I had a 3-day weekend, and the fishing was lousy. I knew it would pick up this morning, and I work from home on Tuesdays. So I got up at 4:30, fished for a couple hours, and man did it pay off...
I got about 10 fish in total. The monster pic attached, and the bass that had to be between 4 and 5 pounds (closer to 5... he had a belly-and-a half.
They gave me my first and second kayak rides (I didn't need an anchor or anything as the wind was perfect.).
The bite was really on, really aggressive. Not 1 dink out of the bunch. All were between 1 and 3 lbs.
A big pickerel broke me off, so I was extra glad to boat one (I fish that area with live panfish for them and always use a steel leader.).
While the spot's secret, I'm not a total d&ck. If you've got a two-man boat with a low draft, or a kayak, and live around Dedham, PM me and come along. You'll need heavy gear and experience with top-water frogs/fishing plastics in heavy cover.
I brought an extra pole with a spinner today thinking a couple of the navigation channels might be lure-safe after the rain, and it was absolutely useless.
The ranking score is used to determine how "popular" a trip or location is. It is calculated based off of a weighted average of the number of reviews and the user ratings. For example, a trip with 2 reviews and an average rating of 5 will have a lower "ranking score" than one with 10 reviews and an average rating of 4. This is because even though the first trip has a better average rating, it has not been reviewed as much as the second trip, so it is not as "popular". In the future we may modify the ranking score to take in additional factors, such as the number of views, comments, and photos.
