We fished Neponset Reservoir today for the seventh stop on this year’s trail. We had 12 anglers show up, which was great considering the forecast.
Luckily there were no thunderstorms, though rain probably would have been nice. It was pretty hot out there. Definitely not as hot as expected, though, thanks to a strong breeze.
Plenty of fish were caught today, but it was a dinkfest in general, which is somewhat typical of Neponset. In between all those dinks, however, some guys found the bigger fish.
Chris Diranian found five good ones for a total of 71.5 inches, which put him in the winner’s circle at third place.
Edward Neely reeled in 77 inches of bass, anchored by a 19.5-inch slob. Both good enough for second place and lunker.
Late in the day, Evan McCarthy tied on a Whopper Plopper and launched a Hail Mary cast, hooked up, and then tossed it some more. It paid off. All that whopping and plopping was like a dinner bell to some of the bigger fish buried down in the weeds. He took first place—and back-to-back victories—with 77.5 inches.
Good work, fellas! Congrats!
As always, thanks for coming out, everyone. Good to see some new faces out there as well.
The next tournament is on August 27 at Dudley Pond.
