Kings Pond near Raynham Center, Massachusetts
Okay, I have to say that I grew up on this pond for 18 years. From when I was 3 to 21('72-'91). Probably nobody has fished this pond as much as I have even though its been 20 years. From shore and from boat I used evrything and anything. Drop line to bait caster. So here's the deal. The water is shallow and has alot of iron in it. I never had much luck with live bait because all the sunfish,calico and cats will pounce on it. Those fish would be of good size too. And a fun day can be had for kids just catching them with worms,gypsy moth catapilars,bread, hotdogs,bologna. Crazy! but never had luck with those jarred salmon eggs or marshmellow things. But you got to get off the dam and around the bend to where the river comes in. Dont waist your time with those big fancy spinners. For pickerel use a red devil,castmaster or mepps/blue fox type spinner. The bass like a hulapopper (and how fun is that at night listening for the hit)but use it slow,like 15 second between chugs. Some crankbaits are good but get a floater kind (and not too big)as its shallow. What worked best was a 6" purple jelly worm with a orange curl tail. Its murky and they really jump on that lure. Once again a slow real in is how to get them. Dont real in anything steady unless its a spinner or a spoon. Cast a jelly worm and let it drop till the line is taught with your rod up at 12 o'clock. Then pull it in about a foot at a time with little tuggs. And cast in the little fingers of the weeds and grass. Theres not much else. For a 2 to 3 hour trip you should get atleast 5 to 10 bass/pickerel between 2 guys. Ranging from 1 lbs to 4 lbs. There are bigger. Caught on a mister twister shad (silver) and an old thin spoon shaped crank bait. 8 and 6 lbs respectably. When it gets slow and you've spooked all the big ones. Hit the middle with little mister twisters with a bobber about 1ft of lead. And catch a boat load of crappie (hey they do hit pretty hard, then they quit, but it can be fun). I never caught anything big in the middle. The bass and pickerel like hidding in the weeds and coming out after it. Also there is some yellow and white pearch which is nice to see...and dont put your fish on a chain or rope in the water. The absolutely giant snappers (trash can lid size) will eat them. You'll see the bubbles coming and going. Stick to the mornings and early evening. Not much durring the day unless it just rained. On another thought....dont bother. Go somewhere else!
