Mashpee Wakebee Pond

Spend the day on Mashpee/Wakebee Pond in Mashpee. Weather was great, started out foggy and eventully the sun came out and made for a great day of fishing.
Caught several small mouth bass, several large mouth bass, perch & rainbow trout.
Used crank baits, spinner baits and rubber worms for most of the day.
Lake is a great place to fish from a kayak, there was quite a bit of boat traffic in and around the area that we spent fishing.

Blackstone River - Cold Spring Park - Woonsocket RI

Access point is a small launch site behind Cold Spring Park in Woonsocket RI. Area has been cleaned up and renovated quite a bit since our last trip there. Access to the river was very easy.
Weather was great, no wind, plenty of sun, flow of river was very slow with the paddling being good.
We put in at 1100am at the launch site and heading south downriver 1 mile to the dam in Woonsocket RI.
There are 4 road/bridge crossings on that section of the river.
Those areas are where we had the most luck fishing. We were able to pull in 6 small mouth bass ranging from 10" to 16", most were caught around the bridge supports.
We were using crank baits and rubber worms for most of the day.
Not a lot of cover along the river, the area along the river has been cut back quite a bit. Another small John boat was also fishing the same area. Several people were fishing with live bait from the shore line, spoke to a couple of boys who were fishing the bottom with live bait and witnessed them pulling in a 16" small mouth bass from the shore.
If your looking for large carp we saw several large carp in a couple of spots with the carp sitting along the shore line in 10" of water.
Paddled down to the dam, then back to the launch site, took a break and paddled upstream to the St Paul St bridge, then back to the launch site at 400pm.
Overall we had a pretty good day and will be planning another trip to this location very soon.

Quabaug River - Brookfield Ma

Great day to be in a Kayak Fishing.

We went to the Quabaug River in Brookfield Ma and spent the day on the water / river. Access point was the new small launch ramp at the bridge on Rt. 148 which crosses the river. The bridge is still being replaced, roadway is down to one lane and we were surprised to see that that small access ramp was open for use. We had planned to put in at the launch point for Quabaug Lake.
Ramp still needs some work to be completed, parking is limited at the ramp to only 3 or 4 cars. There is additional parking down around the corner with about a 3 minute walk back to the ramp.
There was quite a few recreational kayakers on the river with only 2 small power boats. Weather was great, very calm, no wind at all, air temp was 85 degrees, water temp was 76 degrees.
We headed West (downstream) from the bridge and worked both shore lines. Picked up a couple of small perch and a couple of small bass.
Headed back (upstream) past the bridge and worked both sides of the river. River was rather low with quite a few weed banks to contend with. Once again we picked up a couple of small perch and a couple of small bass. We were using mainly top water crank baits as well as some spinner baits.
We didn't go all the way to the lake entrance.
Other fisherman were using rubber worms earlier in the day and had some good success with them pulling in a couple of 2 to 3 lb bass.

Tully Lake -25 Doane Hill Rd, Royalston Ma

Tully Lake - spent the day out on the water here. Put in is a small Kayak access point on Doane Rd. This place is worth the drive, it's a very nice location.
We put in and went north up the small stream into Long Pond. There used to be a small beaver dam blocking the way into Long Pond but in has been opened up to the point of be able to paddle up and into it. Fishing was a little slow with nothing of any size being caught. When we put in there was our two kayaks and another kayak on the water at 800am. When we came back towards the launch point we passed 10 to 15 kayakers.
When we reached the launch point we took a break then headed south into Tully Lake. it's quite the area and great for kayaks on any type. Motors over 10hp are not allowed. The lake has quite a few islands and plenty of places to fish. Once again fishing was pretty slow, people we spoke with that knew the lake said it was just an off day for fishing and that usually fishing is pretty good.
We plan to make another trip up there soon.

Lake Quinsigamond - Shrewsbury Ma

My wife and I launched from the State Ramp on the North Side of the Lake near the Donahue Rowing Center off of N Quinsigamond Ave. Paddled north under the 290 bridge and went back into the Lilly pads that are located on the north side of Lincoln St.
Caught a 3lb largemouth at one of the 290 bridge supports. Got a couple of smaller largemouths on the east side of the lake also. My wife picked up a couple of small largemouths in that same area.
We worked the east side of the lake and also the west side for 6 hours. Picked up a nice 3lb largemouth on the west side of the lake also pretty close to one of the bridge supports.
There is a small area just north of the 290 bridge on the west side that shows a small hump in the bottom of the lake and that turned out to be pretty productive for both of us.
Weather was great, boat traffic in that end of the lake was too bad.
Plenty of weed banks to focus on on both sides of the lake, water in that area was pretty clear, visibility was 3' to 4' in most areas. Water temperature was in the low 70's.
Overall we had a pretty good day.
