    Default Report; 7/24/19

    It was one thing after another for Walt & I, but we finally had an opportunity to hit the Quabbin Res. today together! When we started fishing a bit after 8 am, the air was a nice, cool 62 degrees! Quite a change from the brutal heat wave last weekend with temps close to 100 and oppressive 74% humidity! Not sure what the water temp was, but from my previous trips, it had to be in the low to mid 80's. Light breeze made for a very pleasant outing. This is what our day started out like:

    Doesn't get much better than this! We consistently marked and caught fish between 12 to 24 feet. Plenty of bait around as well. Here's one shot of the fish finder:

    When we pulled off just after 1 pm (a good 5 hours of fishing), we had caught & released 68 fish; one yellow perch, 3 bluegill and the rest our target species, the crappie! Walt started out with the "hot" rod this morning, but I gave him a run for the money, closing the gag to an acceptable level by the time we called it quits. Biggest producer for Walt was the Slider grub; for me it was the BG Baby Shads. They seem to prefer "chicken" or natural color patterns today for whatever reason. I shuffled through a lot different colors throughout the morning.

    We both cast & drifted (when the breeze allowed us to). Did not have our side pulling electric with us on this trip. Wish we had! Here are a few pictures of our fish today:

    No real giants, but good quality fish on UL tackle. LOTS of fun! Great day to be on the water with a fine fishing partner. Got Bless America!!

    Looks like you guys had a busy and rewarding day. Hope you get out again soon before the heat builds back in.
    Bluegill still fear me...but the crappie are not laughing quite as loudly as they used to.

    Ya gotta do what you have to do before you can do what you wanna do.

    That sounds like a great trip. Good to see you two back on the water together.
