amazing largemouth and smallmouth bass fishery of Lake Champlain. But Crappie bass? Then I found the Instagram page of Dylan Smith and saw that this guy catches a lot of crappie and some very big crappie on Vermont waters including Champlain. Dylan was kind enough to take some time to fill all of us in on his approach to Crappie fishing on Lake Champlain as well as the Connecticut River in Vermont.
When you think of the best States and Provinces to go walleye fishing, I am guessing that you are like me and Vermont is not one of your first choices. Imagine my surprise when I ran across a guy from Vermont on Instagram with quality walleye pics. I immediately concluded Kyle Richardson was spending a lot of time crossing the border and going on fly-in trips to Canada’s best trophy walleye waters. Well, I evidently was wrong. This guy is catching these big walleye from 2 Vermont fisheries. And Kyle spends a lot of time filling us in on how to walleye fish The Green Mountain State. He also gives a great story about his most memorable catch. Read to the end to hear this amazing fish story.
