Date: April, 2018
Location: Fishing Spot: Whitehall Reservoir, Hopkinton, Massachusetts
Weather: Overcast, some wind but not a gale at least. The tolling motor got a workout.
Air Temperature: Low 50’s
Water Temperature: 40-42 degrees (chilly!)
I had zero expectations of catching any fish today it all. The entire reason I was out at this time of year was that I had cabin fever… I’d just picked up my boat from winter storage and needed to get it out onto the water to make sure it would run and operate as expected when I needed it for a tournament later in the month 🙂
My boat ran great even in the cold water conditions and I was pleased by that. I did not actually catch any fish on this trip. However, I was able to spend some time over in the deeper sections of the reservoir that I’d typically not been able to in the past. There were only a couple of other boats out which was nice as there was a lot of freedom to roam around and sit in areas where there’s typically a fair amount of boat traffic. I made a lot of mental notes as to where new drops and rock piles etc. were that I’d not known of before.
No fish but lots of information gained so it was a worthwhile trip for sure !
