Spot Pond Afternoon

Spot Pond, Stoneham MA
6/21/2011

I had an hour to kill and had to stay in the area so I enjoyed a nice walk in the woods exploring the shoreline of Spot Pond. The wind was out of the S/SE and a steady 5-8mph keeping the surface of the water active. I looked for lines of shadow / light near points and structure. A couple casts out with a senko/texas and I decided the fish might be looking for something slower given the bright sunny day - they may still be feeling shy. I put on a senko/wacky unweighted and worked it like a healthy minnow moving from the light into the shadow to shore. Picked up a few good bites and a decent 13" smallmouth. 3/4lb probably. Nice way to spend the first day of summer!

Coolidge Ave Peabody MA

I stopped at the water treatment area off Coolidge Ave in Peabody on the way home. Some kids picking off sunny's in the water treatment side...I saw a cruising LG in there but no point, it's well fed. No bites. The opposite side is a nice pond but man, all access points are about 10-20" deep. The bottom is nice, leaf-littered and not a lot to snag on. But where it's so shallow, without walking around the whole pond to scout for better access points - I was not impressed.

UPDATE: I stand corrected. I have confirmed this location as profitable for LGmth. My buddy caught a 3lber in the same spot I was standing later that day and had a fight with a goliath that BENT HIS JIG'S HOOK 3 days earlier. I had my doubts...and was looking forward to trying this spot again...glad to hear that it could be potentially a WIN.

Spot Pond Lunch

Spot Pond, Stoneham MA
6/8/2011

I arrived on my lunch break and briskly walked to a distant point. About 10 minutes from the N parking area. I found a point that was adjacent to deeper water which is not hard, but I wanted to get a little farther out from civilization. I settled in and immediately noticed several bait-sized bass accompanied by several 2-3 lbers cruising the rocks. Very nice. My first few casts with a pumpkin 5" senko on Texas rig yielded 2 10" small mouth's. After a few lure losses on the rocks !@#$*#^&@*! (hate shore fishing) I wrapped it up and came home sweating like a marathon runner training in the sahara....but my hands smells like smallmouth, so I'm okay with it.

Field Pond, Andover MA Harold Parker
6/2/2011

Stopped by Field Pond in Harold Parker on the way home last Thursday. After working the shoreline and HUGE cover from downed trees in the pond across the street I went over to Field. I found a place where you can walk out on to a point by balancing on some logs. Once out there I ripped a spinnerbait into the wind and pulled out a sardine size largemouth. Worked all around the point - only about 20 minutes of casting. Sardine was all I got. Good access to almost all the shoreline around the lake and again, some good cover on the E side of the pond. Kayak would be key.

Whittemore Pond Lunch Trip

Whittemore Pond - Woburn, MA
6/7/2011

First time to Whittemore on lunch. Limited access to shoreline. Water was about 2-3' deep off shore with muddy bottom dotted with milfoil. Plenty of lilypads on left and right margins with 2 spots out in the center. One angler caught a 1lb lgmth out of the center pads while I was there. I used a senko, shakey worm, jig and shallow crank - got nothing. It was hot though. Really need a kayak to make the most of the cover available on the ponds NE edges. Fishing from shore is very limited but better than nothing. I think this spot qualifies as "casting into a puddle" which beats a boring lunch in the breakroom. Parking for 4-5 cars is tight. If you drive down to the water you risk getting blocked in by someone parking in front of the access road. Lots of baitfish on shore. I may go back with a frog and work the pads.
