Metro west
7/8/2013

Hit one of my favorite metro west spots. Baits for the day turned out to be the frog, a texas rigged creature bait and my own home made swimbait. Started off with the frog in the pads and emerging coontail. Caught a few right off the bat then missed a few when the weeds were too thick for the bass to crash through to get the bait. On the 3rd miss I decided to tie on the creature and pitch into where the fish tried to get my frog..... Boom!! fish on. I retraced my steps and hit the spots where the other 2 fish did not get my frog and each time I caught those fish on the creature bait. This would turn out to be the pattern for the day. Fish the frog and catch some and miss some, when they missed I pitched in and more times then not, caught that fish. Most fish were in the 1.5 to 2lb range but I got 4 fish over 3lbs doing this as well. I came across a section of pads that formed a perfect LONG straight line on the drop. I cast parallel to it with my swimbait and on the 3rd cast, I was rewarded with the fish of the day, a chunky 5lb 2 oz bass, to date my biggest on my own swimbait.

Canalratt and I took advantage of the nice weather yesterday and headed out to a couple familiar places. Place #1 had the pads coming in nicely so we threw the frog..... A few swipes but no serious commitments. Switched over to the jig and pounded the shorelines. We got maybe a dozen bass here with Tony scoring the biggest bass of the day. A nice healthy 5.8lber. The jigs bites at pond 1 were light to say the least. Tony also scored a 4lber and our best 5 was probably 16+ lbs. We tried to get a swimbait bite going but could not get one. My swimbait reel broke about 20 minutes into throwing the big wood so that was the end of that for me.
We moved to pond #2 and stuck with what was working.... The jig. No biguns here but we made up for size with pure numbers. 30+ bass here in about 4 hours. Again the bite was light to start but then about an hour in they started either crushing the jig or picking it up and running out of the cover with it.

Cape and plymouth
10/26/2012

Took the day off today and headed to the Cape 1st then moved to Plymouth in the afternoon. We arrived at 8am at our #1 spot with high hopes. My buddy had fished here the week before and caught 18 bass in a half day with a 5 and three 4's in the mix. Flat, mirror like conditions greeted us. Not good!! We fished for 2 hours with only a couple HUGE pickerel for our efforts. Finally about 10:00 the wind started to come up. WE picked up our swimbaits and started chucking them on the drops..... still nothing. I decided to throw up super shallow and as soon as the bait crashed down it was crushed by a 4lber. AS I brought her to the both we look down and see a 6+ following behind the 4.... DOH!!! After a quick pic and release we dicided to check out the shallows. The wind was iffy at best. It would come and go. We make our way down this one shoreline and we see 8-10 bass all between 4 lbs and 6lbs just either sitting there or slowly cruising. We backed off the threw the kitchen sink at them...... Nothing We move around a point and my buddies spinnerbait gets slammed..... another HUGE pickerel......... nope an 8lb Pike!!!! What???? there are not supposed to be Pike in this pond. After we snap a few pics we continue fishing for another couple hours with only a few small keeper bass to show for our efforts.
At about 12 we decide to move off Cape to a Plymouth area puddle. this place is about 50 or 60 acres max. It has a mix of boulders and overhangs. Jigs were the bait of choice here. The wood was void of live but the boulders were holding some nice fish. I got a 5.25 and a 4.1 off the same boulder, just on opposite sides. My friend got a 3+ on another group of rocks and we caught 4-5 smaller bass all on jigs in the rocks before it started to get dark and we left. Total bass for the day was around a dozen with a 5+ two 4's and a couple of 3's in the mix..... Not bad at all!!! My budy has the pic of the Pike along with another bass pic on his phone. I will add them when I get them

South Shore
8/17/2012

Got out again with Jbiguns. We hit up a SS weed infested pond. Warm with a milky clear sky and 15mph winds SCREAMED swimbaits. Who are we to argue. Waking and cranking Slammers was the ticket today. Joe was throwing the 9" 1x Perch and I was throwing the 7" 2x dark trout. Caught a handfull of 1-2 lb bass early before the wind came up. As soon as it did I got my big fish. 5 3/4 lbs. She crushed it as soon as i started my retrieve. BIG head on her. We went shallow for a while thinking the fish might be under the pads but it was a no go. We were heading back tot he ramp ready to bail for pond #2 Joe was sitting and I stood up and started cranking the slammer. Joe says. Well if you are going to fish... so am I. He made one cast, the rod bent in half and he started to sing "I got lunker, I got lunker" and sure enough he did. but not before it burried him up in the coonage. Thought for sure she was goon either pull off of get off but Joe being the hog hunter that he is, got her free and into the waiting net. She was put on the scale and it was bouncing between 6.15 and 7.1 ended up settling on 7 even. Thats two 7's for Joeybiguns in 3 days. I know for a fact he has a couple of 6's and a 5 too just in this past week. The boy is on FIRE!!! Good job Joe and thanks again for the company. good times!!!

4 different ponds
8/14/2012

Got out with Jbiguns today for a 13 hour marathon recon mission. 4 ponds in all none of which either of us had ever fished. Fished Jigs, frogs and creature baits. Day started slow with absolutly NO wind at all, but we eventually got into them on frogs in pads. Missed more then we landed because the pads were SO thick but we connected with a bunch up to 3lbs. Moved to Pond #2. More pads, more fish on frogs and some on Jigs including the 5.8 on a frog in some pads near a downed tree. Pond #3 was a weed infested swill hole, but we hit it anyway. Joe's 1st flip to a weed edge with the creature bait and he sets the hook on a massive 7.2 lbs. I sa the fish come up and turn sideways and I told Joe...... BIG FISH!!! A few more fish here before we moved on to Pond #4 We frogged and jigged and threw creature baits. We get to one corner and Joe was working a weedline for what seemed like 5 minutes. I make a pitch in when he was moving on and I was rewarded with A solid 6.1lb beast of my own. 3 fish 18 3/4 lbs. Top 5 was 25lbs. Must have caught 30 between us Thanks Joe. Lots of laughs and 3 great fish!!

south shore slob shop
7/15/2012

My buddy and I headed to one of our super secret south shore slob shops. It did not dissapoint...... Well for my buddy. He best 3 fish went 18.1lbs including a 5.8 a 6 and a 6.9lber. The 6 was caught on a buzzbait on a weedline. The 5.8 and 6.9 were caught on texas rigged soft plastics. IN all we had a 25-30 fish day ( did not really count but thats a safe guess. Lots of 2-3 lb fish. Our best 5 was approaching 25lbs.

Charles River
7/11/2012

Hit up another section of the Charles for some afternoon frogging and jigging. Fished from 2pm till 6pm The fish were VERY active. They were again attacking the frog like there was no tomorrow. Got a few good ones on jigs in the trees as well. 25 fish in all most were in the 2-3lb ranger with a couple high 3's and a 4 + as the big fish. If you put the frog near a fish thy crushed it either on the cast or the 1st pop.

Hit up 2 different plymouth area ponds today. on the water at 6am and off at 2pm . Slow at Pond #1 (Island Pond) Got one small bass on the MS Slammer right off the bat and I thought it was going to be on. Went fishless for an hour then got a 2nd small slammer fish and one on the jig. Another fishless 45 mins and my final fish cam on a frog in some pads. That was it for Pond one. 4 fish in 4 hours... not good. Packed up and went to pond #2 Little Long Pond. Got a fish in the pads by the ramp right away on a jig then proceeded to pound the bushes with jig and toss the slammer out off shore. Picked up a few fish up tight on the jig and a couple more on a senko just off the bank. Came across a main lake point and threw the slammer out over it. 2 cranks of the handle and it got crushed by a 3lber. Tried to repete that on another point with no success so I went out deeper and threw the carolina rig. picked up a few small keepers before calling it a day at 2. ten fish at pond 2 in a little under 4 hours

Hit the Charles in my neck of the woods again . The frog bite was insane. They were crushing the frog if you put it anywhere near them. I also got fish on the jig and pig. Total fish for the day was 28 with a handful over 3lbs and a bunch over 2. No real slobs but 2's and 3's crashing the frog is still a blast.

Hit up Wenham pond today. Started out with top water and a slammer. My buddy got a couple on the buzzjet and I got the skunk on the slammer. Come up on a downed tree, flip in with my jig and I boat a solid 2+lber, next tree, same thing. WE move out and fish emerging pads off the banks with senkos and catch a dozen including a couple of 3's and a 4 before returning to the bank and fish the pads there with frogs. Caught my only picture fish of the day on a Live Target frog with a steady slow retrieve over the pads. She was a spawned out 5.1lber. The wind changed directions and started to blow HARD. My buddy switched up to a buzzbait and connected with a 1/2 dozen including one 4.8 lbs. We got some more frog fish before calling it a day at 2pm. 35+ fish with the best 5 approaching 20lbs.

Lost a really good one when she straighened out all the hooks on both trebles on my fresh water spro swimbait i was using. hahaha.

Went to Cobbossee several years back and had the best 5 fish limit of my life, all in a 1 hour window at the end of the day. We were staying at Lakeside motel and cottages and had fished the morning, cam in for lunch and went back out for the afternoon. It was about 4pm when we drove over a hump we did not know what there and it did not show up on the map. We turned around and dropped a marker on the top of it and then backed off into deeper water. Started to throw the carolina rig and on my 2nd cast I caught my avitar fish and my PB bass. She went 7.8lbs on the digi. A few casts later I had a 4lber on, a few more casts a 3+. Moved up to the marker and started casting out into 20' of water and hooked up with a 6.4lber and then about 20 minutes later the final fish of the limit at 5lbs. 5 fish for 26.6 lbs in about an hours time, all on the carolina rig.

Hit the Quabbin with my daughter and a friend. We drop shotted smallies in 30-55 feet of water. Most fish were caught by seeing them 1st on the eltronics then dropping down to them. watermelon black flake and green pumpkin straight tail worms did the trick.

Sandwich, ma
7/27/2011

I hit Lovells the other day in search of some quality LM. This pond has a HUGE alge bloom going on and the water looked pea green. I figured this would put the fish up tight and I was right. The pond is ringed with some great bushes. I got a total of 10 bass in the 2-3lb range skipping jigs in the bushes. If there was a fish there it was super aggresive. 3/4's of the time I would have a fish on before I coule even engage the reel. I came up to this one dock and I see what looks like a cross member under the dock in the water. I make that my target, skip the jig and to my suprise the "crossmember" swam off. This cross member ended up being a HUGE bass just sitting suspended under the dock. It did not even sniff my jig. man I wish that fish bit!!
