Details:Only had a half day at work today, so I decided to head out somewhere new in Western MA. A friend of mine lives in Granby so I decided Aldrich Lake would be my choice (after making her drive there and take pictures to determine if I could launch by myself which I could).

I had no idea anything about the water and my stupid fish finder stopped working so I couldn't even get water temps or depth. I made my way over to a small section of the lake where someone from MAFF had a trip pinged there a few years back.

Began circling the edges, looked around 1-3' of water. I got to tree lay down and my jig was smashed, ended up being a 3lb11oz. Two casts later on the same tree I got another, this one just looked a lot bigger and scarred the crap outta me by decided to swim around the trolling motor, thank god for braid. Lipped it and got excited at the size. Being the picture creeper I am, I asked some random 13 year old kid to take a picture of me with it, being my new personal best. It was a 4lb12oz pig.

Nothing else besides a few stupid slime darts, but overall a good 2 hours of a day learning some new waters.
