Hard Water Anglers Finally Happy

The recent cold snap has left many people shivering but the ice-fishing crowd could not be happier. Around the North Shore, ponds and lakes are offering up several species of hungry fish.

Sluice Pond in Lynn has yielded brown trout to anglers over the last week. Baldpate Pond in Boxford, as well as Four Mile Pond have also been hot for anglers braving the cold with pickeral and bass being caught in good numbers. Small shiners have been tripping the flags the most. Rock and Pentucket Ponds in Georgetown have also provided good action to hard water fishermen.

Plug Pond in Haverhill has been the scene of broodstock salmon catches to 7 pounds. In Merrimac, Lake Attitash has seen good action for largemouth bass from 1-3 pounds, again, mostly taken on shiners.

And remember, only 41 days until Spring!!
