I'm not surprised Comet pond still has ice on it. Whalom lake in Lunenburg still had some ice on it last monday when I drove my kids to day care, its all gone now.
Sorry I can't give you a good fishing report. Ok , I did get a pickeral on wednesday on a black bead head wooly bugger in a pond on fort Devens. I've been busy with yard work and todays only fishing related thought was picking up worms to take the son out with.
Just a thought, since you've been in the wachusset reservoir area and you have a canoe West Washacum pond in Sterling, might be a good place to try.
