Details:I stopped by Menotomy Rocks Park in Arlington on the way home from work to enjoy the weather a bit. After a quick walk around Hills Pond and seeing many bass (mostly very small, but at least one good sized) in the clear shallow water, I grabbed my rod to see what I could find. Lots of small bass here, I did not even see a single species other than largemouth. Not sure what they eat, maybe frogs. Maybe that's why they are so small. I caught 3 dinks and had numerous little bites. A guy there said there is a five pounder in there that he caught twice (not big enough for two five pounders!). I didn't see it.

It's a nice park with some lawns, picnic tables, playground, and good shore access. A good place to take kids to learn to fish for bass. I think I'll take my son here when he gets older. Not recommended if you're looking for a lunker...

Menotomy Rocks is *the* place for a child's first fishing trip. With shiners we caught a little bass on each cast. There's a playground within sight of the pond for when the kid gets restless, too.
