"Get Hooked on New York"

Details:Today I was reminded why I still go back to Spy Pond. I took my 3-year-old son out around 1 pm for a cruise in the kayak (without gear) and located a few new spots that looked promising. When he got tired and Mommy took him home for his nap, I headed back out to see what I could come up with. Spy was more active today than it has been since early May, once you find the fish. I caught more 8-13 inchers than I cared to count, in a couple areas pulling a bass in on every other cast of the 4" Senko (many, many dinks, to the point of being a nuisance since they were ripping up my Senkos). I switched to a 5" Senko and moved around and a few more 10-12 inchers then hooked into my biggest pull from Spy of the year. I was only lightly equipped, and wished when I got the hook into this guy that I had bothered to put fresh line on (let alone something stronger than 6# mono...), but I fought it out and eventually got him to the kayak (should have brought a net, too, in retrospect...). No scale with me, but in length he was about 21", and very healthy looking. He did not appear to have suffered much from the recent weed treatments, nor did he appear to have been caught recently, either. Caught a few more after that and picked up a good sunburn. The dinks were deep in the "cover" Spy has to offer, the bigger boys on the edge of it, usually in the shade, where available. Overall a great day...
