1.0 lb. Largemouth Bass caught by John Wilson fishing in Goose Pond in New Hampshire on 05/23/09
12.0" / 1.0 lb. Largemouth Bass caught by John Wilson fishing on Saturday May 23, 2009 at 14:00 in Goose Pond near Enfield in Grafton County, New Hampshire (NH), United States North America using a worm and bobber tossed near shore from boat! a Worm

We only got one rock bass in two hours of trolling with spinners and worms, and various lures. It was starting to look pretty much like a bust for the day. Then we anchored and started casting lures in toward shore, and came up with the pickeral shown pretty fast using a floating Rapala. First time I've ever caught one! We moved a little, and lost one beauty when it got loose close to the boat -- a bass or trout, not sure -- then got another larger pickeral with another floating Rapala. Then we didn't get any more bites in that location so changed locations to another inlet, anchored again and started casting more floating Rapalas. We got one rock bass again with a floating Rapala, then nothing for a while. Then my son noticed a school of sunfish so we changed to worms and bobbers. That's how we got a whole bunch of sunfish and a few more rock bass, plus the nice largemouth bass right at the shoreline which was a big surprise. The school of sunfish made it a really fun day in the end for the kids. By the end, they were actually tired of catching fish. We ended up releasing most of them at the end of the day after they spent some time in the livewell, but saved the biggest for supper.
