    Summer 2019 New England Banter and Disco

    We have one in our neighborhood, it has an injured front-left paw and has a limp. The neighbors all said it has been around here for about 2-3 years. I have had 2 encounters with it since moving in but the dog has had more. Speaking of changing undies...his first time meeting the bear it was about 11pm and he was outside doing his last thing of the night. We had the windows and screen doors open and I heard a howl from him I had never heard before. At first I thought he came across a porcupine and feared it got him. I ran out our back slider, onto the deck, and began running down the steps. He met me on the deck steps going the opposite direction and immediately sat by the slider door shaking with his ears back. The bear was trotting through our back woods to get away. His one other confirmed encounter was similar but he spent the next 10-15 minutes shaking on the couch pretty terrified. Pretty happy he does not mess around with them but I rather he have that fear about coyotes than bears.

    Not too humid, mid-upper 80s and low 60s at night, I can deal with this. Our house never got above 75* today, was 63* this morning.

    Hoping the black flies stay away down here another week while the smallmouth are spawning on the Quabbin. It was almost unfishable due to a hatch of something in spots last weekend.

    Yea 63 here. I don't know if much will compare to the "swamp" that was last summer. Just haven't felt this yet really this spring.

    Another great spot. Why not make the quick hike up Monadnock? lol Goshen Fire Tower in DAR is another amazing spot. They actually still have an amazing scar trail from an F1/F2 from a few years ago through the park.

    A tornado warned cell in NY earlier. It's already so cool and breezy in western mass after 2 quick downpours I can't imagine how these stick together and bring much. What keeps them going?

    April Discussion

    Funny. I fished almost exclusively for trout for about 2-3 years. Then when I started bass fishing, come April, I caught more trout with 4-5" suspending jerkbaits than I ever did with "little trout lures" and Powerbait chunks. Given the all trebles its a bloody mess with scales everywhere though. Stafford and Wallum you could go 7-8 casts in a row with a rainbow if you hit a school.
