Shimmer Stone Strikes Again.

Familiar face and repeat customer Bill Glass had a great morning.  5 fish, 4 browns and a bow all were over 16 inches with two touching the magic 20 inch mark.  The Shimmer Stone has been working overtime, taking all but one of the fish landed today, and both bigger fish.  Smiles all around, looks like spring is a knocking at the door.  Nice weather out there despite some gusts of wind and the fish are starting spread out a bit as well.  Starting to look like we may have a great spring here for fishing in Connecticut, I guess we will have to wait and see. 
Check out this shot, you think these guys wanted that stone?   Stand by for round two more to follow tomorrow.

Well, well to say today was a totally different day is putting it mildly.  After dropping a few this morning, and having some snafu's, it was looking like the day might be a wash.  Then Bill came through like I knew he would.  He managed to stick this fish that stretched the tape to 20-1/2 inches, and quite fat to say the least.  It's safe to say that the Shimmer Stone is making a name for itself, as this shovelhead couldn't resist.  Good times.......  More to follow in the days to come.
