"Get Hooked on New York"

Manchuag Details
Created By:johnnywad
Details:Week long stay at the Hawk cabin on the western shore of Lake Manchaug was just what the Doctor ordered for a real relaxing vacation with Deb. Bass were caught on every outing and though no monsters were caught, it was a delight to have the boat in the water and ready to go in a moments notice. Big fish of the week was a 3 1/2 lb Lm and most fish were in the 2 - 2 1/4 lb size. Some SM were caught but were only 10 -12 inchers. Best Bait was found to be a 6 inch watermelon red zoom lizard rigged w/ a peged mojo weight fished 3 -8 ft deep on or near rocks. Weed growth here is down, due to the winter draw down. There is a new post I noted at the ramp for honor system launch fee, 6$ for Ma. Res, and 12$ for out of staters.
Highlight of the week was catching double 1 1/2 lbers with my fisherwomen!

Ahhhh, good ol' Lake Manchaug...I bet we could come with a story for almost every type of fish in there! From skin diving to find the horn pout holes, and using them for crawfish bait for the smallies and HUGE perch the next day...I'd give up alot to relive those days as an adult!

Still has a healthy population of bass. The surprising thing with your comment on pike, I look back and do not recall a pickeral even being seen. We stayed at a small log cabin near the Lake Manchaug campground.

I grew up on Manchaug, Some of the greatest fishing I had as a Kid was there, would love to fish it again. Looks like you were down in Sandborns They still got Pike and Tigers in that places?
