Indian Head River

Indian Head River

the Indian Head River is the main tributary and pretty much the beginning of the north river.

I launched out of Indian head/luddhams ford in Hanover a few weeks ago (public cartopper drop @ 42.099323, -70.818579) and went down the river almost to where the rt53/139 bridge is in Pembroke. Tide was high and going out, water was warm and pretty clear with a visibility around 3-4’. Its definitely a tidal river but the water up that end is much more fresh than salt. With the tide as high as it was the water was at least 7-9’ in most areas, deep spots being maybe about 15’?. Had luck on a 6” black with blue fleck havoc ribbon tail landing 3 small lmb. None weighed more than 1.5lbs. All of them were caught either just in, or on the edge of the marsh grass in about 6’ of water. Worm bite got slow and we switched to topwater. Landed a few small pickerels on the black jitterbug running it parallel to the grass with a constant retrieve. Didn’t get any pictures, none were really worth it. I wanna go back at a dead low tide (probably at least 4-5hrs behind scituate) and look for the pockets since I think with the tide that high a lot of fish are deep in the marsh grass and inaccessible.

North River Flounder (Fluke)

North River

Decided to launch the canoe in the north river last night and scout a few spots for stripers. low tide (in scituate harbor) was at about 6 so I figured I could find some of the deeper pockets. Note to self and anyone who launches in the river; it had been a while since I have done this and I thought the tide was only an hour behind scituate. Not true, at least 2+ hours different since we caught the outgoing tide when we launched and still had to paddle against the current (still going out) on our way back around 8:30. No fun.
The upside, sorta, is we didn't get skunked. Was using my freshwater gear since I don't do much saltwater fishing and managed to hook into a 3.6lb flounder (fluke). I was using my ultralight setup with 10lb powerpro and this guy took about 10-15mins to boat. Fought like a champ, I thought he was gonna break my 5'6" micro-graphite a few different times when he ran. I caught him on a baby bass colored rubber minnow on a 1/4oz jig which he inhaled. I got lucky he didn't get off, his teeth put some pretty nice nicks in the braid. Sorry about the picture quality, we were fighting daylight and my camera in my phone isn't that great.

Jacobs after work

Jacob's Pond

hi everyone, works been crazy lately leaving little time for fishing. I did get to spend a week fishing in maine which was great but most of the fish (no bass in this lake) were holing deep and tough to get at. most of the luck was on the fly rod catching brookies, perch and chub.
anyways, seeing as the temp has been a little lower i figured I'd get out to jacobs after work. Started topwater and missed a few hits before the bit slowed. changed it up to cranks and spinnerbaits with no hits at all. something followed the spinnerbait all the way back (probably a pickerel) but that was it. Finally, not wanting to get skunked I tossed on the senko. Fist cast and 'Tic'. Just shy of 3lbs, she fought like a bigger fish though. No a pig but I was pumped, I picked up a tourney special with a pro qualifier and this was the fist fish on it!

Jacob's Pond

Hit Jacob's this morning for about an hour starting at 6. I planned on getting out earlier but couldn't pull myself outta bed. Started out throwing rubbers and spinnerbaits with no luck. I decided to go topwater and threw on the heddon tiny torpedo. Not even a full second after it hit the water this guy took a strike at it. Nothing huge 2lbs maybe 2.5. Decided to call it quits after that, might head back later

Norwell Bogs

Hit the pond at the cranberry bogs in norwell for the first time in about 5 years. There used to be some pigs in there but a backwash of chemicals killed a lot of fish off maybe 6 or 7 years ago. I fished for about an hour using a white grub and a roostertail. No bass but I managed to pull in a few decent perch and a pickerel.

my south shore honey hole

south shore

I take a trip to my local honey hole after work a few times a week and fish from various shore spots, primarily with a light setup and rubber worms. The fishing is very reliable; relatively clear water, lots of structure and not a lot of pressure. I went last night from about 6-8pm and was switching between a 4" power worm and a 6" senko, both pumpkin seed and both Texas rigged without a weight. I ended up with 7 bass (only took pics of best 5) the best being about 3lbs (didn't have my scale, based on size)

also, sorry about the picture quality, I was trying to balance on a rock without losing either my phone or the fish lol
