Originally from.?..you guessed it England. Enjoyed fishing for carp, tench and bream for many years over there. Now I live in New Hamspire. Started scoping out the area for carp.Im finding out that most of them are in Mass.
Meh no worries right? Think it was just a frustrating day all around. We went back on Sunday and the sticks were down and it was fishable but there was still a bit of junk floating. We ended up with 5 fish, Ezra had 3 himself in my spot, I took your usual position. Nate had one and I got one. Biggest in the 15 range.
We are thinking this weekend either echo lake, which we are still scouting, Possibly more toward Methuan, maybe that parking lot we talked about the other day at 1122 riverside drive( I like this idea since they claim that most of the fish caught below the essex dam in lawrence are 20+), or maybe Lake ripple if I can make some good pop-ups..or whatever. Looking at a few spots and want to make it a fun, lazy, good fish day where we can get away from people a bit.
Sunday I have to be at the farm for Smokey's birthday. Which I am hoping will be fun but am thinking it will be busy so..
Anyway I'm glad your still talking to me , I haven't had a bad day in a while but what can you do, ya know. Glad work is going good..get to making that money!
Going to watch a movie, make some boilies and what not. Restocked on some ingredients so should make some good ones. Talk at you soon,

Yeah does stink about the ride..we will have to find places in between heh
As far as this Sunday, I'm thinking the pond area of the canal should work. The location is River Bend Farm also known as the Blackstone River and Canal Heritage State park, 287 oak street Uxbridge, Ma (linky http://www.mass.gov/dcr/parks/central/blst.htm )
8 am is fine, we normally get there round 7 am as is, I like early starts too..but getting the girlfriend and roomate up and outta bed before 6 is..well tough
Anything else you need feel free to gimme a call or what not..on Sunday just gimme a call when you arrive , we won't be far from the visitors center.
As far as bait goes, I'll have feed corn and some boilies that we have been feeding in the canal which have been working well. I'd be interested in your pack bait, I have a few that I use and they tend to work well along the Blackstone. Mine are mostly grits based or dog food so if you want to bring yours I would be interested to see what kind of results it has here. I've tried chick peas many times but haven't had much success on the canal. Lunch meat is good..but we have some big snapping turtles that may go after it..we have caught a few in the 80+ pound range so yikes, course those were on chicken liver.
On a side note, are you partial to anything for lunch? We tend to bring a grill and such, also my Liz will be around, she likes to go for walks and such at the park so if your Liz wants to she is more then welcome to come and hang out.
