So today when my wife went shopping with our future daughter-in-law for her wedding dress I knew where I was going. It was such a beautiful day with the temperature around 80, little to no wind and no humidity I made my way to Spot Pond. The state of MA rents kayaks, canoes and sail boats at Spot Pond. LL Bean also has a program that allows people to rent kayaks.
Spot Pond is 340 acres and here is some additional info about this wonderful treasure ignored by most people: SPOT POND
|This is one of the islands that is scattered throughout the pond.|
I paddled my way toward one of the islands that I have seen from afar for so many years. I always wondered what it would be like to fish the points of the island and today was the day after all this time I would find out.
|I had my radio tuned to Boston sports talk radio and my fishing pole ready.|
I had several small bass chase the lure but there were no takers. I switched to a Kast Master but it didn't get any interest at all either. I decided to go to another part of the pond so I headed north.

As I was making my way to the island where I was planning on tossing some hardware, I saw a group of people in kayaks with the LL Bean guides.
|I am heading to the left to fish.|
|I was positive I was going to find a small-mouth bass here.|
The rocky shore and drop off seemed like a great place for smallmouth bass to hang out. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to find any fish. I fished for about 20 minutes here and then decided to head back.
|I decided to stop one more time and take a few casts.|
I had an absolute blast and I believe that a kayak is in my future. I plan to use it on several rivers to do some trout fishing and perhaps on a pond or two also.
I am hoping that I can convince my wife to join me here next week.
