3rd and perhaps remaining time at the Quabbin – Fishing Stories

Superior afternoon anyone,


I am new to indicator up and write-up on these message boards, but I have been looking through fishing studies for the previous four-five several years now.  I have acquired a huge information of distinctive lures and get energized with all the extra fat stomach photos that are posted each individual 12 months prespawn.  I have carried out a whole lot of analysis on the Quabbin, but in some cases analysis isn’t going to defeat expertise. 


I am producing below inquiring for recommend on the Quabbin.  My childhood close friend and I have been fishing for the previous 15+ several years, but we stay in Japanese MA where by most of the drinking water experienced shallow and muddy bottoms, not excellent for our smallmouth close friends.  3 years in the past, we ultimately ventured around to the Quabbin to look at out all the buzz, loaded the auto up and headed West at three:30 AM.  We the two consider do the job off to go on a weekday to stay clear of the weekend hurry, so it is a distinctive vacation we only built as soon as that 12 months. Most of my jigs ended up supposed for largemouth and experienced issue acquiring the base in specified places.  We each individual acquired a number of smallies, but I however swear that we just acquired blessed :)  This initial 12 months, we introduced the boat out of place three and experienced most luck just all over the corner from the boat start.  It was more than enough to keep me around, but retained me itching to want to go again the subsequent 12 months…


Which we did!  Immediately after looking through lots of tales on below, I acquired a little bit far more educated on greater lures to use to goal the smallies and introduced 2 times the quantity of equipment the 2nd time all over.  This time, we ventured around to place two and tried using our luck up that way.  The weather conditions was stunning and the waters ended up quiet, what far more can you check with for?  Oh appropriate, some fish in the internet!  Properly, the early morning arrived and went with no bites.  The afternoon we posted in a shady shallower place and I noticed a extra fat largemouth all over the weeds so I set on the greatest spinner bait I experienced and she nailed it initial solid!  It was my PB largemouth at four.75 and built up for no early morning motion.  However, the Quabbin acquired the finest of us that working day as my largemouth was the only fish we ended up capable to internet. Our egos took a little bit strike that working day, significant more than enough to close up not likely again the pursuing 12 months.  Our big downfall was not recognizing the place or owning an concept of where by to goal, also not owning a sonar failed to enable us possibly.


A further 12 months has handed and we are all set to give it a go just one far more time, hoping not to strike out for the 3rd 12 months. We are more mature, a little bit far more wiser, but a lot far more geared up this time!  We have a terrific Chirp sonar to use this time as perfectly as an intensive possibility of baits (can not wait around to toss out my Zman TRD!).  We are likely to head out just one working day on the previous 7 days in Might.


I am not searching to steal anyone’s place or consider all the techniques, but if we strike out once more this time, I you should not foresee having a different vacation, which breaks my coronary heart to say. Any ideas/recommend that you happen to be keen to aspect approaches with, you should PM me.  Do you like place two or three for early fishing?  Any places to retain an eye on as we journey all over with the sonar?  I truly recognize nearly anything you may possibly have to enable my childhood close friend and I set a smallie in the internet this thirty day period.


I can not wait around to share my vacation with you all at the close of the thirty day period at allow you know how we built out!  I thank you in progress for everyone who is keen to consider the time to communicate with me, I guarantee it will keep just among him and I!
