Tried the Bellamy Reservior in Madbury to see if the chain pickerel had warmed up enough to chase a plug. There was still ice is some places.
|Looking north of Rt. 9|
We saw a small flock of tree swallows go by and there was a large flock of gulls on the iceflow by the island.
|Many, many, many gulls.|
Used a shiny 4 inch Bomber, figuring the bright sunlight would create a nice flash.
|Seemed like a good lure for predatory pickerel.|
We did not catch a chain pickerel, but got into some nice Northern Spring Nofish.

|We should organize a Catch-M-All clean up here.|
We stopped by Taylor's Trading Post in Madbury and got a good tip on a fishing spot in the Merrimack River. We'll report if the tip pans out.
