Killing It On Damariscotta Lake, Maine

Recommended Posts

Me and the fam took a 7 day vacation to the lake. Rented a rustic 1930s cabin on the lake... We had to take showers outside..., but me and my son had the best outing of the year. I Never caught smallmouth before, and neither did my son. That all changed to a point where I was getting kind of bored of catching them... Sorta not really. Must of caught close to thirty including the ones I lost at the boat, and I didn't even fish everyday. Only caught 3 Laaaargies, but they were nice once. My son caught his first Small mouth, and his PB Lmb at 3lbs 10oz. His Zebco rod and reel handled it pretty well. All he was using was a Zman Shroomz jig with a Rage Tail Menace grub. They same with me, 90% of the fish I caught were on a VMC half moon shakey head with a Rage Tail Menace grub including 2 of the three Lmb. I think @Big-Oshould open a Rage Tail Menace store at this lake cause they were getting eaten up.

Here are some pics.

My son's PB Lmb on the boat.

My biggest Lmb of the trip at 4lbs. Caught her right before my son caught his in the same spot.

The other 2 Lmb I caught, oddly they both weighed in at 2lbs 9oz, and they are 2 different fish... They look bigger. I notice the Lmb seem to be longer up there than they are here in Jersey.

Here are a few of the small jaws I caught.

My first ever Small jaw caught on a baby bass Spook Jr off the dock at the Cabin:

The rest were all pretty much caught with the aforementioned shakey head and Menace grub off the boat.

My Second:

There were allot more pics, but these were the larger Small mouth. All in all the best fishing off the year for me and my boy.

I think its great you're taking your son fishing. Passing down the enjoyment of the outdoors is one of the greatest gifts we can give to the youth of America. BTW that first pic is a bruiser. Congrats.

It's been great watching him develop his technique while we were there. He knows how to hop a jig like a pro now.

Thats awesome! The lake is great place to fish and theres some really big bass in it. Passing down the fishing bug is always a precious moment, and to see your son with that bigger bass,.. is a pic I'd frame for the mantle if I were you.
