largemouth season is in full swing

last weekend I hit a lake on the northshore wading and tossing unweighted platics, caught about 12 bass, all between 2-3 lbs. these fish are in full blown prespawn mode, and some are getting on beds.

2 days ago a friend hit the same place and got about 20 in 3 hrs, including a 6 lber and 4 lber. many of the fish had the bottom half of their tails worn off from being on beds.

if youre waiting for largemouth season to really get started, stop waiting, its on! go get em!

Good to know I've been wondering when they'd start getting active been looking for a good fight. Thanks for the heads up.

The Bite is ON!

I couldn't agree more. I hit a pond a bit more towards the Woburn area last night and found this fish. I didn't see it's bed but, it was as close to spawning as it could have been. No Scale on hand but, it was a personal best for me!

Great bass! Is that fish pushing 10 lbs.? Very nice catch in any water, let alone anywhere north of Florida or Texas.

Yesterday I walked around a pond close to Woburn and saw a very nice bass cruising along the bottom only 10 feet from shore. This bass was the largest I've ever seen in that water, maybe pushing 5 lbs. Of course, we had just chummed the shallows by stocking 600, 6"-14" new trout, and the cormorants arrived shortly thereafter, too.

If the stripers don't arrive in decent numbers this year, I know what I'll be doing.

Went to two different lakes, small males -large females starting to get a little friendly with each other.....Hmm, I wonder what that means.
They would not hit the worm I was tossing near them ,they would look at it , and just back away,...not showing any interest.
Things will improve within the next week or so.

Been doing the same, although for me and the cranberry bog ponds I've been lurking in a 2 lb bass is a trophy. The perch on the other hand are silly.
