My last time there three years ago we caught 30-35 LMBs between 1-1.5 lbs and one 7.14..

It used to be 50 for the ice breaker.  The coves get a tad crowded but honestly they spread out pretty good

Nice fish but pictures are useless when it comes to accuracy.. No offense... Depending on your size, how you hold the fish, the background etc makes every picture different.. I've held very big bass over 12 lbs and the pictures make them look like 6 or 7s.. I'm 6'2 250 so I don't get that benefit of good fish pics.

If you take a soft tape on the boat you can at least get a length and girth and can get a pretty accurate idea of the weight.

Either way .. Good job, nice perch.

Well after reading more on the subject and looking at the proposed ban on plastics and most hooks I'm convinced its lobbyist - political and privately motivated bs that poses a real threat to anglers of Maine. I'm sure there is a trace of truth in there but nothing that increased education and possibly individual lake guidelines couldn't solve.. As others have mentioned in other threads the blanket type laws are ignorant and dangerous. How long before other states try and follow.

Thanks for all the links Groti.  It's important for me to have as much data as I can get to form an opinion.  Like many other people I have turned to tungsten when available but many small home made jig company's
 ( which I use primarily ) don't make a tungsten head.  Obviously it's for selfish reasons I wouldn't want t the ban but if there was definitive proof then it would certainly give me reasons not to use them.. There isn't a jig that's manufactured professionally that I use so it would pose a problem but I'm sure collectively we would figure something out.   Thanks again for the data

Anyone fishing it this year. ?  I haven't seen any discussion on it this year and had to check tournament listings to see if it was still on.. Ill probably fish it if there are any spots still open

For helping me get back on your site.. It's been a tough few years and I'm looking forward to getting back to some serious fishing.. ;D.  Now only if it would warm up some...I hit Amos for a few hours at ice out but the wind made it very tough.  Here's to a good year fishing to everyone...

I'll try to stay serious.  :o

I still have a crawdad that I fished out of for many years. I won tourneys and fished in conditions I probably shouldn't have.  It is by far the best small boat ever made imo. I love to get into any small pond and sneak around in the crawdad.

As far Tournament bass fishing goes I agree w/ Curt, your boat is just another tool until the wind hits 20+ and the white caps start. Even on small lakes / ponds the wind is a major detriment in small boats. Don't get me wrong though as long as the environment and conditions dictate, the guy in the small boat can win on any given day. When I went up to a bigger boat it was nice to have the ability to fish bigger lakes and rivers w/ less worry. A good sized boat w/ a 80+ lb TM can keep you on most any point you want in serious wind.

You can never be safe enough however and awful accidents happen frequently as they do in cars , motorcycles etc. It's born of negligence generally, ignorance and stupidity. I've made my share of mistakes over the years. I honestly do a pre-process, in my head  before I get in my boat. I started doing that when I had children 10 yrs ago in my car and just carried over to my boat.  

You just can't be safe enough these days. It's not just yourself, you have to be on high alert for some other knucklehead. I'm sure we could fill ten pages with a thread on "knuckleheads". I'm amazed at times of the lack of common sense and courtesy that people offer to one another.  There are however many responsible boaters that I know but you get one or two knuckleheads and 'those dam bass guys' ::) all get lumped together. It sure has been a long winter. Good fishing to everyone and be safe

Great job Dennis! Thanks for posting the report and pics.

Hard to believe Amos was that busy already, but I guess it's to be expected this time of year, after having a long winter.

Ditto....I had the morning planned for Amos but two unexpected sick kids kept me home...No matter what, it's great to see an open water report full of bass....there's time for a march Amos tourney..??

Great report as always Tom. I just saw you on VS in the big bass competition. Good times. :D
