"Get Hooked on New York"

Putnamville Resevoir Details
Name:Putnamville Resevoir
Created By:jcallery89
Details:Started the morning with a quick trip to Dick's Sporting Goods to get a new rod for my fiancee. Couldn't help but pick up a nice new Ugly Stick and Abu Garcia reel. Well, $181 later (Senkos, rooster tails, hooks, weeeee), we started the day at the Putnamville Resevoir in Danvers.

I parked where there's a little dam along the wall in the Northeast corner. Tossed my line in since I had a black/pink senko on my line from another trip, and I had to get my fiancee's rod all setup. In typical fishing-luck fashion, I'm just about to tie a hook onto my fiancee's rod and I see my rod getting tugged at (about 5 mins after I casted). Set the hook and had a really nice fight since I casted pretty far. Very nice smallmouth, about 2 lbs, little beer gut on the girl, must be a Freshman at Salem State. Needless to say, stayed there for about 2 hours and didn't get a single bite after that.

There is a runoff channel where the dam is, which I assume controls the water level. I saw about 2-3 different bass swimming around there in the shallows. One of them was a monster and would get spooked when I tried jigging for it. Those fish weren't biting anything, worms, jigs, rooster tail. If I had a piece of bread I would've tried that too.

Seems like everytime I cast a senko and just let it sit for 3-5 minutes, I get a lot of fish that way. I'm starting to think that I should have a 2-rod setup when shore fishing. One rod to soak a senko, and another with a rooster tail or spinner so I can cover lots of water. We'll see how that technique pans out next weekend.
