Eau de Crawfish

This morning I woke up a little early, and hit the local pond for an hour before getting ready for work.

Inspired by shawneramone's skills with a baitcaster and armed with some advice from him about casting them, I decided to use mine.

I tied on a weighted Texas rigged craw, and sprayed it with Crawfish Berkley Gulp! Alive! Attractant.

Stupidly, I was facing into the wind, and now had a face full of crawfish scent.

After a few casts, I hooked into a good sized largemouth. It stripped my drag a few times. When I had it almost to shore it jumped and spit the hook. In my head I could hear Muskie saying keep your rod tip up.

Oh well, there are other bass in the pond.

I hooked up with another dink largemouth, but it spit the hook pretty quickly.

All, in all it was a pleasant way to start the day.

It made me realize how fortunate I am to have this forum. Not only have I received good advice online, but I've been fortunate to fish with other members.

Aem1031 got me started throwing senkos over a year ago, and got me setup for fishing the Chu.

Muskie coached me through landing my first smallmouth.

Shawneramone inspired me to pick the baitcaster backup, and gave me some tips on making it work for me.

On top of that I've enjoyed fishing and laughing with these guys. Muskiesbrother and Shawneramone are particularly funny fellows.

Thanks everyone. Sorry if I left anyone out.

Breakfast with Larry and the Dink

Millpond, Maynard, MA

Ok, I have to admit Larry was only an average bass, but he looked like a lunker compared to the dink I caught first.

This morning, I woke up early and did a little fishing at the local pond (Millpond in Maynard). I fished for a little over an hour, and caught two fish. Not a bad way to start the day.

I caught both fish with a 3.75" Yamamoto Watermelon with Black Flake Baby Craw on a 1/8 oz Boag Hog Baits round jig head.

Out Fished by A 4 Year Old with A Spiderman Fishing Pole

Mill Pond, Maynard, MA

This morning my 4 year old son and I picked up some Dunkies and headed down to the local pond (Mill Pond) for an hour.

I baited up his spiderman fishing pole, and put a 3" chigger craw on mine.

About a half hour later he found an orange pro senko in my tackle bag, and wanted to fish it. Not expecting him to catch anything, I just threaded it on the #4 bait hook already on his line, and left the #4 split shot on above it.

Low and behold I cast it out for him, and a fish hits it. I figured it must be a bluegill, but it's putting up quite a fight on the Spiderman fishing pole.

It was a nice Largemouth.

He was absolutely thrilled, and I was so happy too.

After we take a picture and release the fish, I re-rig his pole and try to duplicate this, but was unable to do so.

All in all, a great way to start the day with my son.

Charles River Monster Cannibal Crappie

Nahanton Park, Newton, MA

At lunch today, I went down to Nahanton Park, in Newton, to fish the Charles under the bridge.

I fished for 45 minutes with no luck on senkos or crankbaits.

As my lunch hour would be over soon, I tied on a 2” Strom Wildeye Live Crappie, from a pack my wife bought a couple months ago. We had fished them multiple times without a bite, but I thought I would give it a try.

Low and behold, on my second cast, I caught something. When I got it to shore, I was surprised to see a really big black crappie. It had not only taken the bait, it had inhaled the whole thing.

Unfortunately, while I was fumbling for my iPhone it jumped the hook and escaped (I had removed the bottom treble so it would not get caught on the rocks.

I was tickled pink, by catching a really big crappie, by catching something on a swim bait, and how the fish inhaled it.

Good fishing,

Charles River under Nahanton Street Bridge

Nahanton Park, Newton, MA

I stopped into Nahanton Park this morning for about 45 minutes before work. I fished under the Nahanton Street Bridge.

I got a lot of bites, I landed one decent size largemouth bass.

The space is tight under the bridge and there a lot of trees, but I found I could pitch the bait by the pillars and avoid the trees (after getting caught in the trees several times.)

I need to go back when I have more time, maybe I'll rent a canoe for 2 or 3 hours next time.

Finally Caught Something at Sudbury River Boat Ramp

Sudbury River, MA

This is the 4th time I fished the Sudbury River Boat Ramp off of Rt 20. The first 3 times I was skunked.

I fished for about an hour before work. This time I had a decent largemouth on a firetiger Rapala floating minnow, but I lost it.

Then I caught a second largemouth on a Texas rigged 3" watermelon Senko with black and red flake fished split shot.

I was fishing on the south side of the bridge. The current's moving there, and there seems to be better cover.

Charles River at Norumbega Park II

Charles River, Newton, MA

The wife and I fished Norumbega Park this afternoon for a couple hours.

She caught a large bluegill on a 1/8 oz Phoebe rainbow spoon. I caught a keeper largemouth on a 3" Slim Watermelon Senko with black and red flakes, fished drop shot.

While we only caught two fish, we had a good time.

To get to this spot:
- turn off Commonwealth Ave. onto Islington Road.
- Go to the end of Islington Road and there will be places to park on Islington Park.
- Go to the end of the river path.
- At the end of river path, there will be places to fish on the bank on the left.

Things to know about this spot:
- The bank is can be a bit steep and there a lot of roots.
- There are also many trees, with a few openings. I find my 5' ft rod handier here than my 6'6" rod.

Good Fishing!

Charles River at Nahanton Park

Nahanton Park, Newton, MA

Today, I was going a bit nuts at work, so I decided to hit Nahanton Park Park in Newton, to do some fishing at the Charles on my lunch hour.

I found a nice little open area past the dock. I only caught two fish. One big bluegill on a Heddon Tiny Torpedo (Baby Bass), and a small largemouth on a 3" watermelon senko with red and black flecks.

I also did a little scouting, there's access to the area under the bridge, I'm going to try fishing that next time.

Charles River at Norumbega Park

Charles River, Newton, MA

I got up early this morning to do some fishing before work. Wanting to try out a new spot, I went to Norumbega Park in Netwon to fish the Charles.

I found a spot on by the path where one can launch kayaks. I spent about an hour fishing without any success.

I tried a buzz-bait, a spinner, an inline spinner, and top water propeller lure without a nibble.

I switched to a Texas rigged 3" Watermelon senko with black and red flakes, and fished it split shot. I started to get bites.

I ended up landing one largemouth that was probably a little over 12 inches.

All in all, I enjoyed myself, and will return for some before work fishing.

I think I need to witch from mono to braid, I may have had a better sense of when to set the hook.
