"Get Hooked on New York"

Charles River-Dedham Details
Name:Charles River-Dedham
Created By:biggz53
Details:Stopped off 109 in Dedham and went down to the bank of the Charles. Light rain, cloudy, comfortable temp. I started throwing a white double blade spinner and hit nothing for about 25 minutes. I throw out a senko and hit two small LMB. I decided to use a round jig head with a Havoc pit boss and bounce it across the river bottom....first cast hung up and my line eventually breaks. So I tie another on toss it out to the middle of the river. It feel it hit the bottom and feel the big thump, I set the hook and my rod bends over and this thing is diving in the bottom and what I think is wrapped up in weeds. Slowly dragging it in and it gets about 2 feet from the bank and I see the head of about a 12 pound snapping turtle. I was PISSED I thought I had a monster that got hung up. I got my long needle nose pliers and went to drag it out but he got his claw on the braid and frayed/snapped the line. So there goes jig head #2. I hook my last one and next cast catch about 1.5-2 lbs LMB. Switch over to a buzz bait and catch one about 2 feet off shore buzzing across the weed line. I send it back out that way and get another hit of something bigger but missed. At this point I get excited and sped my cast out there and wrapped the buzz bait around a low hanging branch.....lure number 3 gone haha. Rough day but at least it was productive and eventful for 2 hours of fishing
