"Get Hooked on New York"

Massasoit limit bassin' Details
Name:Massasoit limit bassin'
Created By:tony93
Details:I've been doing really well at Massasoit State Park this year... which is my first year fishing there, as we moved to Middleboro in January. No monsters caught here, but it's been fun. I got there on Wednesday about 10:30am and fished at Lake Rico first for about an hour, getting only 1 hit on a chartreuse/white Stanley Bull Ribbit frog in the pads, but not hooking him. After baking in the direct sun, I decide to see if they opened the gates to allow people to drive back to Big Bear Hole Pond... they haven't been opening them due to low personnel, and it's too far for me to walk back there. YES! They opened em. I get my pass for my car(I was the only one so far that day!) and head on back... It's now almost noon so I go for something that can get in/out the thick weeds - like the recent 'hot summer bassin'' threads in the forum, you need to go deeper(which I can't as a shore angler) or go thicker(weeds, that is). Out comes the Strike King Shim-E-Stick(their version of the Senko) and the fun begins! I land 2 larry's on that, rigged weightless tex-posed, and a 3rd on a smaller wacky-rigged 4" Yamamoto Senko. I also lose 2 more when they come unbuttoned during the fight. The spot peters out so I head for the thick lily pads - flipping the Shim-E-Stick into pad gaps pays off with a 4th larry, about a 2 pounder - nice one! I fix my bait, make another cast, and nail #5 on the very next cast!! This rocks! A few casts later a toothy critter bites my bait in half under the pads... and my phone rings at 1:05pm - time to pick up my wife from work. What a day!
