Spoffard lake,NH
9/20/2014

Heading to Spoffard next year instead on anual cobbossee trip. So i went up to browse before next year.
I tried deep for smallies for a bit then it gor real windy and i figured i would try something more comfortable for me to fish (my jig). I motored shallower and started pitching a jig under structure. BAM! it didnt take long before i got some feedback and i pulled up a huge bass!
most likely one of the biggest i've ever caught. But no scale in boat to confirm. Note to self: Take damn scale out of ice fishing box or buy a second!
Anyway,we will se what next season brings there.

New job, no time this year,Bla Bla Bla. I'm trying to hit the CT river again in the fall until early December. My cousin (sardine hunter) and I hit the river 11/3. Hoping the smaillies are down south we hit a spot I had luck on last fall.
2nd cast I feel a tick in 30' water.Set hook and for a moment couldn't tell if I was snagged! I quickly realized I wasn't and thought it would be a good idea to get the net. I HAVE A TANK SMALLIE ON!
UM NO! I have a huge walleye!
whatever! that's cool seen I only caught 1 in my life. Later on we hit another area and I had a 2nd hit. #2 walleye! WTF I want smallies,lol
So anyways I had a great day hanging with my cousin and some good dinner as well.HA
Note: I have no idea how big the walleye was but I measured the little one because I think 15" is minimum?
The small one was 16-17". Not sure how big walleye get but the other was a good one!

Lake Cobbosseecantee,maine
5/18/2013

Only 3 of us made the trip this year. We did have a couple phone calls inquiring how we are doing from our buds that wished they were with us.
My good friend and self proclaimed CT legend (all in fun) had 3 good days of fishing.Finding smallies and large mouth.
My best fish cam on my jigs. Jerk-baits didn't get a bite except a pike. I did score a new x-rap floating nearby on an errant cast from the legend! Those are often.HAHAHAHAHA!
What a great guy to fish with though! We had a nickel bet for anything that we could think of. Next fish,no fish how many and if we would catch a fish before we made it to the next spot! I ended up winning it while fishing but then bet my wife wouldn't have the lawn mowed by the time we got home. I was wrong! He let her know about the bet too! damn guy! LOL!
All in all a great time and we still never made it to another lake as we say we will every year!

Winni
5/5/2013

Headed out to Winni last Friday for 3 days of fishing.
We arrived at 7:30 am and launched by 7:45. Check in and unpacking could wait!
We hit the 1st spot with 30'water going up to a flat and chunked jerkbaits. We instantly caught smallies in the 2lb range. Wondering if a blade bait would work i threw in 30'.
Bam! I'm like dude this isnt a smallie! I land my 1st lake trout (on accident). Ehh! it worked,Back to jerkbaiting.
We quickly noticed when we hooked 1 smallie a wolf pack would follow. It was awesome. I'd pitch my jig and gulp,hook set and fish on!
My buddy got 2 sets of doubles and landed 1 of them. I never seen that for real before.
Day 2 not so easy & day 3 was pretty good as well in the am. My biggest large was 3.25 and sm was 2.77.
That was my 1st trip to winni but not my last!

Quaboag pond,Ma
1/5/2013

Muskie contacted me last week and wanted to hit the boag.
I wasn't ready but i said yes,I'M IN!
We met at 6am on the ramp and i said where we going?
They looked at me ? . lol
Hmm, i'm quickly thinking they have not had a plan and thought i did.lol
So we went to a good spot considering none of us wanted to make the trek to my favorite spot on this trip.
6:15 am we started walking out. NOTE: i lived near this lake 1975-1990. During the early years my father responded to a few calls of sleds going thru ice in dark (they did not make it). We were fishing the same spot. Open water nearby. Mind you we weren't being stupid because i fish there often and have fished right next to open water and the ice is thick enough. So anyway we walked and drilled test holes every 50'. Muskiesbrother did the work. We found 3-5" ice fairly easy except where snow drifts were. That was 2". But that was 1 spot.
We made a safe walk to our area in the dark and set-up our tilts.
8:30am Bam! 1st flag on muskiesbrother tilt. we make the mad dash while trying not to land on our heads and he feels the line,Sets the hook and pulls in #1 fish for day.
A 1lb bass. it's a start and were not skunked!
9:05 2nd flag! Muskiebigfish is running! NOTHING! Hit n run.
9:20am Boag Hog is on! We run over and line is not moving. I wait, Then i slowly lift tilt and set on ice and lightly touch line. She's running! The line spooling and i decide to set the hook a few seconds later. Snap!!!
What ever it was cut my 75lb titanium leader like butter!
Nothing but a story :)
none the less we packed up at 10:15 is as agreed and headed to other activities we each had planned prior.
In closing i wanted to say thanks to maff i met 2 great guys. I never met these guys prior to this trip. I had a great time and enjoyed listening to their cool fishing stories. I will definitely be hanging out on land,boat or ice with these guys again sometime.

December 2nd on Ct River

Barton cove Ct River
12/2/2012

My friend who has never caught a smallie ever and i headed to the river yesterday. We arrived at 8am air temp 34 degrees. The driveway down to this private ramp is a good 25-30 degree descent (only 2nd trip here so i forgot about descent). Not bad if it's dry! Imagine a full size truck with 20' boat heading down a ice descent with 100' drop on the side. That area wasn't bad. But the parking lot prior to the water was all ice! We didn't get in trouble but i could have gone bad quick! The weight of the truck and boat just slid on its own. i used 4x4 lo 1st gear to idle into parking lot.After that was over we idled to our 1st spot and started drop shotting. Another boat said they caught 3 and headed home. We stayed there for another 45 minutes. I had 2 bites but no fish. My buddy was getting the feeling of a skunk.
I had one more spot i heard about from my friend. So we idled over. Mind you the fog was very thick and never lifted. So we knew there was possibly 3 other boats on the water. It wasnt dangerous but we couldn't see 100 yards to tell if they were on the spot. When we got near 2 boats showed through the fog. The were near the area i had in mind. I stopped 100 yards or so shy of them and found 40' water with bait-fish. It was soon game on for me! then another shortly after. I told my buddy to give me his rod so i could tie on a blad bait for him and he might catch his 1st smallie. 15 minutes later we get a double! Mine 2lb ish his 4.24! He went from freezing and feeling like a skunk to hero! His 1st smallie and it was a pig! Mission complete!
Shortly after i caught my 1st walleye! What a great few hours on the water! We ended with 9 smallies and 2 walleye
A few 1st and a good way to finish 2012!

Bartons cove Erving
11/18/2012

25 degrees at 7am maybe 45 degrees by 2,No wind made it a beautiful day.
Barton s cove ramp is closed,But a friend of mine has a private ramp nearby and received permission to launch.
2 other boats arrived around the same time. we all congregated in the same area. You could hit the next guy if we wanted. but it was awesome we all talked and watched as someone caught a smallie. I took the early lead with 3-0 but by days end i had 7-12 my buddy has the feel for em. The fish seemed hunkered down in 40' water and the bite was a ever so slight tick or mush. lets just say hook sets are free.Being on your toes and expecting a bite every cast was the way to go!
My friend has a titanium tipped drop-shot rod that is sick!
I can't find one of them but I'll be i will be gearing up with the most sensitive rod i feel i can afford,lol
Greta day, i learned more about the river and i must say i might have gone skunked if it wasn't for a good friend willing to share some knowledge. Can't wait to go again!

Quacumquasit pond
10/8/2012

I finally got back out Sunday at 1:30. This is one of my 1st trips solo. It was quiet light,variable wind slightly overcast.
I started throwing a jerkbait and found one shallow along with 5 pickerel along the way. Trout where literally jumping completely out of the water. I switched to a Zara spook when it started raining but no takers. This lake doesn't have much good visible structure but when i did come across a decent piece i flipped my jig with decent success. Later i tried deeper water cranking and a spinnerbait but the bite died or i couldn't find em.
But 5 keepers in 2hrs plus watching a eagle catch his dinner too i guess i shouldn't complain.

Lake Cobbosseecantee,maine
8/5/2012 - 8/8/2012

I have been going to Lake Cobbossecantee Maine for about 6yrs now and my wife and youngest son have not made the trip. So i took them up for a few days to see if this is something they like. We mostly fished for pan-fish on the dock and pleasure boated out to picnic rock and the rope swing. But i manged a 2hr solo trip before breakfast to a spot i have confidence in. 6am and the was calm and the lake was quiet. So i threw a super spook and 3 cast later bam a nice 2lber attacked my lure. Then my friend who cam on the trip woke up and asked where i was. FISHING! What else would i be doing. lol
So i motor back to get him and the sun was increasingly rising faster than i wanted but i threw the spook again when i returned. Bam, A 3lber hit. I also caught one more small one before i returned to cook breakfast. But all in all we had a phenomenal time. My family loved it and wants to go back for a week next time!
Even though i still have the urge too FISH! I loved it!

Another great trip. we had a few people back out but as always we had a great time.
The 1st night it was windy and just stopped raining.My buddy and i cruised to the Northern end to see what we could find out of the wind. We found a quiet cove that is sometime not accessible unless the water level is high enough. So i started throwing my Boag Hog Jig and got slammed on a nice lone piece of wood. We had a decent night to start the weekend.
The next day was real windy as well. I threw a jerk-bait most of the time.Scoring a smallies with a pike in the mix.
I realized most of the fish were scattered and in a staging position so i had the best results throwing a boag hog tube jig/bhb jig and jerkbait in 5-8' water. My buddies like to throw senkos and found some nice fish as well on isolated cover.
I didn't add all the photos but we averaged 20+ fish a day. I can't wait to go back. I hope to try a different lake next time.

This season my friend told me about a place where he caught 5lbers on 2 consecutive trips. I finally had the chance to take my kids and their grandmother here.This place looks awesome for canoes and kayaks. We all headed down the way casting at everything in sight. My oldest son(11) was tired of fighting the wind so he found excitement chasing a beaver.So his grandmother followed.My 7 yr old and i continued down the way and he caught the first fish(pickerel). He relentlessly casted at anything and everything. i was just trying to position the canoe mostly. We made it around the corner and met up with my son and his grandmother. While talking about how nice the place is for recreation i casted next to a stump. I felt a tick, then it was game on! When i landed her she looked to be a 4 lber? I made another cast to same spot. Tick, and another ok fish in the 2lb range. I said geese guys you might want to cast a line here,lol. On the 3rd cast and 3rd fish in 5 minutes they decided maybe that was a good idea. I said lets just fish this little stretch before we head home. I caught a few more and let the kids reel em in. We all enjoyed this place and i definitely will give this place a try when hard-water arrives.

Long lake,Maine
8/5/2011 - 8/13/2011

I Just got back from vacation. I went to Maine with one game plan and ended up learning that it wouldn't work. I did learn a little but i didn't have alot of time to experiment to much. After fishing with my cousin (Sardine hunter) and getting my but kicked by his jig/ grub combo. I became a fast learner and turned the tables on his next venture with me. While i only landed 2 decent fish and a dozen short ones i did catch a nice 4lb smallie that gave a nice fight and ended up being probably the biggest smallies my cousin has ever seen? This is my 3rd 4lb + small mouth ever. I learned a little and can't wait to fish again!!!

My buddy and i wanted to do some night fishing Friday night.
We went to quaboag pond around 7:45. I cruised across the lake to a weedy area that i like to start at. We fan casted without any sign of life for a bit continuously moving. Shortly after i threw my chartreuse buzz-bait of a point i had my 1st bass. Next cast SNAP! i lost my lure. So i tied on my 2nd buzz-bait. SNAP! WTF! Now i had to borrow a black buzz-bait from my buddy. SO we continued around the corner and the action was minimal. So we decided to try and make it to S. pond under the bridge. We couldn't fit so i just decided to fish my way back out. Immediately i had a decent fish but i couldn't see where it was and he went right and i thought it was going left. She came off! 2 cast later a swirl and game on again! I couldn't tell the weight i think it was swimming at me then she almost yanked the rod outa my hand. It turned out to be a nice 4.12 large mouth! We made a move to the ramp and decided shortly after 10:30 it was time to head home. Not a ton of fish caught but we managed 3 fish weighing 7.32 lbs.

5/12/2011 - 5/15/2011

We made another trip to Maine. I had intentions of traveling to different lakes while there but my fuel pump broke 1st, then my momentary on/off switch broke on trolling motor. So we made the best of it and fish the upper part of cobbossee. I figure seen the water temps were 55 deg they would still be pre- spawn. So the jerk-bait bite worked best.My son caught the first fish on a french fry then unfortunately he didn't have luck after that. I lost a monster large mouth (6lbs +"? ) after a battle he won. Then i proceeded to catch 3 pike,not big ones but i managed not to loose my jerk- bait. it was the toughest trip I've seen yet. But i managed we managed to catch some fish and enjoy the weather.

My fishing partner/co-worker stop over at a pond next to our work on lunches. He just bought a frog and he usually throws that. He has caught a few fish there ranging from 8 inches to 18 inches. So we got there today and i said let's stop in a different spot.Figuring I'd have a more comfortable place to sit. lol I hear the splash and what looks o be a 4lber turned out to be more like a 6lber 23inches long! What a great way to gain 6lbs on lunch!!!!

I took my ten year old son on his first out of state fishing trip.He caught the first large mouth of the trip and his first smallie ever. While my buddy's are happy beating the bank i found some better fish just a little deeper. The quantity bait was a black senko. The quality fish came from a tube. My son already asked when he can go fishing again! We had a great trip.
