I was thinking the same thing. The only place around here that even comes close to a good smallmouth fishery is the Quinebaug River. And even that can't come close to competing with Maine lakes and rivers when it comes to smallies  :nope:

Candlewood is still a hike. Quabbin is closed for the year, but there is still that place that doesnt have any fish.

I know I'm a little late on this post, but as someone mentioned, head north for a bit and then hang a right.  I've been having a blast out at mashpee/wakeby.  Having a blast casting that is, because we all know that there's no fish there.......  Blade bite is on fire out there right now, as well as the jerkbait bite.

Getting to Great Pond today. It was disappointing given the effort to get there but a good day.

Maiden voyage (First for fishing anyway) in new boat. Cut Keel guard in half at the waterline on an earlier edition. Need Fisher to come out with an extreme v for boats.

Today was a gorgeous day for sure. I wish I had been able to get out there, but I just couldn't pull away from my work.

Great Pond was frozen just enough to keep us off today. Could walk on the ice for a bout 10' and 1/2 inch thick after that for about 100'. Lake gourgous otherwise. Light variable winds above 40. We went down the road to Messalonski catching a few quick then found her tough. Sudden squall with heavy wind and rain, not snow luckily, pushed us off the lake early. Good fishing slow catching. 3 smallies 1 pike.
