I arrived at the pond Brook state launch at 630.
There were several boat trailers in the lot, but no boat traffic in sight except for one.
I started off fishing a wack rigged 5 inch watermelon senko in the shallow area to the right of the launch. I was getting multiple hits and then a monster jumped on the line. It took me for a ride for about a minute and then I lost it at the side of my yak. I was about discouraged as possible and wanted to leave right then.

However I pushed on and quickly brought in a nice lmb on a watermelon flake tube.

There was tins of fish activity on the surface and below, and I worked the shoreline from both sides, mainly with the tube and senko, but also trying a buzz bait along the way.

I ran into the lone boater who had mentioned he brought in a nice 3.5lb lmb on a jitter bug topwater bait. He was on his way to the launch and said he is coming back tonight around 1am for an all night fish outing.

I continued through pond Brook and fished the first residential dock on the left for a while. This nabbed me 2 lmb, one was a good size, the other a dink.

I paddled my way to the first set of channel markers and fished that area for a while.

After not having any luck there, I turned around slowly made my way towards the launch. I switched to a biffle bug plastic lure, which I weighed down with a nail weight. This style lure seemed to catch the attention of some fish towards the shallow edges, but I was only able to bring two to the boat.

I was about 100 yards from the launch when I guy came up to me with some curiosity about my kayak.. Little did I know it was a guy I was stationed with in the Coast Guard years ago. We had a nice conversation, wished each other well and off we went.

I got to the launch at 11am and there were multiple boats preparing to launch.

Nice morning overall
