Your not supposed to fish Foss, but hey, people do what your "not supposed to" all the time. I'm sure Foss has amazing lunkers since there is no fishing pressure. Sorta like Great Pond in Randolph, its drinking water, many signs that say no fishing, but I've heard of 5lbs smallies in there too.
Yes the Chu is legendary for smallies but I live 5 minutes from the Sud and have been pleasantly surprised earlier in year with some nice 3lb smallies but ever since they closed dam back up and slowed the flow smallies seem to be further out than I can cast at least the big ones few small ones here and there but the Larry's have stayed consistent we just have less shore line to fish from have to move around a little more.
if you want smallmouth the best local place is wachusett res in clinton,boylston lots of smallmouth average 2-4 pds. ii would be happy to show you some spots if you`d want to go my problem is i need a ride lost liscense
Yeah I had never been so as soon as I saw access I pulled off the road not knowing where I was heading. I work out of Framingham a couple days a week so I am going to try and get out there a few more times the next few weeks...Id love to pull a Smallie out, haven't caught one in years.
There are a couple of us on here that have been killing it there. There are some BIG fish swimming in there. We have a couple of spots that are producing 3-6lbers on avg, not to mention all the smallies and good size pickerel we are catching.
I think the trick with this place is finding the spots where the water is lower than normal and hitting those. However, in the past few weeks that water level has been on the rise so those spots are not going to be accessible for much longer.
Yeah, first time I ever fished there. Heard of it on the board. I used a black and yellow buzz bait and had 3 hits, but couldnt get it set. Action was pretty good overall, cant complain for a Thursday night.
The ranking score is used to determine how "popular" a trip or location is. It is calculated based off of a weighted average of the number of reviews and the user ratings. For example, a trip with 2 reviews and an average rating of 5 will have a lower "ranking score" than one with 10 reviews and an average rating of 4. This is because even though the first trip has a better average rating, it has not been reviewed as much as the second trip, so it is not as "popular". In the future we may modify the ranking score to take in additional factors, such as the number of views, comments, and photos.
