"Get Hooked on New York"

A Good Afternoon at Ashland Reservoir Details
Name:A Good Afternoon at Ashland Reservoir
Created By:frambrett
Details:This was my first time here and I did not have huge expectations given it was mid-afternoon, about 3 p.m., and I only had a few hours to fish.

But I set to working the shoreline in the southern end of the rez with a senko worm and started to hit pay dirt after a half hour or so. First a tiny 8" dink largemouth, then a nice 13 incher, an 11 incher, a 15" pickerel, and finally another 11" largemouth, plus I lost another one maybe a foot long just short of the kayak. Lots of other hits too. I think if I had been able to stay a few more hours until dusk it would have continued to be productive.

All in all a pretty good debut trip for me there. Nothing huge, but lots of fun and consistent action.

Good point, as long as the LMB dinks don't get gobbled by the pickerel, like this 15 incher that I caught.

But little guys turn into big guys at some point right? I have heard of the occasional big guy coming out of there.My thoughts: trout = big bass. This place gets stocked well. Them small trout plump up the bass nice!
