Details:Last Sunday I fished a charity kayak tournament at Neponset Reservoir in Foxboro, MA. Hosted by Collin Fiske and his Redneck Fishing Club, this was a winner-takes-half, three-fish limit tournament, with the remaining half going to a local food pantry.

Neponset Reservoir brings back a lot of great memories from my childhood, the biggest of which being that it was a fantastic fishery. That changed in the early 90s. Not sure what happened--pollution, over-fishing, no idea--but the lake went on a serious decline. I got out of the Air Force in 2003 and tried fishing Neponset a few times over the years, but could never manage anything over two pounds. So I stopped fishing there.

Then, last year, during a MA Fish Finder tournament, my father "weighed in" over 13 pounds of bass, which was pretty shocking to everyone else who fished the tournament. Second place had just under five pounds and, for third place, I had around four pounds. Most of us expected those kinds of low weights, but my father proved that, while it's still loaded with small fish, there are a lot of bigger fish in there (he caught a bunch of two- and three-pounders that day).

So I went into Sunday's tournament with the hope that I'd catch some bigger fish, but also with the expectation that it'd be a typical Neponset Res dinkfest. Both happened. I caught a ton of dinks under two pounds, plus four bigger fish, including a nice chunk over four pounds for the win. A pleasant surprise and a great day on the water. Fishing for a good cause is never a bad thing.

I also encountered for the first time ever freshwater jellyfish! Who knew they existed? Not this guy.
