"Get Hooked on New York"

Fishin Solo Details
Name:Fishin Solo
Created By:bcodkind
Details:Took the boat out by myself for the first time (I'm a big boy!) I chose Whitman's Pond because I'm familiar with the ramp and the pond. The aquatic vegetation there is incredibly thick and, despite the weedless prop, I had to stop about a half dozen times to clear weeds from the propeller. I was fishing jig because I wanted to practice. I did get a few hits off a shallow island (one of the "claws" on my craw got swallowed) but I wasn't hooking in to anything. I went to a white Senko and caught three LMB. I had to limp back to the ramp after my prop found some monofilament in the weeds and wrapped itself up. All in all a good day, but I won't be going back to Whitman's until vegetation starts to die out. I also have been trying an experiment....the last three times I've gone to Whitman's I've slow trolled a shallow bomber in green and yellow. I've caught yellow perch in the same place every time. They love that thing! I'll be getting a similar color pattern for ice jigging.

Nice report and what Shawn said. If you have pliers,I keep an all in one type thing in my bag, it is quick fix on the water.

Keep some pliers with your gear. I ran over my 15# fluro one day while clearing a birdsnest. The prop would barely turn. I unhooked it from the battery, pulled the motor into the boat, unscrewed the prop, pulled out like 10 feet of line and when I put the prop back on it was as good as new.
