"Get Hooked on New York"

Lake Quinsigamond! (and my first big bass!) Details
Name:Lake Quinsigamond! (and my first big bass!)
Created By:esquila
Details:I'd been itching to go fishing since I hadn't for two weeks, and I convinced the partner to take us on a trip further west from Cambridge, all the way to Lake Quinsigamond. The day was beautiful--we arrived around 3:30. We walked a little way away from the public boat launch to find a decent shore spot.

For the first two hours or so, I couldn't get a bite on anything. Not a Senko, not a night crawler, nothing. But apparently patience is a virtue. Around 5 or so, I got my first bite of the day on a nightcrawler--my first ever big (relatively speaking) largemouth bass! I was beaming. Biggest fish I've ever caught in my life. (OK, it's not that big, but still! I was excited.) Shortly thereafter, I caught what I think was a tiny bluegill. And about an hour later, two small yellow perch in quick succession, all on nightcrawlers. Some day I will learn to fish with a lure like all of you, but today I will just be excited about my fish!
