Fishing from my Wavewalk in the First Week of Summer – Part 3 of 3

The remainder of the first week was spent in Cape Cod, Massachusetts. The Cape is rich with small lakes and ponds which just don’t seem to get much fishing pressure, perhaps because most people are focused on the salt water.

I stayed inland and pursued the bass.  All week I was catching 2, 3 and 4 pounders. The fishing was just astounding as the bass smashed Wacky Worms and Frog Imitations in water that was often less than 6 inches deep.

First, a few shots of the typical catch that week:

A 3 Pounder in the Weeds

A really fat beauty!

Then there were the 2 outstanding fish. First, the unusual:

A tug on the "tongue" and we get the picture.

Maybe we should all be using bigger lures?

Then came the fish of summer…

This was a big, big largemouth.

The "tale of the tape" says a fraction over 22 inches!

And here is the nose to tail. The with of the measuring board is 5 inches. She hangs over both top and bottom!

I estimate this monster weighed between 5 1/2 and 6 pounds. Best week of fishing I’ve ever had. All the bass were released unharmed.
