Finally a bait store close to home!! I've fished all the local ponds around the area for over 40 years. Hasn't been a good tackle shop in the area since Bob's closed years ago in Chelmsford. I would like to know where the lakes are? They may say lost lake but that's the back side of Knopps pond.

Glad to hear this place is still up and running. I'm planning on a trip this weekend, barring there is ice.

The ice at Long Sought was roughly 6-8"

I only ended up drilling 5 holes, and jigged up a lot of perch and pickerel.

Have you heard anyone else mention the number of small pickerel being caught there?
Almost every pickerel I caught was 10-12" long. The one decent bass I caught was skinny.

I know they had this issues years back and did something about it, but was curious it it's happened again?

How thick do you think out in the middle of the basin? In roughly 20 FOW?
