Ice fishing Goose Pond with Charter the Berkshires

Views: 297
Goose Pond Tyringham, MA
I went out west to go ice fishing with Charter the Berkshires. On this occasion, I invited my friend Cole to come out with me. We signed up for the morning charter, which lasts from 7am to 11am. It was a relatively small charter, it was just myself, my father, Cole, Cole's father, and another kid and his father. This was my 3rd time fishing with Charter the Berkshires, and it was hands down the best. For bait, we had shiners on tip ups and we were jigging small jigs tipped with wax worms. As soon as we got out there, the action heated up. Our catch mainly consisted of sunfish and perch. We also caught a few pickerel, including a 22 inch 3lb 4oz gator, and I also caught one little bass. Between the 6 of us, we caught over 30 fish. Special thanks to our guides Nolan and Mike for putting us on the fish, and a great day on the hard water.

Panfish fishing with JUMBO perch surprise

Ames Long Pond, MA
11/20/2016

Since it's starting to get cold out, I decided to take a short trip to Ames to try and catch some crappie and perch. Despite the cold, the fish were biting. So yeah it was pretty good. I was having a lot of fun and I'd caught some bluegill, a couple of crappie, and a perch. After about an hour and a half, I cast near some dead weeds and hooked something big. At first I thought it was a bass because it pulled my bobber down hard and peeled drag. I eventually got it near the shore and I saw it was a giant yellow perch. Once I grabbed the fish, I took a quick picture and got the length and weight. The fish was 16 inches in length with a 9 inch girth, and it weighed 1.75 pounds, my PB. I released the fish afterward and decided to call it a day.

Redfish Fishing New Symerna Beach

New Symerna Beach, FL
10/1/2016

I went down to Orlando, FL for a week with my family. My mom and sister really like going to Disney, so one of the days that they went there, I went up to New Symerna Beach to do some fishing with my dad. We found a guy who chartered for redfish and sea trout, and he took us out. The bite was pretty slow for the first 3 hours, with a few of the nuisance sail catfish here and there. At one point, we came to a spot where we saw a school of redfish. After about 20 minutes at that spot, I finally hooked a good fish. When I brought it to the boat, we saw that it was a redfish and the captain netted it. The fish measured 25 inches long and was estimated at about 5.5-6 pounds. I took a few photos and released the fish afterwards. About an hour later, my dad set the hook into another redfish. This fish fought much harder, and was bigger than mine. It measured 28 inches long and was very thick. It was estimated to be around 8.5 pounds. I feel like we should have caught a lot more, the fish were biting, but just not taking the bait all the way in their mouths, overall a good day though. Sorry for the late post,I've had a lot going on.

Amazing Striped Bass Fishing With Reel Deal Charters

Orleans, MA

I decided to take a trip down to Orleans to try and catch some stripers. My Da's friend knows the guy who owns Reel Deal Charters, so he set up this trip for us. We left the dock at 6 am, and got to the spot at about 6:30. We were using big metal jigs with green tails on the hook. Our technique was to drop the jig down to the bottom, and jig it back up aggressively. For the first hour or so, the fish finder was littered with marks. As soon as our jig hit the bottom, a fish would bite it. It was unbelievable, most of the stripers were in the 36-38 inch range. The smallest was 30 inches, the largest was a 41 incher caught by my Dad's friend. My best striper was 40 inches. There were also bluefish, and they were all 30+ inches. After the first hour, the striper action slowed down, and the damn dogfish started to find us. Combined, the four of us on board ended up with about 40 fish, including striped bass, bluefish, and dogfish. Hands down some of the best fishing I've ever done. I shot a number of videos, and will post a link as soon as I get them on YouTube.

Tons of sharks on Jeffrey's

Jeffrey's Ledge, MA
Went out with Yankee Fleet again seeing as the cod are now in season. This time, we went up pretty far on Jeffrey's Ledge. Within seconds of dropping the baits, 3 or 4 people hooked up with redfish(ocean perch). As they were catching the redfish, I hooked up with and landed a hefty 24 inch, 5 pound haddock. My Dad then caught a smaller haddock that was just short of keeper size. Then, the dogfish began to find us which was very annoying because nobody wanted to unhook them due to the spines, and more of them meant less cod and haddock. Despite the sharks, many people caught keeper haddock, and two guys at the front of the boat caught BIG cod. I also ended up pulling away with a pollock in the 18-19 inch range. Just as we had to head back, I caught a 22 inch cod, but had to release it due to the limit being 24 inches, DAMMIT! >:(

Incredible day at Square Lake

Square Lake Aroostook County, ME
7/8/2016

After catching only one fish on the St. John, my guide suggested that we go to Square Lake if we wanted to catch more fish. On this occasion, my grandfather decided to come along too. We met at the Cross Lake boat dock and drove to and through the thoroughfare to get to Square Lake. Once we got out to Square Lake, we drove around until we reached deeper water so we could start trolling. We put out three rods with baitfish-like spinners and three fly rods with wet flies. After about ten minutes, the fish started coming fast and furious. The first fish were mainly salmon, although there was one trout. They were only hitting the spinners until my grandfather hooked a good salmon on a fly. The action then died down, but they started hitting again about an hour later, this time on the flies. It was absolute madness! I can't think of much else to say, we were hooking up every 5-10 minutes, nothing huge, but decent sized trout and salmon. Sorry for being really close to the camera in some pictures, there were 3 of us on board and the boat was small. We fished until the bite died at about 3:00 pm, and we ended up with 21 fish. The fish were mostly trout and salmon, and of course, a few perch and fallfish, or as they're called up here "crap fish". This is hands down some of the best fishing I've ever done. If you ever want to come out to Square Lake, make sure to venture out with an experienced guide because it's hard to get to and easy to get lost out there. Definitely going to come back here when I can, and I hope to catch some bigger ones next time.

St. John River Fishing

St. John River Van Buren, ME
I went on my yearly trip to Stockholm, Maine to visit family and friends. My friend and I worked out a day to go fishing on the St. John for smallies and muskies. My friend is a professional guide for Moose Country Guide Service Stockholm, ME. We got his boat on the river at about 7:30 am and went to a spot to try for smallmouth. The spot was an old cement structure just a little bit beyond the railroad bridge. My friend has caught bass up to 18-19 inches here. I used a red and brown Texas rigged Gary Yamamoto worm. On about the 5th or 6th cast, I hooked a smallie that jumped twice before I flipped him into the boat. He was 11 inches long, not a bad bass. We had several more bites, but we missed them all. After the bite died, we rigged up muskie lures to troll for muskies. We trolled all day, but no such luck. The muskie isn't called the "fish of 10000 casts" for nothing, lol. So if you ever come up to Stockholm, definitely look up Moose Country Guide Service.

Yankee Fleet Deep Sea Fishing

Gloucester, MA

I heard the haddock fishing was really good on Yankee fleet, so I decided to take a fishing trip with them. We left the dock at 2:30pm, and got to our spot at about 3. We were about 7 miles out. As soon as we dropped anchor, people started hooking up left and right with cod and haddock. One guy caught a few 5+ pound haddock on buck tail jigs with clams. I started off by catching a couple of cod, and a small haddock. My Dad caught one cod, and I caught a 17 inch keeper haddock at the end. It's such a shame we can't keep cod these days because they're so tasty, and the guy next to me caught a 2 foot beauty that died when he released it, and he couldn't keep it(ugh, such a waste). We headed back at about 5:30pm, and as we got to the dock, there was a huge crowd gathered. I looked around, and below the crowd was FV-TUNA.COM from Wicked Tuna! Overall, really good fishing on Yankee Fleet.

Went fishing at Falls Pond with my friend to see what we could catch. We used nightcrawlers and grubs. Combined, we caught a total of 8 sunfish(only one photo worthy). I also caught a little largie on a grub, and a decent largie on a live sunfish later.
