"Get Hooked on New York"

Merrimack Smallies Details
Name:Merrimack Smallies
Created By:charliep
Details:Got to the Wotton St. ramp in Chelmsford for the first time today as the Pawtucketville BLVD. ramp was closed. It was busy at the ramp and busy on the water. I headed upstream toward Tyng's Island (the golf course) and saw some exposed rocks. Out with the trolling motor and I was able to position and anchor just below the outcropping. There was a nice rocky channel. I cast a Strike King Crawfish colored square bill and missed a nice fish. Second cast, same as the first. I peppered the area and no more interest in the hardbait. I switched to a gold vibrafox #2 and fish on the first cast. A small smallmouth. I threw the spinner in the same places that I cast the hardbait and ended up with 5 smallmouths the biggest at 17 inches and a nicely sized and colored sunfish. I am excited to get bck out there. Sorry for no photos, but I was fishing alone and just got caught up in things.
