Hello, my first post on this forum. I'm in South Eastern Connecticut (stamford) and it appears that all the good fishing in CT is at least an hour away from me.
I thought the Wire Mill Pond in Georgetown ways going to be my ticket, but the whole lake seems to be shut off these days.
Unfortunately, I have a young family, so it's tough for me to get to some of the more "famous" spots in CT. I suspect most of the good spots near me are in NY. I need a place that's within 30 minutes of me for post work sessions.
There's a nice little pond in Fairfield where I take my kids (they both now caught and returned their first carp), but the fish seem to top out at around 10lbs. It fishes almost like a commercial fishery back in the UK.
Also interested in fishing together if anyone fishes near me. I feel like a right weirdo sometimes fishing for carp on my own when people ask! I'm hoping to come to the event in Middletown on the 21st of April.
Finally, a bit of a disclaimer, I'm a dedicated float, floater and stalker. Find it hard to sit still behind a rod pod for hours.
Anyway, now you all know most of my quirks, would really appreciate any suggestions.
