"Get Hooked on New York"

First ever trip to Wachusett Res. Details
Name:First ever trip to Wachusett Res.
Created By:themasterg
Details:I made my first ever trip out to Wachusett Reservoir on Friday. I woke up at 4:30am and met up with Muskie at the gas station off of 122 in Worcester. While I was following him to the fishing spot I got pulled over for having too much ice on my windshield haha. After dealing with that hiccup we made way to the spot. Got there are almost exactly 5am and were the first ones there. It was cold as a bastard for mid April and my fingers were just about numb by the time I finished rigging my gear.

We threw our lines out in the water and the waiting game began. After about 10 minutes a handful of other guys showed up (all of them were on MAFF as well hah). Muskie left the spot at 6am for work and then my buddy Levi met up with me. He set up and we waited. And waited. And waited. Around 8am I had my first hit. Set the hook right away and pulled in a 3 pound laker! My first fish from the Chu and my first ever laker! Now we were getting excited.

About an hour later I had another hit. This one was big. After a real good fight I hauled in an 8 pounder! The thing was a horse. It fought all the way up to the shoreline and didn't stop until it was on the stringer. I was worried my 15# leader wasn't going to hold up the abuse this guy put on it.

After several more hits but no fish we packed up around 11am. I brought my catch over to Jerry's Bait and Tackle in Milford to get it weighed. To make an already awesome day better, the 8 pounder qualified for a state pin!
