Don't frett about the bass just yet they are just finhising there spawning the ones you see swimming about are the young ones. They are not actively feeding yet. I was out at White's Pond in Concord this morning my fav bass hole just wadeing around with spinning gear saw lots of bass moving but not hitting much.
Caught a couple of little of dinks smallies water temp was only 51 we still need about a week of warmer weather once the temp hits 58 to 60 bass will go nuts. I did however catch 2 nice rainbows on a pink roster tail about 14 inch I think they where left overs from last year.
If you can find the beds the bass are in try throwing a tube bait right on top of it
and just wiggle it but not to much this might trigger an anger strike from the female.
I live near Boston I do most of my fresh water fishing around here havn't been out your way in many many years. Used to get good brook trout in the swift river on fly rod. hope to talk to you again.
.......... I fish for the moment.............
Teach a kid to fish and they will teach thier's:)
