Well spring has finally come to New England and the open water season is underway. At least for southern New England most if not all waters are ice free but there still may be some ice in the northern regions. Many anglers have been venturing out already searching for their fish species of choice.

We are no different and my fishing partner is set on catching some pickerel this early season and wanted to try his hand at it. There is a reservoir not far from our home and is a shallow town water supply and this place is loaded with pickerel. Have only fished there a couple of times, and have been noticing that the size is on the smaller part but for a kid that doesn’t matter.

Oh to have spring days once again and to see the open waters of our favorite lakes and ponds once again. Sad to see the ice leave but many of us are ready to bring on the open water season and that is where you are going to see us from now on.

The decisions we have to make when picking out the first few spring trips is always a mind boggling thing but a choice was made and off to the lake I head. Fishing during the week has a few advantages and the main one is you don’t have to deal with much traffic on the water.

Spring is definitely in the air and fishing in the boat once again is a great experience and when the weather cooperates as this day, what else should we be doing. Weather was suppose to be near 70 and calm winds but the morning had the calm winds but afternoon the winds kicked up pretty good.

Fished the same lake as last time and decided that with the water temps in the upper 40’s that I would spend my time covering as much water as possible. So with one rod having lipless rattling bait and the other a shallow diving crankbait, I would be able to move quickly along and search for active fish.

Massachusetts has school vacations twice a year and this was the week that the kids were home and wanted to take my son out once again. The winds have been blowing strongly once again but he has fishing on his mind and wants to put a few pickerels onto his line as well.

So we headed over to the pickerel pond to give his hand a try and he was not disappointed in the action as usual. The wind seems to always blow into this shoreline but that seems to help the bite and keeps the bait moving all the time. This seems to be the ticket for getting bites and after a slow start the action definitely picked up quickly.

With a very warm trend that has passed through the New England area, figured that the waters were warming nicely and decided to head to New Hampshire and see what the fish were doing. Fishing during the week has a few benefits as the lake in general is vacant from boat traffic and allows you to fish where you want without fighting the crowds that do frequent this lake often.

Arrived at the lake early and the water was like glass as there was no wind, the sun was shining but winds were suppose to get strong later. The lake is at full pool and actually may be a little higher than normal at this point. Motoring away from the landing the water temperatures were reading the upper 50’s and this was no surprise and hoping for a good day of fishing.

With the weather lately being iffy at best my son wanted to go fishing again but didn’t want to go in the boat with possible storms coming through. So we headed to a pond to try some fishing and anything that wants to bite is on the agenda. He wants to fish for one species one day and another a different day, but today was about just catching fish and didn’t matter which ones.

We started off at a pond that we ice fish a lot at and there is a beach area that makes for easy shoreline access. My son is really into fishing with minnows now and after baiting him up and casting the lines out, wasn’t long and the bites were coming. But these fish weren’t taking the minnows enough to get hooked and a number of fish were missed and the action died after that.

Since we are into the month of May there is a lake that I usually frequent that has good numbers of smallmouth and largemouth bass. At this time of year the fish are starting to cruise the shorelines and decided it was time to get the kayak out and venture around and see what we could find. There is no access for motor boats here so small water craft is the name of the game here.

Was a beautiful day with light winds, sunny skies and temps in the 60’s as well. There were already a few out fishing and scattered around so no one is near each other while they search for their secret spots. I had decided that I was going to concentrate on a shoreline that has produced well for me in the past and hopefully there will be some big girls swimming around these areas.

Another beautiful day in store for New England and my little fishing partner was biting at the bit to wet a line again. Decided to try our hand once again shore fishing and he wanted to see if he could catch another big bass. So we arrive at that pond once again and there are numbers of people already there fishing. Was lucky to get the last open area and started fishing like he generally does with big shiners in search of big fish. Didn’t take long and the fish were biting in this spot as well with a few small pickerel coming in and one very nice perch.
