James Starkey and Zac Scranton, not shown, both of East Hartford, spend time fishing at Harkness Memorial State Park in Waterford Tuesday, Nov. 13, 2018. The men, who were scheduled to work outdoors Tuesday, took the day off because of rain and decided to try to catch a few fish before it turns really cold and before the last of the striped bass in the area migrate south.
