I started this day off at 4:30am getting up from my place in Attleboro and heading to "The Beave" in Franklin for some fishing. As I got there I was expecting that I would only get "at most" a 2.5 pounder or such (thats what I usually get at this place). Not THIS morning. I paddled around and got into 11 bass. 3 pounds 3 ounces at biggest bass, 3 pounds was the second best. The others were 2 and less. Fun as hell anyways. I will be back here as I have learned from a guy at my gym who grew up here that there are in face certified 8 pound bass that have been caught in the ice (not sure in summer water) over the years. I would have a heart attack. Was a great day.
The the afternoon I went to a smaller pond in Central Mass and boy was I happy at what I got. This place at most I think is about 20 acres. Again, I usually get smaller 2 pound bass here. Again, NOT today. 4 pounds 4 ounces for the biggest bass in the afternoon.
Wow, you don't really know a pond until you fished it INCH by INCH. Found a little spot around some pads that all the huge bass sit around.
@ MrsDano There are no weeds like 5 to 10 feet from every part of the shore, so boats with trolling motors will be fine. @Jlev, depending on where your coming from: The Beaver Pond Recreation Area is located on Beaver Street in Franklin, MA adjacent to Beaver Pond. Pull into the parking lot (you will see a parking booth on the right as your turning in. As long as your early enough (I go there at 5am) you wont have to deal with the people in the booth. Stay right in the parking lot and all the way at the end of the lot to the left is the boat ramp... Have fun. I heard there are 8 pounders here but all I got was a 3 pound 3 ouncer at best.
The ranking score is used to determine how "popular" a trip or location is. It is calculated based off of a weighted average of the number of reviews and the user ratings. For example, a trip with 2 reviews and an average rating of 5 will have a lower "ranking score" than one with 10 reviews and an average rating of 4. This is because even though the first trip has a better average rating, it has not been reviewed as much as the second trip, so it is not as "popular". In the future we may modify the ranking score to take in additional factors, such as the number of views, comments, and photos.
