"Get Hooked on New York"

Changing it Up at Chauncy Details
Name:Changing it Up at Chauncy
Created By:nefisherman92
Details:I HAVE been getting out up north lately, and have been catching quality bass as well. As usual for this time of year however, I'm so busy running back and forth between NH and work that I haven't had time to post.
In the meantime, I have been searching for a good "bass hole" to hit up after work. Whitehall is to busy this time of year, the Sud seems to have become a moving mudhole, and you couldn't pay me to go near Walden this time of year.
Chauncy is there however, so I decided to follow up on my trip last year and see what that has to offer. As it turns out, a lot!
I started out my afternoon trip tangling with pickerel. I hooked about 5, and managed to land three. 1-1.5 pounds I'd say was the average, but one that let be right as I was hauling him up looked to be pushing 2!
Someone started tubing around the lake though which seemed to kill that off though. I kept tossing my texas rig around and got a small bass out a little deeper.
I moved up the shore a but more and saw some splashes at the surface near where some other guys were fishing. I kept my distance from them, so I tossed a texas rig at the corner of a large weedbed and BAM, a nice bass about 2 3/4-3 hit it!
I hung around that area and fished until it got dark, during that time, something that felt kinda small whacked my texas rig. Turned out to be a decent size Hornpout!

Might need to make this a regular weekday stop from now on.
