Good stuff! My grandmother was from Old Saybrook by Deep River. My grandfather used to fish for eels out on the Ct. river.
That fish was caught on a live bunker , but after dark we switched to live eels as bait,
I caught a 31 ( pictured) a 28 , 24 ,22 , 20 18 and 16 , ( all weighed on boga grips then released)
