Bobby and I hadn't been out in awhile so we met up for a trip on Pond X in northern MA. We got a late start since as soon as we hit the water, the sky opened up with thunder, lightning, and a lot of rain. Better safe than sorry, we waited for it to pass.

Since we've never been this Pond X before, we did a lot of searching but it didn't take too long. We crushed them for awhile on buzzbaits, walking the frog, and cleaned up with texas rigged creature baits. I had a good one hit the buzzbait so hard it mangled the blades and wire. Another blew a hole in the front of the frog. It was nonstop fish and blowups for a few hours.

We then found a nice offshore weed bed and Bobby crushes two 5 pounders in a row on the spinnerbait! This weed bed was pretty much the only one in the place since there was definitely a weed kill. Green chemicals, chunk, slime, and dead weeds were everywhere.

Other than the slobs, we caught a bunch around 2.5-3 lbs, a lot of 2s and only 1 non keeper.
Most fish were off the bank in flooded brush. There were fish on any small stick, bush etc.

We tried hitting this same pattern on the bank where the wind was blowing and thought they'd be there, but they weren't. We think this was because the wind and waves were pushing all the chemicals down that way and you could see it cover the water and entire shoreline in those areas.

i meant too lazy to tie anything else on haha. the knot and line held up very well.

I lost a nice bass after not re tieing when I knew I should have, punching pads. Like you said Shawn, if you think it, DO IT! I learned the hard way.

I've learned my lesson the hard way. If I even think re-tie then I have to do it. Haven't lost a pig but I lost too many bb's when the line snapped on a cast

i didn't lay off the buzzbait. too lazy to re-tie. i kept throwing it in search of that 1 pig. once the bite died down the sporadic fish i got on it were quality.

I laid off the buzz boat as the weather cleared throwing texas rigs and once or twice sam had blow ups and id follow up and get the fish.
