Plymouth, MA

One last trip before another surgery on my left ankle. It has taken a beating over the years. My left ankle has been broken, my left calf has been shot....Time to call it quits I think. So, we went out fishing yesterday morning in a place in Plymouth that is known to Mike Carney quite well. First fish was on in teh darkness at about 0530 am. 4 lbs., 14 oz......my bigest smallie ever. On a GY Fat baby Craw, blue with black flakes. They are biting now. Caught 3 more, but all smaller than this one.

my buddies trip to DW yesterday. They caught a juvenile alligator. I think this deserves a state pin. They caught it on a green plastic frog bait., You can still see the bait in it's mouth.

I did not go fishing, well I kinda did, but just for lures at a deal that cannot be matched. I friend introduced me to this guy a year ago and he just got a load of more gear in. I just bought 18 lures, and an All Star Select, MH 6.6 baitcasting rod for $100.00 . Check out the pic, and if you are interested, you might want to meet up with him prior to this coming Saturday. He is having a huge fishing yard sale then and most everything will go I am sure. First come first serve people. I got what I 'needed'. :) he has gear bags, rods, reels, Rapalas, Spro, Lucky Craft, Heddon, etc. he bought a bunch of gear off a pro angler who retired. selling everything at least at 50% off! Check out the pic and u decide. I thought I'd be nice and share. His name is Rick, from Stoughton, reach him at 508-685-5969. Good luck!

Billington Sea
4/14/2011

A trip to Plymouth. Tried Great South first and got skunked. Nothing, not even a bite. We then went to Billington Sea pond and my first fish of the day and season was a largemouth, 4 lbs 7 oz. , on a Rapala, perch type. Caught 2 pickerel after that, and my buddy caught 3 small LM bass and 1 pickerel. First time there also. Not a bad place.

A return trip (by myself) to one of my favorite places..tough to get into unless u know how. Caught 14 largemouth bass into the boat, 2 pickerel; and one sunfish. The most unusual thing....check out one pick of a bass I caught. It was only about 12 inches, but look at either the bite marks or talon marks on it's belly. Pretty fresh marks I'd say also. Maybe an Osprey failed, or a huge pickerel? Baits used are also pictured.

A trip by myself to the Cape and a sleepover at my in laws house. This place was great. A total of 8 smallies and 1 largemouth bass. I used two rods and 12-14 lb test, with of course, my favorite smallie baits, Gary Yamomoto fat baby crawfish, 4", black with blue specks...see pics of the 2 that went home with me...I don't normally keep them, but I had to bring some fish home for the in-laws..( and the fish were great!) One big one took my line under the boar and to the other side, then spun me around 90 degrees before I lost it. I wish I could have just seen it. Oh well. Cartop only.

This place looked great on the map, with satellite view, and feedback from other members, so I had to try it. There are soe monster bass in there.....but hard to get out of the weeds if you don't paddle over them or scare them first. My largest out of only two fish in the boat was 3 lbs 5 oz., largemouth. I caught one on a purple paddle senko and the other on a GY 4" twin tail grub, watermelon color, with a split shot to bring it down quickly between the weeds. Funniest thing, when Mary and I were leaving, all these guys started showing up in their cars, by themselves. No fishing rods, no girlfriends or wives with them.......then the disco music, (yes disco), started getting cranked up and it became all too obvious at that point what was going on. We were leaving anyways....:)

Between using a Rebel crawfish lure and Gary Yamomoto Fat Baby Craws, I caught 9 smallmouth bass. The largest one landed was 3.7 lbs...and then there was the one that got away. "I'll be back!"

small fish, you would not like it at all. People, I meant to delet this post because I could not upload the picture of my buddies fish. I was being sarcastic, as his fish was between 6-7 lbs......I'll get a picture of it and post it. It was actually a pretty good pond.

A trip to Indian Pond. Lots of wildlife. After going through a pretty large 'puddle', the rear left brake locked after letting the truck sit for a few hours. Without reception and into the woods for what seemed forever, a local mechanic/fisherman arrived and helped free the brake. We made it home, but time to fix the damage now. Nice moose huh? Also caught 4 smallies.

I decided to take an afternoon trip to my favorite pond. It was really nice catching a bunch of fish, but nothing bigger than 1.5 lbs. I caught about 13 bass, a calico, 1 pickerel and missed a few. I tried out a new lure after reading about it via a Bass Pro Shops article...the lure is made by Heddon, and it is a Zara Spook, silver in color. The lure rocked! It was so awesome, first cast, first fish.....and so on for a while.....then I lost another right at the top, and u know how the lure comes flying back at u and just misses your face?...well, it did and it was because of 'the bottom treble hook came off!'....check out the pics......lucky I kept my receipt. I still like the lure.....was it made in the USA?........that was pitiful. That has never happened to me before.

Our first time into this lake. It was very nice with lots of smallmouth bass caught, in addition to this largemouth. I was right on top of a bass weighing approx. 6-8 lbs before I noticed it under me....I spooked it and no luck catching it. It was a great place to fish and I will be back there again. On a 1-10 scale, I'd give it an 8.

My biggest was 2.2 lbs, 2 bass, 1 pickerel, 2 perch, about 12 crappie and 7 sunfish....I'm going to have to start taking you all on trips to some freakish ponds....It was my pleasure guys...be safe!
