Details:Returned to the same place I went last week. One thing about new places, you always want to try them twice. Now that we are getting deeper in the summer fishing season, the sun is actually rising 30 minutes later than it was a few weeks ago. Doesn't really mean much, I still left the house at 0415 and arrived at Tully River at 0500. Launched the kayak with just enough light to navigate the river without running into anything. The darkness and fog made the river eery, but it was pretty. The sun burning off the fog and bringing light to the day was welcome. 1st fish of the day was a nice little crappie. Ist largemouth bass of the day was caught in the same place I caught bass last week. Bass weighed in at 2 lbs 10 oz. Definitely a fight on a medium light action spinning rod with 6 lb test. I have to say, the fish in this river and pond are the best fighters I have experienced in all my travels this year. 2nd bass was caught in Long Pond and weighed in at 2 lbs 15 oz. 3rd bass was nice one. Weighed in at 4 lbs 1oz. Caught on a KVD Caffeine Shad 5" swimbait.
This place is a great trip, providing you get there at the crack of dawn. Once the sun is up for a couple of hours, the pleasure kayakers come out of the woods and the peace and quiet is gone.
Oh, by the way, conversations between kayaks 200 yards away sound like they are sitting beside you on the water. Today, I learned that Marshall's is a good place to find stuff cheap, one lady would like a more comfortable kayak because the molded plastic seat makes her ass hurt, and a few things about their husbands. Thanks ladies, but I would have liked to enjoy my fishing Saturday listening to the frogs and birds and otters splashing......

I always wanted to check out Tully.I'm in Gardner,not far..Ha,I can relate,we used to tell the girls to keep quiet or you'll scare ALL the fish away.That tactic didn't last long,especially when the fish start hitting during the giggle fest.I'm set up for the Quabbin it is so restricted that it got to the point that hardly anyone goes out there.Last saturday at fishing area#2 I counted 7 personal boat trailers.was nearly vacant.
