Breaking the Ice
Highland Lake, Bantam Lake, Tyler Lake, Coventry Lake and Lake Waramaug are a few of Connecticut’s popular ice fishing spots – and you can find the latest ice fishing chatter here. For gear, visit a local bait and tackle shop or go big time with a trip to a major outfitter like the Bass Pro Shop in Bridgeport, Cabela’s in East Hartford, L.L. Bean in South Windsor or REI in West Hartford. Once properly outfitted, you can turn your attention to the calico bass, northern pike and yellow perch.
