Jack Huntress gave a great talk last night at the Concord Rod and Gun Club on fishing the Quabbin Reservoir. It included tips on where and how to catch Smallmouth Bass and Lake Trout using trolling, live bait, and artificials. Jack said on warm spring days in the shallows it’s not uncommon to have a “lights out” 50+ fish days. I’ll be posting a PDF shortly of his presentation which will include information on access points for the lake, boat rentals, regulations, and where to catch what.
I also talks about fishing in Concord and Carlisle and what you can catch (and where). As evidence of the “untapped resources” we have in the local ponds above is a photo if a 4lb+ Largemouth Bass my son Bill caught on Sunday in Concord on his way home from work. I’ll be posting that presentation as well which includes a listing of the ponds and rivers so sign up to receive my blog postings by going to the upper left hand corner of this page and entering your email address if you want to stay in touch.
