Discover waterways in New Hampshire with interactive maps containing recent catches, fishing spots, and reports of the latest fishing activity.
Not much has changed in the last month. I continue to have success with deep crankbaits, jerkbaits, and spinnerbaits. I found a new area where I consistently catch ...more largemouth, which is near a set of two buoys that mark a shallow rocky flat that is somewhere south of Turtle Island near the eastern bank. You'll pass a red buoy first, then you'll come to the red/black set. It's an area with lots of boulders at the bottom.
Another consistent spot is the set of buoys near Triggs Island that extend almost all the way to the eastern bank. There are three red buoys in a line that extend out from Triggs, and the most eastern one is the spot. It's near shallower, rocky water (4-10 feet). I lost a nice one there this past weekend on a Zara Spook.
What I've also noticed is that the bigger bass who typically hang out near the entrance to Wiley Brook aren't holding there anymore. You'll still find them in the weedy cove there near the docks, but that's it. I'm not sure why they would move like that, but that's my observation. I want to try going back to Moose Point and Hersey Point next week to see what's happening there. I haven't tried those in a while.
I still haven't found that big smallmouth I'm looking for. I'm starting to think I should try a ned rig in the same areas where I'm drop-shotting. That might be my last chance before the camping season is over and I have to winterize the boat.
