Details:Being bored with our usual fishing locations and looking to expand our horizons, me and my buddy Nick decided to go try out Milford Pond. Having lived in Milford for my whole life I've never fished this lake mostly due to the fact that its literally almost 100% weeds. However I've heard stories of it holding some monsters so we made the decision to try it out. Both of us live on the back side of Louisa Lake and figured we'd paddle accross the lake, portage the canoe over the street and down the bike path, and slip it in at the first sight of water.

What a mistake. The grueling sun and 85 degree temps were horrid. What we anticipated to be a 10 minute endeavor took more like 40 and by the time we got the boat off the land and back into the water we were dripping in sweat.

Now we have to find a fishable area but to our dismay we put in at what appeared to be a never ending maze of cattails and tall grass. After 30 minutes of meandering through this crap we hit open (realative term since it was a field of lilly pads) water.

Our first spot was on top of a pile of lillys where there was actual open water. After a hour, nothing. We moved into a back cove and hooked up with our first fish. Couple small one pounders. We headed out to the mouth of a brook that feeds into the lake. Hooked up with three largemouths in a 5 minute span. All of them being about 2.5lbs. Not too shabby.

Heading back into shore I tossed a worm at a brush pile and caught a solid 3 pounder which would be the best fish of the day.

Overall not a bad time out. 4 hours, 8 fish between me and Nick, and a pair of outrageous sunburns.

Great job, I just stopped by there yesterday with my brother and said there's not to much time left to fish here. Pads are taking over.

There were a few areas where is was actually surprisingly deep, like maybe 8 or 9 feet. Most of the pond, probably two thirds of it, is between 1 and 2 feet

I fished a similar kind of place yesterday. They were all in the grass. We were getting them on crankbaits and Topwaters.
