"Get Hooked on New York"

Fosters Pond sequel Details
Name:Fosters Pond sequel
Created By:fishingwithkids
Details:Where: Fosters Pond, shoreline
Time: early am

The kids and I put in a couple hours again, including the "hike" to get there. Andover resident are very protective of their land, "Private Property" & "No Trespassing" signs abound. The are numerous trails though once you find a place to park (mine is unorthodox but it works).

So, we used pretty much everything in our tackle box inventory (i.e. spinner baits, rooster tails, etc.). It was an ok day, lots of Pickerel, and a few small Bass and a ton of Crappie. However, our trip is not the story...

We packed up around 10am, many fish, nothing "big", but fun nonetheless. As we were leaving, a little 2-man boat floated into near the cove where we were at. BOOM! Even from my bad eyes, one of the guys landed a 4-5 pounder, with the audible "Holy $H!T" along with it.

I was hoping those guys post here, but kudos to them for landing it. Fosters Pond is still one of my all time favorites, as aside from the fish, it's quiet and plenty of wildlife abound as you fish.

Well, I drove to fosters pond today and I couldn't find a place to park and fish? Like you said everything says private prop/ no trespassing. Where did you park and go? I drove around the whole place twice, alot of peoples driveways and no parking on the road.

If you want all the crappie you can handle, and don't mind live bait, use small minnows. Otherwise, we caught a lot off of small Mepps spinners (so many my daughter claimed we were catching the same one over-and-over).

This is only for Fosters mind you, and you don't need a boat to fish there. However, as the vegetation grows, your options will be limited as it gets really thick in the coves.

Thats a lil far south for me since im up in Lowell, MA. I dont have a boat either. What do you guys use for bait for crappies? Any places up north good for them?
