User Discussion:
In late August '17 a guy fishing with nightcrawlers shows me a couple of fish he caught and asks me whether they're bass. He's worried because they're only about 8" long and wouldn't be legal. What they were were *white perch*. I have fished here for years and never seen a white perch, which actually *is* a kind of bass, related to stripers though.

You often see big largemouth in this pond by the way, you see them patrolling in the crystal clear water. The thing is they can see you too. You catch juvenile largemouth all the time here because they're dumb and greedy, but the big ones are wary.

Fished yesterday, 9-10-16. Got there between 739 and 8, and started fishing to the right of the rental dock.

After 20 mi utes or so I hooked into and landed a nice sized largemouth. The bass was long but very thin and looked to have an injured spine.

It still fought well though for what looked like an old and or crippled fish.

Other than that all we caught in 5 hours were a few short smallmouth bass on shiners.

Lots of water to cover. We rented a row boat for a couple hours but boat control was tough in the wind. We took it to the big Island and fished that shore for an hour.

The shoreline drops quick, and it looks very deep right off the bank.

Didn't seem like there were many fish up close to shore, if they were they were not active. Saw lots of sunfish and small bass.

Yeah , i went offshore fishing here a few times, caught a few bass but the water is very dirty and looks polluted to be honest. A friend and I went wading there once last year and when we came out of the water our waders turned a different color. Maybe its good for kayak angling.. but i wouldn't try it. Mystic Lake in medford ma is about a block a way.

Spot is off-limits to private boats of all kinds. You can rent a canoe, kayak, or rowboat there for a hefty hourly fee (but check Groupon, they sometimes offer coupons for boat rentals that effectively cuts the price in half).
