Searching for rectangles....

I do it about 5 nights a week. I stand outside in the dark, cold night on the edge of a foot bridge with some decent lighting, scanning the water. The lighting isn't great, but it's enough to cover about 15 yards of water. I'm looking for dark rectangular shapes peaking out of the shadows where the light ends. When I see movement, I hope off the footbridge and cast towards it from the shoreline. More often than not, I walk away empty handed. I usually target carp, but the area I fished last night appears to have some stocked trout wash in to it from Sandy's wrath. I pulled two fish, one over 18 inches, and quite ugly. These fish were stocked a month ago, and had a lot of strength to fight, which is a good sign.


  1. Well there's no no such thing as an ugly trout. Now carp and catfish are another story.

  2. eating rectangles...not bad at all.
