In this interview, we discuss Connecticut bass fishing with angler and school teacher Derek Handberry.
We interview a lot of bass anglers from Connecticut here at DockTalk365 but I noticed that Kyle Quine does a lot of fishing for two other not as popular Connecticut species, crappie and northern pike. So while we do talk about some of Kyle’s bass fishing, we mostly focus this interview on his crappie and northern pike Connecticut fishing. Kyle caught the monster near record crappie pictured here earlier this year and is focused on beating the State record next year. Also, his northern pike advice for fishing Connecticut is spot on.
Dave Miller is a tournament angler in Connecticut. Dave fills us in on his fishing including some of his favorite Connecticut waters. But what I really like about this interview is that Dave is a bit of a tackle junky. Dave took some time to give us some reviews of his favorite fishing tackle. Dave also has some really cool sponsors that I was not familiar with and it was great to get know more about their products.
While many of us focus on the top names in bass fishing when we think of tournament fishing, there is a whole group of anglers that spend countless hours focused on tournament angling despite having lives filled with a lot of other commitments. Jason Lestage is one of those fisherman who loves and thrives on the competitive aspects of fishing. And as you will learn is always in a tournament mindset when out fishing. Jason is from Connecticut and fills us in on his year of tournament fishing as well as his favorite waters to fish.
