@Curt - RI , we fished a tiny 30 acre pond for 4 hrs before we headed home and caught over 2 dozen fish, which let us end on a good note.

Just got back from a trip to Maine. It was tough fishing due to Fall turnover and low lake levels from a dam repair on the lake. I did run into Ryan from Maine Cabin Masters which was kinda cool.

It's been about a month since I've been able to fish out of my canoe (hurt back). Took a short trip to one of my out of the way spots for a few hours this morning and it paid off.

@Curt - RI , that's where the clearest water in the pond was, with a little current from the wind.

Fished a small pond that I have decades of history on, and after 1 1/2 hrs of fishing history I only had two small fish. I decided to hit one spot that I usually don't have much luck on but the wind was blowing in there so I gave it a shot on my way out. The fish were stacked and I landed several quality fish in just 2 to 3 fow, slow rolling a spinner above the grass. My best 5 went 15 lbs give or take a couple ounces. I guess you just have to listen to the fish.

Fished a "new" pond with my dad today and it was so-so. we only caught 10 bass but no big ones. The thing shocked me the most was that there was no grass anywhere in the pond just lilies. Slab crappies though. Might try it again next Spring.

Had a (good) day and was catching lots of fish but most of them were small with a handful of medium (keeper) fish. As the morning wound down the wind started to put a ripple on the water, so I tied on a buzzbait and made myself to fish it all the way back to the truck. Half way back there was an explosion (the great) and chaos ensued. I don't know if my heart can take many more of these fish out of the canoe, but I'll take that chance. When I got back to shore I threw my back out (the ugly) lifting the canoe over head. All worth it though.

I fish mainly in N.E. Conn and N.W. RI and I'd say there are plenty of quality bass in both states. I went out this morning and absolutely smoked them, catching dozens of fish and would have had a 16 lb limit if I didn't lose a 4 1/2 at boat-side. Who needs Mass. @Brazzy

@Brazzy Day trips are still allowed as far as I know. But I would check web-site to be sure.

After three weeks of no big fish, I decided to do some river fishing in the canoe and it payed off. I saw this fish coming from ten feet away and just stopped under my frog, two twitches and she unloaded on it. Fishing in a canoe in small rivers for jumbo bass is like organized chaos.

None, just straight bait with a trailer hook.

It seems the past week of heat, and probably this week has kept the big ones a little sluggish. I've been getting 6 to 12 fish most days but not many big ones. Anyone catching big fish in this heat?
