"Get Hooked on New York"

Ames Pond Rebuttal Details
Name:Ames Pond Rebuttal
Created By:jcallery89
Details:So I gave this spot a 3/5 stars, and thought I would swing by on my way home today. Was itchin' to test out my new rig, so I tossed on a watermelon/orange-red w/copper flake Senko rigged Texas style and headed down the trail.

Usually fished the Rt.133 side of this pond with very little luck, but this time I tried to find a trail around the back. Found a trail and went around the southern end of the pond and fished a few shallow areas. Few bites but I think it was a little too shallow for your hefty Larrys.

I moved a little bit further down the trail and casted about 20 yards out. Tons of milfoil in the area, so I would tug at the line until it felt free of the weeds and I let it sit. Typically, I only catch bass when I let the worm sit, and if I reel it in, a Pickerel usually comes along and bites at it.

With the worm sitting there, I saw the line so tight and my new Ugly Stick is the shizznizzle and I was able to feel a really light, but unmistakable tug. Set the hook as if Bill Dance was watching and the fight began. Hooked a nice 3lb larry, pic doesn't do it justice as I was trying to balance on a tiny rock, hold my rod and the fish, while taking a pic.

Stayed at that spot for another 45 mins and caught another 2lb'er on the retrieve. Will be returning to this spot for sure!
