Foster Pond
7/6/2011

My buddy and I got off to an early start this morning. We hit the water around 6am and started catching fish soon after. Most of the fish were between 1-2 pounds with a 4.06 Larry for my buddy at the end of the day. We probably caught 20 or so LMB's and pickerel. A real nice day considering the sun and lack of clouds. They were tight to cover and killing the lizard. This was the first time at this pond for both of us.

Boston Harbor
6/23/2011

As some of you know, Darren and I like to fish. Darren's boat was being a bit tempermental this season and not starting. After doing some work on it we got it running in his driveway on Tuesday and made a plan to fish on Thursday (last night June 23rd). Even tho it was raining and crappy the weather report for Boston harbor wasn't too bad so we decided to go. Right when we launched the boat wouldn't start. Since we had just done it Tuesday we had it running in no time. We cruised out to our spot at Deer Island. When we got there, we encountered 2-4 foot swells. For those of you that don't know, that's pretty big when your in an 18 foot boat. Our first reaction was to get the f*** out of there. We should have listened to ourselves but we didn't. Instead we said let's give it a shot. We anchored up and right away I get a hit. My line breaks. WTF? This is brand new 20 pound test braided line. The same stuff I always use. D catches a fish. We didn't weigh it or measure it but it was a good fish. I hook up and break off again. WTF? That's 2 lures. The first one I just bought for 8 bucks that day. I broke off one more time before switching rods and adding a leader to help offset the strain on the line. D catches another fish. I hook up 2 more times but lose both fish. Meanwhile a couple of waves have crashed over the back of the boat and it's filling up with water faster than the bilge can pump it out. We agree that we should move the boat a little ways down where it wasn't as rough. The motor won't start. We take off the cover and give the starter a few taps with a wrench. It cranks then stops...cranks then stops. The whole time waves are crashing over the back. As we are giving it another crank, the nut on top of the assembly fly's off and into the water. we are all done. We pull up the anchor and set the boat adrift in hopes that it will turn sideways to the waves. It did. D calls 911 as I continue to bail. The 911 dispatcher connects D to the harbor master (Boston police) and they conference in Sea-tow. Sea tow cost's $300 an hour from the time the guy gets in his boat. What else can we do? Do you take Amex? Yes. Ok come get us. Sea tow wants the cc number. I'm standing in water over my ankles inside a boat and I have to dig out my wallet so D can read him the number and you know what my first thought is????? Don't drop the coach. Can you believe that s***? So the Boston police boat shows up and ties us off to wait for sea-tow. Have I mentioned that for the first time in forever I'm feeling seasick? No I didn't. The whole time that we are out there, my stomach was doing flips. Once we tied up to the police boat we really started rocking. I'm proud to say I didn't blow chunks. So sea tow shows up, hooks us up to his boat with a long rope and tows us back to the ramp. We put the boat on the trailer and head home. I'll admit I was scared but neither of us ever panicked. When I woke up this morning I had a feeling somewhere between lucky to be alive and stupid for not turning back when we should have. If anyone would like to kick in for that tow bill donations are accepted (just kidding) So once again D and I are right on the edge without going over. Anybody out on the ocean regularly might wanna get a sea tow membership for 169 a year. It could cost a ton without it. Lucky we were close to the launch.

Oldham Pond Pembroke, Ma.
5/12/2011

Took a ride down to Pembroke after work yesterday to check out Oldham Pond since I'd never been there before. Of course it was windy as hell. Went straight across to the big island to get out of the wind but had no luck there. Moved over to the shoreline and was casting a Rapala 7-11' crankbait. My buddy was throwing the sexy shad lipless crank. He hooked up with the first fish. A 13 inch LMB. His 2nd was a good size perch. My first fish was a giant crappie. I've never caught one even close to that size. Darren caught another perch and I caught a white perch. The wind was blowing us all over the place. I'm thinking about getting a wind sock (my boat's a cartopper). If anyone uses one or has any experience with one any reviews or remarks are appreciated. The last fish of the day was a LMB that was 13-14 inches. All in all it wasn't a bad 3 hours and now I know where the lake is. See you guys back there on the 22nd.

Billiington Sea Plymouth, Ma
4/30/2011

I've never been to this lake before so I decided to check it out today to be prepared for next weeks tournament. The weather looked good this morning. I was a little worried about the 7-8 trucks and trailers parked when I arrived around 6:30. I guess there was a bass club there. (at least that's what someone told me). Anyway, I was on the water by about 6:45 and had my 1st fish by 7:15. I thought "it's gonna be a great day". I caught 3 more fish by 10 but the wind had kicked up pretty good and shut off the bite. I hope none of you are offended that I fished there today. I should have asked here if that would bug anyone but honestly didn't even think of it till tonight. I did check around online and it appears practicing a week before is ok.

Forest Lake Methuen, Ma
4/18/2011

Got out of work a little early. Met my Buddy and went to Forest Lake. After throwing some spinners and crankbaits for a little bit and sick of fighting the wind, we ended up just trolling around for a little bit. I ended up with a couple of rainbow's and a perch
