"Get Hooked on New York"

The end of the rainbows Details
Name:The end of the rainbows
Created By:thorn168
Details:Tried to hook up with the stocked rainbows in Brookline res. I got some powerbait and rigged up a light weight c-rig on a single hook but I just ended up feeding the bait stealing fish.

I brought 2 rods one rigged up for the bait and wait and another for castings lures. This past Sunday was very warm sunny and windy. The water was very clear and the fishing pressure was remarkable. There where a lot of people fishing for trout with powerbait. The whole time I was there I did not see any one land a trout. However, on prior visits I did see other anglers catch their limit of fish in less them an hour using powerbait.

Between the fisherman, the predatory birds, bass and the pickerel I have a sinking feeling the the stocked fish are much depleted now.

I did get to fish with a young man who was fishing live worms for larry's. He had a 5' ultralight spinning combo with 4lb mono which feel is somewhat under powered for bass fishing. But he claimed he had caught some quality fish on his setup over at a privately stocked pond that he usually fishes at.

He ended up catching few blue gill and a 6 inch golden shiner.

The blue gills are now spawning so I think they where a factor in thwarting my efforts to catch a trout.

I caught 3 gills: One on a Thomas's buoyant, one on a green woolly bugger and one on a Berkeley honey worm. The gills where so aggressive that I almost caught one on a bomber A crankbait.

After I left Brookline a stopped by Bolloughs to try my luck before calling it a day...I almost got bit by the biggest snapping turtle I have ever seen. This thing was huge with a shell the size of a large frying pan and a head the size of a house cat. I am glad I did not hook up with him. I left there around sunset and went home.
