Has anyone been out after them East of the river the last two days? Iím trying to decide where to fish this afternoon, safety being priority number one.

Thanks,

Mashapaug was MOBBED yesterday. I didnít fish it just drove down to check out the scene. Dozens of cars parked in Bigelow Pond parking to walk down to the big lake.

The ice on that lake scares the bejeezus out of me but itís probably safe on the well trafficked areas. Use extreme caution if you venture out to the right side past the channel when I fished it about 2 weeks ago there was 9-10Ē in the channel and only 4Ē on the right side.

Thank you very much for that. I figured Mash would be safe but itís an hour from me and I donít know any spots there. Iím headed for a ride now and if Mash is the only game in town, Iíll fish it.

Hit Beach 2 days ago and had 5 inches but not great ice. Gardner had better ice a few days ago but I was there Thursday.

I was on Gardner Wed. night and the ice was good. I measured over 6Ē at my holes. Flags were flying early but it died once it got dark. Not sure how it faired during the warmup.

Nice work guys.  My night exploits have been focused over the border in mass. Crappie bite is good. No slush spots!

I guess your spot is better than mine. I fished into dark for them too last night and it went completely dead after the sun went down
The BIG one is just one flag away!

Species caught : largemouth, smallmouth,  bluegill, perch, White perch, crappie, trout, catfish, bowfin, pickerel, pike

Fished Mt Tom yesterday (2/15) a few other groups with trout by the beach I fished the cove for eye's but nothing, no flags, nothing with jigs, fished until dark. Ice was good, solid again, edges strong with 8 to10 inches in the cove. hope the weather holds.

Thats happened to me a few times on Hatch.  Great bite then dead.  Green light helps a bunch but after some A B testing I learned the crappies were still feeding, just mich shallower than I was fishing.

Most of my trips lately are at night, welcome to join me anytime.

I've seen slime darts abused too, but today I was really disgusted- someone out on Roiseland left a 16" LMB and a 14" trout on the ice in one spot, and a 10" perch at another hole. Let them go if you aren't going to keep them!

Unfortunate. These are the people that I report to environmental protectionÖ total scum bags. Itís animal abuse and a complete waste of a life. There isnít really any excuse for it. I rarely keep fish, almost always practice catch and release, but if I catch a trout that swallows the hook and dies I will gladly grill it up for dinner. No excuse to leave it on the ice.

Yes sir.  They work nice after dark.  Can illuminate them pretty well too.

I wish I knew who did it- they looked a couple days old at least. If they were fresh I would have grabbed them :-/

I might just have to do that Jon. Extended forecast is actually getting cooler again. Hopefully we get another month before the ice gets too beat up

Wow, you aren't kidding Ryan. We're in weird pattern of really warm for two days followed by several days of nice and cold, then really warm for another two days. Not complaining of course.

Its a good time.  Went last night but didnt deploy the green light.  Results undesirable.
