Details:This past Friday, I had to head up to New Hampshire to take the boater safety test at 6 PM. I figured I'd make a day of it, bring my kayak, and soak it in some nearby body of water. With a little help from Google Maps and a few kind folks online, I ventured to Turkey Pond in Concord. I only had about 3 1/2 hours to fish, but I was rewarded quite nicely.

I got on the water about 1 PM and, not knowing the pond, started fishing immediately. The place is "infested" with milfoil, according to the signs posted, and it was definitely thick near the launch. I tried punching the area, dragged the frog across the pads, but had no takers.

I worked the eastern shoreline for about an hour with nothing but a pickerel to show for it. So I moved out into deeper water, where there were scattered pads, and started tossing the SPRO BBZ-1 Rat. A few casts in I land a hefty slob that went 4lb 6oz. My first on the rat.

There are two ponds here, Turkey Pond and Little Turkey Pond, connected by a wide channel. I worked my way across the pond and into the channel, where I started flipping the weeds. There I caught a small one, about two pounds or so, on Bass Pro Shops Crack Craw. I continued to work the shoreline down the channel, flipping the Craw and slinging a spinnerbait. No takers.

About halfway down the channel, there was an isolated patch of weeds out into the channel. I flipped in there and--BOOM!--laid into a big girl that went 5lb 7oz.

I caught a few more smalls ones after that. I never made it into Little Turkey. Wish I had. I've heard it's got a lot of floating islands which hold some big ones. Maybe next time (whenever that may be).

All in all, it was a great few hours on a new body of water. (Definitely worth your time if you're up that way.) Check out the video below. It came out pretty cool. The 4-pounder absolutely SOAKED me!

357 Clinton Street, or thereabouts. If you're coming from 89, you'll see a dirt path on the right after you pass over the little river. The launch is down that path.

It is rocky, though, so be careful, especially if you're in a smaller car.

Great video! I especially like the slo-mo with the bass' face down in the water and the tails up splashing all over the place. How'd you do on the safety test?
