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.
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).
The ranking score is used to determine how "popular" a trip or location is. It is calculated based off of a weighted average of the number of reviews and the user ratings. For example, a location with 2 reviews and an average rating of 5 will have a lower "ranking score" than one with 10 reviews and an average rating of 4. This is because even though the first location has a better average rating, it has not been reviewed as much as the second location, so it is not as "popular". In the future we may modify the ranking score to take in additional factors, such as the number of views, comments, and photos.
