"Get Hooked on New York"

First Time at Pratt Details
Name:First Time at Pratt
Created By:jjbagoose
Details:I had the opportunity to head out for a couple of hours Monday after work. I decided to check out Pratt Pond since I've driven by it many times but never fished there.

I launched and paddled my way past the Cemetery on the right. I started casting a bit towards the shore but then realized that it was packed with people shore fishing.

So I continued on until I was past the masses. Tucked away in the back there were lots of weeds and a little bit of structure to cast towards.

I started with the Frog and got a taker almost immediately. Unfortunately, I lost him pretty quickly. A little while later I got another fish to take the frog, got him all the way to the boat then he jumped. And all was lost.

Not feeling the frog anymore I switched rods to the trusty senko. After a couple of well placed casts I hook up with 3 fish in a short time period. All in the 1-2 lb range.

Since the sun was on it's way down I decided to move to the other side of the pond for one last hurrah. This area was super weedy/paddy, almost sludge-like.

I switched back to the frog and got a 2+ lber to smash the frog 5 feet from the boat. He swallowed the frog so I didn't lose that one.

Lesson of the day: Work on my hook setting skills with the Frog :)
