SouthBay
8/12/2011 - 8/14/2011

BVBA tourny brought my Bass buddies and I to Whithall NY, the Birthplace of the US Navy, and some fine fishing on South Bay and the lowerstretch of Lake Champlain. 4 days were spent together for the enjoyment of food, drink, fishing and comraderie. Only a few of us had fished here before and we all looked forward to fishing new waters. This fishery offers a 4 lane state of the art launching facility and provides access to over 100 miles of fishing north to Canada, as well as access to the Hudson River via the locks, and can accomodate the canoeist to fish the shores of South Bay. Located in eastern Ny it is a rural slow paced get away spot to pursue the Largemouth bass.
I explored the lower strech of Champlain and found Red Rock Bay, a spot I returned to each day to start. Abudant bass and sheltered location with rock and wood along a 150 yard stretch at the base of a 200 ft ledge is what attracted me. First bass caught here was a 3 1/2 lber and I locked in too long here on Friday catching and releasing, as by Sunday I found the bass were on to me and I only was able to boat 2 bass. One of these days when prefishing I will learn to locate the bass, familerize myself with the spot and move on, keeping the catching to the tourny days that count. The Murky waters of this whole stretch of water are very silted and visibility ranges from a few inches to maby a foot so that noisy baits were the best of choice. I went with a white Nichols spinnerbait and trailer, and a Black red flake sidewinder worm with a rattle in its tail. The bass seemed to tune in and found these baits much quicker than the Senkos, witch I caught some good fish on, though it required repeated casting to spots. A black blue jig with rattles was also good in certain areas
Day one Saturday I boated 5 bass for a total of 10.22 lbs, and Sunday I only weighed in 3 bass of 7lbs giving me a 17 lb bag for the 2 day event which resulted in a 4th place finish and out of the money. Eddie with a 1st place total weight of 24 lbs probably secured the Mr Bass title for the Year, Brian took 2nd place with 22 lbs and lunkers both days of 5.7 and 4.25 lbs, and lee claimed 3rd with total weight of 17.55 lbs.

Baits that worked best for others were spinnerbait, jigs and frogs in the thicker cover to be found. Though I tossed the magnum spro I had and hooked up with some nice sized bass in the slop, I very shortly became unhooked and fustration set in as the only fish taken on a frog by me were some small pike.
On Sunday I did land 2 nice northerns on a spinnerbait in Red Rock that went 10 and 7lbs which were probably the high point of the trip giving me that heart pounding excitment when they hit the bait like a freight train. Another fish worth mentioning was the bowfin caught on Sunday in a cut along a thick blanket of cut weeds that collected along a shallow 2 ft shoreline. This being my 1st bowfin I thought I had lunker bass all wrapped up when after putting up a ferocious battle he came to net in all its uglyness and as I gazed down at its flattened tooth filled mouth I came back to earth,weigh it at 6 1/2 lbs released it and continued to search for the right species.

As always a great time was spent on this getaway with all my Bassin Buddies!

Winnisquam
9/9/2011 - 9/23/2011

Went away for a 2 week vacation to The shores of Winnisquam, a lake I have always enjoyed to fish, known for its 2-3 lb smallie population. My club also had a tourny scheduled there for the middle weekend so I thought I would get prepared for it. Long and the short of the 11 days on the water only resulted in 10 bass caught TOTAL! I stuggled from the start, trying to stay away from spots I knew and explored other areas I did more ruling out water then finding any new areas to fish. Only fish caught were nice uns, all 2-3 lbs, but what bothered me was the total absence of any smaller fish, with no short fish taken ( or even seen). What I did learn was that 9 of the bass were on weed , either the few lily type pads I could locate or in pockets of cabbage. 1 was caught in 3ft of water along a sandy shoreline. (appears that the same fish was in the exact same spot 4 days later for the tourny). Also deadsticking the senko is the only way I got bit on that bait, and the lizards were dragged verry slowly. I resorted to digging into my tackle using spinnerbaits, topwaters, frogs, cranks,swimbaits,dropshot, jigs,spidergrubs, tubes, all without any success, with all bass coming on c-rigged lizards and 6" senkos wacky style. Tourny day was a tough fish as well with no limits caught, I was able to score a win with 3 bass, a 2.75lber that took lunker, as well as a 2lb sm and a 2lb lm for just over 6 lbs total. Others had 1 or 2 smaller fish and goose eggs were numerous.
Great weeks spent with my bride and a very relaxing vacation was had on a lake that is usually a lot better then I found it to be.

Whitehall

Couldn't mow the grass, too wet so went to Whitehall from 930 -1230. No bass taken scored 2 small pics and had a big Pic blow up on my frog out of the thick stuff. Was a slash and dasher though and did not hang around. Water still clear, though the level is down about a foot from August.

Whitins Pond Whitinsville Ma.
8/16/2011

On the way to Walmart to pick up a few groceries (without the Bride) I stopped by the causeway at Whitins Pond and fished the culverts and channels fro 12:30 - 2:00 pm. Scored 8 bass, no biguns, but only 2 shorts and the others went 1 - 1 3/4 lb. The trusted wacky bk/bl senko got everyone. All fish taken hanging along strong current flow from the recent 2" of rain we got. All were in 4-8 foot depths just waiting for something to eat come their way.

Whitehall Hopkinton Ma.
8/6/2011

Went out to Whitehall as a Bday present to myself from 5:30-10 am. Whitehall presented me with 4 bass in typical Whitehall sizing, of the 10- 11 inch variety. Did catch one 14 incher as big fish of the day. Water still up, and clear, with the weeds not as bad in the past few years. Not a toothy was caught! Pounded with spinnerbait, frogs and swimbaits, but only fish and bites came on the trusted dark colored senko, rigged both wacky and texas. Went on to catch some fried clams, and work on my figure.

Lake Chauncy Westboro
7/31/2011

A return to Chauncy this weekend for a few hrs. (5-8:30 am) resulted in just one more Bass, a 4 1/2 lber that slammed my Zman pop frog very early. He took the bait then took my boat and spun it around before I landed him. Again this was the only fish caught, as I had only 2 other hits that netted nothing. Very slow fishing as it was dead calm and the sun came up real bright and sent the bass to heavy cover. I stopped by Westboro Res. and picked up a 13" Lm off shore on a c-rigged lizard on the way home to complete my days fish catching.

Lake Chauncy
7/23/2011

Morning trip to Chauncy was cut short by Lightning storms. Fished from 6:00am - 8:30 am. Very slow only had 5 bites, missed 3 and landed 2. A typical 11 incher and a 5 lber that grabbed a texas rigged senko at the north end of the lake at the edge of lily pads. Woulda stayed longer but did not like the electrically charged air.

Pawtuckaway lake N.H.
7/16/2011

Club tourny at Pawtuckaway lake on a bright Sunny July Day Started out extremely slow as my partner Lee and I did not so much as have a tap or anything for the first 2 hrs. We did not get too desperate until 10 am and with no keepers we moved into a small northern cove with a dam. A slight current and the deeper water of a channel leading to the out flow provided us with 8 keepers all in the 2lb range. My fish were caught on texas senkos and a sidewinder worm. Lee's on a Spro frog and wacky senko. By Noon feeling a little more confident we traveled around to deeper water spots in the southern end of the lake, carolina rigged, jigged, and cranked with not a bite to show for our efforts. With 2 hrs left we returned to the 100 yard strech where our other keepers had come from. We found some short bass biting and I was able to catch a coupla more 2lbers to make up a bag of 9.7 lbs, Lee could not come up with that 5th keeper and went to the scales with a bag of about 5 lbs. Matt who stayed up in the Shallows and stuck to his spro frog pattern, came in with big bag of 11.1 lbs for 1st place, I took second, Brian came in 3rd with 9 lbs. Air temps got up to 90 and the water in the shallows was 79-81 degrees. This is a beautiful lake to fish, and usually gives up lms in the 5lb range and even has smallies as a bonus. Dont understand the slow concentrated bite as we were in a tailing full moon cycle, our baits were screaming eat me! and we chucked and cranked continuously. Go Fish!

Whitehall
7/10/2011

Tried Whitehall again, but went from 5-8:30 pm for a change as I dont get out eves cause of my work shift. Pleasantly surprised to find the Bass still biting and scored 13 Lms, 10 keepers and only 3 shorts. Usually at Whitehall its the other way. Best fish came off a 5 ft drop along a middle island right at sunset. A 3 lber, 2 2s, and the other keepers were 1 1/4 - 1 1/2 in size. Wacky senkos and zman frog were baits put to use with the senko getting most of the fish. Heavy weeds were targeted and thats where they seemed to prefer with all the traffic on the water. Oh yea, even got a pic, wonder where they have all gone.

Whitehall, Hopkinton ma.
7/4/2011

4th of July found me once again at Whitehall. Spent the morning 8 - 1 pm on the water with Debbe, and found the bass biting early, and larger than the usual 8 -10 inch size. 10 bass were caught, with keepers numbering 6 of those 10 and went 3, 2 1/4, 1 3/4, and the others in the 1 lb size. All bigger fish came in shoreline shade on the east side in 2 - 3 ft of water taking wacky Senkos and Fin-s baits. Key was the shade as nothing of keeper size was taken in the sunny spots, or later as the sun got up overhead. It is of note to mention that not one Pic was had or seen today, hmmm. Great time spent with my Honey. Started getting parched and burnt by 1 pm, and opted to split and rustle up some burgers and a few brewskys.

Lake Winthrop
6/25/2011

Am trip to Winthrop w/ Joe. Cold front came in w/ thunder early keeping us close to the ramp, and overcast never really cleared out. Air temps 55 - 60. Bass bite extremely slow, pics were active. Joe scored 6 bass, maybe 1 was a keeper. I caught 4, one 14 incher, and big fish of the last 5 years for me, a 8lber with a mouth so big I could put both my hands into it! Sorry did not bring any electronics camera phone ect so no pics. This cow was buried in some of the thickest milfoil and coontail. She took my Zman leopard frog rigged w/ a 6/0 gami hook, as it was just sitting on top of the slop while I was untangling a backlash. Realizing my line was moving off to the side I set the hook and to my delight felt her weight. The thick weeds tired her out quick and the 65lb braid and my frog rod brought her in. This made the average day fishing a great one! Needless to say the rest of the morning I allowed for a little extra time with bait sitting in between casts but I had no other mentionable takers.

Lake Ripple
6/20/2011

Day off, went fishing with the Bride for the morning. Construction at the ramp for the A-1 site kept us off that body of water, so a change of venue brought us to Ripple. Construction there prevented us from access to more than 1/2 the lake, as 3/4 of a mile of baffle dam was being position to prevent erosion problems. Kinda late as the high school construction was already well under way. Scored 3 Lms and 3 pics, all on a Yum frog rigged w/ a Gami 6/0 hook. Bites were slow, fish seemed upset with all the activity? All fish came out from shore in channel.

Lake Monomonac

BVBA Tourny rescheduled from E. Brimfield because of all the damage from the Tornados. The ramp is closed there and the Army Corps will not let boats on the water for a while. Permit was had for Monomonac and off we went. Tough day for me and Jarad. The constant rain and cold temps bummed us out and the bites we got were far and few between. Air temp 55 with water temp at 72 had mist on the water. I manage 2 bass a 12 and a 14 incher, while Jarad dropped a 3 lber at the boat around 12 noon, and did not have a fish till 2:32 when he landed a 3 1/2 lb Lm, that slammed his wacky senko off a drop on a point. Al must have gone to some other lake as he was one of two with 5 fish bags. His 5lber anchored his win with a total weight of 12.6 Lbs, Eddie had 5 for 9.3 Lbs, and Jarads 3 1/2 lber got him 3rd place. Great job guys! Though he felt beaten down most of the day, and swore to be a fair weather fisherman in the future, Jarad kept chuckin and winding and his persistence did get a pay off!

Winona lake N.H.
6/4/2011

Wrapping up week vacation Bro Joe and I pounded the shores of Winona in meredith / ctr harbor N.H. Beautiful day to be out fishing as it was 70 degrees and with no wind and bright sun I got toasted to a crisp despite my 50 block lotion. 40- 45 bass were caught of both species with most being smallies in the 1 1/2 -2 lb range. 7 largies caught 1 -2 lbers the norm with biggest smallie going 3 1/4 and a vicious Lgm going 3 1/2lbs. Fishing was tough for bro Joe as he was a little reluctant to change over from his beloved wacky 5 in. Senko, wich the bass of Winona were not too crazy about. Joe saw that I was catching 5 for his 1 on a texas rigged 4 inch version of senko and soon came over to the texas side.High point of outing was getting up to 40 ft away from a Blk bear cub as ravage a lakefront bird feeder. He was really quite cool to see and was not bothered by our presence as he went about his feeding business for about 10 min. before he departed for another bird feeding station. We made a complete tour around this 150 acre lake using just the trolling motor and wrapped up a week away in fine bass fishing style. Now to return home, mow the lawn and return to work, so as to be able to replenish the deminished stock of senkos ect.

Squam Lake N.H.
5/28/2011 - 6/3/2011

Week vacation with Bro Joe and I resulted in many sore mouthed Smallies and even a half dozen Largies. Beautiful calm overcast conditions greeted us for the first 3 days and weather got quite a bit windier as days went on. Water temps ranged from 54 to 72. We witnessed smallies just starting to mate and found some bedding bass but concluded that this years spawn was not at all organized around any time table as we believe to be catching pre, post, and spawning smallies. Largies were cruising and eating, spawn to follow. 25 -30 fish days were the norm with one day of a coldfront left us running around wondering where they were. Biggest smallies were in the 3lb range largemouths 2 -3 lbs. Many were caught! Off shore rock piles shoals and marker bouys provided the bigger fish. a few nice ones had up tight along shore bedding. Baits with best results were mini spidergrubs, lizards on a 1/4 oz carolina rig, and any color wacky rigged senko. It was cool seeing the Bald Eagle out on Little Loon Is. This trip was a great time getting away with my Brother and we found Squam to be back up to full pool and the bass active unlike my last trip Sept. 2010.

Club tourny, overcast calm day 55- 68 degrees, with water temps 58 -63. Frog fishing was not working for me or my partner John K. Few fish chased or boiled up on these baits this week and the few that did nipped at the legs and failed to hook up. after a coupla hrs of that and no keepers to show for our efforts we resumed to fish shorelines on the main lake on the east side. Many small bass, rock and a coupla smallies were taken, with keeper largemouths hard to find.Best baits for me were a sidewinder worm water/red w/a 3/0 gami hook and rattle in the tail, as well as a kietech blk spidergrob w/a 1/16 jig head. 4 five fish limits caught by club, and everyone had something to weigh in. Fish averaged a pound and Eddies bag of 5.7 lbs took first, my bag of 5.5 lbs for 2nd, and Matts bag of 5.2 lbs for 3rd. Lunker for day was 1.85 lber. Great day on the water with our clubs newest member John K., as there was lots of bites and comfortable conditions.

Pre fished for club tourny next Sat. Tried different techniques and areas of lake as I have never done very well here, except for an occasional shopping cart or two. 5:30 -11:30 am, water temp 58-60, air temp52 -70 degrees with a light gusting breeze. Caught 10 bass, 5 keepers went about 8 1/2 lbs, 5 shorts. 2 big pics caught a 24 and a 20 incher. 3 bigger fish came on a Yum frog rigged with a 5/0 Gami hook in 1-2 ft depths where lilypads were emerging. Smaller fish came on senkos and 4" powerworms on outside edges and tight to shore. Lake is appearing to be overrun with rock bass ( useless fishegg sucking scavengers ). These fish are detrimental to any fishery. I recommend bringing a 5 gallon bucket to fill up and feed your garden with.

1st club tourny of season. Overcast day temps 40s to low 60's, with water temp 58 -63. Went right to the horseshoe and spent 1 1/2 hrs with nothing but shorts. High dark water was extremely tough to see beds, but spent the time there thinking the spawn was well under way. next shot over to the bayou down the creek. saw many 3-4lb bass jumping in the incredibly thick brush cover, but way to thick to cast into. Another 1 1/2 hr wasted. Fished various spots along the west shoreline as the wind settled down a little bit. Caught 11 short bass, 12 frying pan size calicos ( 2lb + size!), and one keeper 3lber. At weigh in found 1st place to go to Al who Stayed in the Horseshoe all day, 2nd place to eddie, who caught 3 3lbers in the bayou early, and 3rd place to Jarrod who also hung in the Horseshoe. Seems as though I had the right places in mind, but not the patience to hang in there on either spots.

Fished Bare Hill with Bro Joe 6:30 - 2:30. What a day! 70s No wind, blue bird skies and lots of bass to be had. I caught 15 shorts 2 2lbers and a 3 1/2. I missed at least a 1/2 dozen hits from good fish though and on one I missed a real hog, as I set on him, did not budge him and he peeled some line on me before spitting it out! Joe Caught 20 shorts and had a 2 1/4 lb fish for his big boy. Bro's fish all came on a Wacky 5" senko, my fish came on a 3 1/2 Kietech spider grub and 1/8 oz weedless head. Have to find a new style head as I beleive the single fiber guard was the factor for a lot of the lost fish, preventing a good hookset. Great day spent with my Brother!

Easter trip to North resulted in a total of 3 Lms. Fished 6-11 am with a foggy start. Very few bites with water dead calm and very clear. 1st bass 1 3/4 lb caught on a Bk/Bl wacky senko on rock in 2 ft of water. Other 2 were also relating to rock in skinny water but went for a Bk/Bl chompers spidergrub rigged on a 1/8 oz head. Missed 1/2 dozen bites in deeper water at 5-6 ft when wind came up later. Temps were 52 -70 degrees, with the water 48 -51, and the wind grew up to 15 mph gusts. Time to go get some Ham!

4 hr early venture to do a boat check found everything ready to go other than a Lowrance unit. With time on my side I proceeded to fish. Results ended in a single Lm that came tight off a piece of submerged wood. He grabbed a Bk/Bl senko rigged wacky that was not touched till it hit bottom and the bite was ever so light, if not for the sensitivty of the Cumara rod, I would have been fishless. Temp 41-52 degrees water 47 - 50 degrees wind picked up to 20mph made feeling bites tough.
