Arlington Reservoir

Started out this afternoon at Spy Pond -- nothing. I think the bucketeers have pretty much cleaned it out. Drove over to Arlington Reservoir and it was a different story, my friends. Two nice bass in about twenty minutes. Powerbait wacky worm both times, dropped about 25 feet off shore.

Mystic River, MA

Snuck out on Sunday afternoon to the headwaters of the Mystic River where it flows out of Lower Mystic Lake. Bagged two decent SMB, numerous bluegills, yellow perch, and a white perch.

Walden Pond

Perfect conditions: cloudy, no wind, cold, just after the rain/drizzle ended. My kid and I drove out to Walden Pond and went to the first set of stone steps as you walk counterclockwise from the beach. That classic Walden water was clear and smooth as glass, and we saw many LMBs in about six feet of water,snubbing everything we offered them, from live worms to plastics. Moved downshore a bit to a more open spot, saw a hefty brown trout only a few feet from shore, snapping at bugs. Made me wish I'd brought my fly rod! Can't wait to come back and give it another go.

Lincoln/Sudbury Area

Went out this afternoon to a favorite small pond in the Lincoln/Sudbury area. (If you're burning to know, send me a PM). This place has mostly small bass, and lots of bluegills, and at least one monster bass that I managed to catch back in July.
Today's haul was several bluegill, one decent bass, and a horn pout that managed to spear me in the finger pretty good. The Monster is still out there, but will have to wait for another day.

Squannacook River, W. Groton, MA

Went out early on a drizzly Saturday morning to go after trout on the Squannacook. There's a great spot right off the road with two single-space parking areas. Awesome cover, with some fallen trees spanning the river, brush, deep holes, sandy stretches. Spent three hours in a battle of wits with a big old brownie who came close enough to the surface for me to get a look at him. I was fishing a PowerBait floating trout worm, got him to bite a few times, but couldn't seal the deal. Made him jump a few times though!

Spy Pond Perch Frenzy

Was out fishing Spy Pond this morning, along the "nature trail" to the left of the turn-around circle at the end of Linwood. Got some nibbles from a school of small perch, but no bites. Saw the water boiling with perch at one spot -- the whole school was thrashing around in a knot just at the surface. Anyone know what's behind that behavior at this time of year?

Hot sunny morning, caught 13-inch bass using a shiner. A great spot is on the stone steps leading down to the water near the playground just off the bike path.
