This is a compilation of all the fishing trips in late winter (February 2012) in upstate New York during which I caught decent game fish. I was shore fishing at a spillway heading a small river, and I was using 3-way slip sinker bait rigs with fluorocarbon leaders going to size 4 hooks and breakaway mono leads going to weights. I was using live bait on the bait rigs, including minnows, rosies, baby suckers, and nightcrawlers. I caught a bunch of eater-sized walleye, lost a much bigger walleye as it cut me off on boulders, and caught some smallmouth bass and northern pike.
