Whitmans Pond, Weymouth, MA
3/13/2016

Caught my personal best Largemouth and a suspending jerkbait. Problem is I had no scale or measuring tape. Please check out the pics and help me decide how big it was. As reference I am 5'11" and 220 lbs. Oh and try to ignore the stupid look on my face as I struggled to get the fish in the shot. 😕

Tight lines all!

Annual Father/Son trip. What we lacked in quantity we made up in quality!

Son caught his PB LM 4LBs.

Love fishing on a typical workday. There is no better thing.

I love working on the South Shore! There are quite a few options to make a quick lunch trip.

The post spawn bite has been very hot.

Just 2 small largemouth no more that a LB or 2, but still fun to catch.

Gotta watch your step with all the goose droppings everywhere here though!

2015 continues to be a very good year. Took a quick lunchtime trip to Whitman's Pond in Weymouth and fished the lilypads right next to the boat ramp catching a pair of largemouth bass in about 1/2 hour.

Got a nice Bass Thumb developing after my 3rd 4LBer in a week!

South Shore
Tried a new pond on Saturday with my son and retried one solo on Sunday that I had got skunked on previously. Lots of action but not a lot of boated fish.

I was 2 for 9 landing fish on Saturday catching two of the biggest Pickerel I've ever caught. I snapped my 8 LB line twice on awesome fights and another pickerel severed my 30 LB braid.

On Sunday I caught two huge Largemouth. Both on Wacky rigs, my new favorite go to. I forgot to hit record and got no pics of the first one and my battery ran out as I landed the second. Both were 19 or more inches and 4LBs plus.

A real good weekend.

Furnace Pond, Pembroke, MA

My son and I made up for a miserable attempted trip on my birthday last Friday. We hit Furnace Pond in Pembroke and were not disappointed. Just one 2Lb Bass but the Perch and Calicos were very active. Colin caught a huge slab that was over a LB and put up a great fight on his ultra light rod.

Fished Hobarts Pond in Whitman at lunch. It was raw and drizzly, but they were a-biting! Caught two small 1lbers and one that was about 2.5lbs. My biggest hookup got off the line(it was probably 3+lbs).

Finally caught some fish with my new fly rod, using an olive wooly bugger. A good sized pickerel and two yellow perch. There wasn't much wind to affect my casts, so I was able to get the fly's right where I wanted them.

My son and I trekked into the woods to a new puddle that I had scoped out on Google Maps. I had a LM on a spinner bait earlier in the week but it got off the hook. Today my brand new KVD square bill landed a 4 LBer!

Jacobs Pond, MA

Caught a small Yellow Perch on a double drop shot with Berkley white grubs. They are putting in a new dock and a bridge to the island. Had to fish down the path in a new spot I've never used before.

I always get grief for using grippers or gloves, but in my defense I fish at lunch time and can't go back to the office reeking of fish.

It was a wonderfully crappie day. Man they were hungry! Caught 4 Crappie in a matter of 30 minutes in the small outlet to forge pond. They put up some good fights on my light rod.

Had a half hour to kill at lunch time today. The fish were very active at Jacobs. Caught a nice 13 inch LMB and a pickerel that luckily fell of the hook as I lifted it out of the water.

My faith in my ability to catch big fish is restored! After a lengthy period of catching nothing but small stuff (including a cute little 6 inch LMB), I finally caught a nice pair of largemouths at Jacobs Pond during lunch today. I had been a little too stubborn to change up baits recently I think. Berkley Gulp Alive worms had been great earlier this year, but I figured since the weeds are starting to thin out at Jacobs I'd give my top water Rebel Pop-R (which I hadn't used since May) a try. It was a good decision.

My son and I hit a new pond for us on Sunday at 4:30 and had a very productive 2.5 hours. My son got things started as we approached the island. He was trolling a Panther Martin inline spinner and hooked up a fish that we haven't caught before.

From my research on the internet and a book, I'm calling it a White Perch. I'd love to hear from the MA Fish Finder community to confirm or refute my ID on the fish. Check out the pictures.

He caught two that were 9" and 10" and I caught two that were 14" and 8". I don't think they are smallmouths, not enough fight and no leaps. All of the other smallmouths we've ever caught made at least one leap and fought like crazy to throw their hooks.

Took the family to Sunday River for a quick vacation and rented a "deluxe" fishing boat for the day on Lake Kezar. The boat frankly was not deluxe by any definition of the word, but we gutted it out and had a lot of fun. Lots of bites by all but I was the only one to land a fish. A single very feisty 1LB SMB. You know what they say about a bad day of fishing...
