Quabbin local looking for fishing partner

Recommended Posts

So...I'm new to this forum and I'm looking for someone to fish quabbin with.  I preferr you know it and have a bass boat.  I have been fishing there for 18 years from there rental boats and am tired of the small motors and leaky boats.  I'll show you what I know.  You show me what you do.  I am pretty dedicated to Quabbin. I fish for both species and continue to fish throughout the summer there.  Ask me more.  I fish as often as possible...but always always one weekend day.  Anyone want to learn quabbin??  You have to dedicate your boat to the seal....or pay for half the rentals.

Wish I lived closer. The last time I was there I got a 6.9 smallie on a topwater, that was in 2016

Welcome to the forum.  Follow this thread: 

 

A bunch of us on this thread fish the Quabbin a few times a year.  Some know it well.  I can’t help you with a boat, but then again, I don’t mind the state’s slow, leaky boats....

There’s a handful of guys on here with Quabbin rigs - maybe one of them will reach out to you.  I usually fish it a half dozen or so times a year from a rental- I’ve done pretty well and have learned a lot about the reservoir over the past few years.  Awesome place to fish, just hate the boat and horsepower restrictions.  I recently bought a bass boat that is too big and fast for the quabbin, so my trips out there will probably decrease by quite a bit.. maybe one of my buddies will bites the bullet and invest in a cheap quabbin boat, that would be cool 😎.
