Trouting Around the 'Burbs
Left work an hour early yesterday and hit a little pond down the street from my house in Concord (not the one made famous by Thoreau). Second cast of a beaded bugger-like thing landed a nice bow. Two casts later another, etc... Ended up with 11 fish in about two hours. 5 of the fish appeared to be big holdover males with hooked jaws and everything. When I grabbed them (forgot a net) to release them they were full of milt as thought they were ready to spawn. The other 6 fish appeared to be fresh stockers. A couple of the holdovers were pushing 20 inches and the fresh ones were al in the 14-18 inch range. * fish came from my secret back cove and three were from the beach.
