Thanks for the sponsor ship.  I'll be sure to stop by if I'm ever in the neighborhood.  But to be honest, I couldn't put a pin in a map for Westford even for a hundred free Goldies.  Must be what we call around here "Down near Boston somewhere". :)

New to the shanty, but I have been getting bait from Tom the past few winters. Always has great shiners, and added a few 40 ups to my collection from Tom. Great to see the sponsorship!

Stopped by Tom's and got a styrofoam liner for 5 gal bucket. No more freezing bait water. I got a few dozen shiners while there as well. I was impressed with some of the equipment available there. Will definitely be back. Thanks!
Suit up and show up!

The shop hours will stay the same till ice out. let your name be known if your on Shanty ,like to put a face with a name. Don,t forget the Long pond Derby. Have plenty of 4 1/2" to 6" shiners. Plus other sizes. Plenty of ice for awhile and a warm sun, makes it fun take the kids. Myself grand kids.

If I make it by I'll be sure to do so.  I am more active on the NH forum, but I work on the Mass side of the border and try to sneak out every so often in the mornings when I can before work.  Thinking of trying my luck at Long Sought For Pond. If I make it I'll stop by either on my way out or my way back. Thanks
