Alford Pond in Hope
« on: Feb 25, 2013, 04:36 PM »
Me and my buddies were thinking of fishing Alford pond in hope. We was wondering if anyone had any tips on where to fish, what for bait, or anything that could help us. We just want to catch some browns and I've been told that's a good place to go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If you go bring smelts for bait that place is full of them.

"Waldoboro resident Jared Simmons caught the biggest fish, a 10.02-pound brown trout, at Alfred Lake in Hope.

The lifelong fisherman said he hooked the fish, his biggest catch ever, around 7 a.m. and landed it with help from his brother after a 30-minute fight. "

if you know anyone with a pic i'd love to see that beast

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did so. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

Those were the only two fish we caught all day. My buddy was shaking like crazy when he caught the bigger one. It took him like 10 minutes to land it he just wouldnt come up through the hole
