Details:Life's complicated. So this was my first trip of 2010. I went to Spy Pond for an hour and a half while the kid and his Mom and friends were playing in the park for the morning. The water was reasonably clear, and the lake fairly free of weeds after last years purge. They have killed the reeds that were growing around the island and the east shore. The wind was strong, so I fished just west of the island for a while. I had a decent bass on a senko, but he spit the hook. Then I saw a fellow kayak fisherman catch a good sized "pickerel". I later spoke with him, and let him know that I had never seen a pickerel in Spy Pond before, but I had heard that there are tiger musky there... I didn't see it close, though... Anyway, after that I headed over to the south side of the island along the dead reeds and picked up a couple of good sized bass (maybe 13-15 inches--it's in my plan to buy a scale this year... but weighing them just isn't as much fun as catching them!). The bass looked healthy, so overall I think Spy Pond is not lost from the weed killing last year. And I am curious about this "pickerel" my fellow kayaker caught...
