I just got back from the Cape and wanted wanted to go fishing one last time before my vacation was officially over. After some bargaining with the wife we decided to go out for Sushi and then I would go fishing. The kicker was that I had to wake up with the kids on Sunday morning.
Dinner in itself was an event. First, my 1 year old son ate a huge chunk of Wasabi (not fun) then took out his revenge on the restaurant (Sapporo in Westborough, highly recommended) by covering it in Miso Soup and Sushi Rice. We are "that" family right now.
After a great meal I headed over to A1 and to my surprise the Boat Ramp was OPEN. I'm not sure if someone got fed up with the fence and ripped it down or more likely they opened up just the ramp area.
Got my kayak in quickly and was off. It was just a picture perfect evening.
I quickly had a 1.5lber and was off to a good start. I decided to switch to my Live Target Frog that I've been dying to catch a fish with. I've never caught a fish on this Frog despite numerous blow ups. I've only caught one fish on a frog ever and it was pretty small. One of my goals for this year is to do more frog fishing.
This is the first frog that I feel really comfortable with. I've tried a couple of other cheap frogs and for some reason this just seems to float well and rarely gets hung up. It could be that I'm getting better too.
I immediately get a small bite on the frog but not enough to set the hook. A little while later I see a huge blowup so I start casting to that area. About 3 casts in I finally get the bite I've been looking for and he crushes the Frog.
I wait a sec and set the hook. "Fish On" or more like "Human On" for my fish friend. I start reeling and instead of pulling the fish out of the pads he pulls me in. After a really nice fight I land my biggest of the season (3 lbs 12oz).
After catching a couple of other 1-2lb fish I call it a night. A successful night at that.
Sweet A-1 open nice job I'm shore bound for the most part but would like to just be able to fish the damn I also have another spot I like but small fishing area like to have a back up if they are not there.
The ranking score is used to determine how "popular" a trip or location is. It is calculated based off of a weighted average of the number of reviews and the user ratings. For example, a trip with 2 reviews and an average rating of 5 will have a lower "ranking score" than one with 10 reviews and an average rating of 4. This is because even though the first trip has a better average rating, it has not been reviewed as much as the second trip, so it is not as "popular". In the future we may modify the ranking score to take in additional factors, such as the number of views, comments, and photos.
