Quabbin Reservoir June 2011

Up at 4am this morning and on the road by 4:45am. One of my favorite things to to was done today.

Quabbin Reservoir June 2011
Today was the first trip this season to Quabbin Reservoir. Wikipedia has a great write up on this special place. It can be hard to go on this trip too much during the season because:
-It is reasonably far away
-It is a FULL day to operate a boat for the entire trip, pulling up anchors, setting wind drifts, etc. It takes a ton out of me!

At the Quabbin you can see Bald Eagles soaring and nesting in the trees on many of the islands. We have seen otters here, deer on the shores, numerous wild turkeys, and hummingbirds! A real outdoor bonanza.

As far as fishing goes, it is the best this state has in freshwater. Unreal beauty and a shot at some huge fish. Even if I don't catch anything though, I have a great time. OK, enough writing, my hands are killing me from pulling up the anchor line!

Looking out past the bow of the boat at the Reservoir and a bunch of the islands (click any picture for larger view):

At one point we stopped for a bathroom break (they have toilets placed at certain places for use) and got this cool shot of the waves coming ashore:

On an early stop I was rewarded with this bruiser smallmouth in 20 feet of water:
Senko lure, drop it all the way to the bottom and BOOM!

A little later in the same area, Mrs. Disconnect scored a very nice fish:
She is becoming quite the angler.

The strong sun and heavy wind made most spots hard to fish, so we had to stick to close in to the islands to keep out of the wind gusts. Caught a bunch of small fish, fun but not picture worthy. On one of the last stops I set up a drift using the wind and picked up this great colored smallie, big one too:
Very nice. You can see my portable fish finder in the background of this shot.

A fun day but I am exhausted and my left arm is still vibrating from using the outboard motor! Time to chill out and get ready for tomorrow, which is stocking up day for the Saturday big cookout.

Added:
Like clockwork, any day out on a boat I both cannot sleep and new opportunities come up! In any case, here is KLF's "3am Eternal" as a side note:


Have a good night.

Watchtower said...

Nice fish.

Can't believe you were wearing jackets with it being late June, it was about 95 degrees here with a crap load of humidity thrown in.
I guess you've earned it with the winters you have to go thru.

getyourselfconnected said...

Watchtower,
it was 80 degrees but the wind was so nasty you had to be covered!

I wish I had visited the Quabbin Reservoir when I lived in MA, your pictures are gorgeous. Glad you had such a nice day!
