I’ve been reading several of your older blogs about fishing the Androscoggin River. They are excellent. Detailed, thoughtful and well-written. Thank you so much!
Thank you for sharing your experiences about ice fishing for white perch on Panther Pond in Raymond. With your information I was able to find parking on Giselle lane and locate some nice white perch. The walk in was a good hike to where I finally located the perch. I think I went in a bit further than you did. I see that you also posted about bass fishing and accessing Panther Pond via David Plummer Road. I am going back looking for the perch again in hopes that the David Plummer Road access might be a shorter walk in. Thanks again for sharing all your experiences.
Thanks for the great information about bass-fishing ponds in southern Oxford County! A couple of lovely evenings of bass fishing from my kayak were enjoyed, thanks to you sir.
Hello, I wanted to say that I think your blog is really great, informative and I read it a ton for tips and the sweet catches you land! Thank you.
I truly enjoy reading your blog, and as somebody who is relatively new to Maine, I appreciate your generosity in sharing information about the locations where you fish. Thanks!
I just stumbled upon your site and am very thankful for the information. You can find us fishing just about anywhere from the sea, lakes, ponds, rivers, and streams. I’m always interested in learning and you have provided a great resource! Looking forward to trying some new spots. Wishing you tight lines!
Hi, My husband and I are new to Maine (life-long NH residents) and were struggling our first few weeks trying to find the kind of secluded lakes/ponds we are so familiar with in NH. Most lakes/ponds we were finding were CLUTTERED with houses and jet skis and motor boats. We are kayakers who like to just fish and relax. We found your blog and tried Boyd Pond and were like “this is it”. Thank you and we are looking forward to the other places you talk about in your blog “Eight fabulous largemouth bass ponds in York County, Maine“.
Your blog is so full of great information on fishing locations but also tackle and techniques. Thank you so much!
Great adventure on Nesowadnehunk Stream in Baxter State Park! One of my favorite things to do! I really enjoy reading your stories/fishing reports!
Thanks so much for your Amazing blog! I have learned a lot from reading your posts and my fishing has certainly improved, particularly through the ice.
Hi, I love your blog and learn a ton from it. Thanks!
Thanks for all your tips. I will certainly use some of them this year. I fish only fresh water for largemouth bass. Thanks again!
I’ve been following this blog for some time now… and I’m never disappointed, but continuously jealous. Wonderful, and please keep sharing the wonderful experiences. Still hope to make it there one day!
Appreciate your wonderful reports as always, Stan.
Stan, you blog ROCKS!!! I couldn’t get enough of reviewing it on my travels. Seriously, it is just awesome, and I can’t wait to find local spots near my camp.
Thank you for sharing your trolling experiences. We are planning to troll on Toddy Pond, Orland, Maine this weekend. Hopefully, we can experience a bigger catch and better trolling experience by applying some of your techniques and using your advice about trolling for brook trout on ponds and lakes: 14 tips to increase your catch.
Thank you for sharing your experience and advice. This is the first site that works well for me, enjoyable read and to the point, and things are dated which is my biggest problem with most internet reads, not knowing when it was written, which is often important. You have improved my fishing strategies and I sincerely thank you.
Your article is the best I have ever seen on trolling for brook trout!!
Thanks for your lively, regular updates. It makes me feel like I’m on the Androscoggin River more than just during our two August weeks each year in Maine.Thanks again for your faithful postings and please keep them coming.
Really enjoyed your article. Nice fish and well written.
Thanks for your reports. I’ve been enjoying them thoroughly. It takes a generous fisherman to share his secrets!
I just wanted to thank you for what you do on this blog. I’ve used some of you blog posts to find “secret” shore access, which has been great…and I love that you share what rig/bait/lures worked for you. I’m hoping to build a lot of great daddy-daughter memories with my little girl, and your site is helping me do that. I know keeping a site up is a lot of work…I wanted to make sure you knew that is has an impact on us!
Absolutely love reading your articles, which take my jealousy to new highs! Happy fishing my friend!
Thanks so much for the info. I come up to Maine every June, for 26 years now, and finding good info on small foot-accessible ponds is really difficult. I am near Echo lake, where I used to have some fantastic fishing, but it seems to have dried up the last couple of years, at least where I go, so I am looking for new places. Again, thanks so much for your blog, I find it all really helpful!
Stumbled across your blog this winter. It’s my new favorite!
Fantastic story! I was very pleased to come across this blog as my fiance and I are fishing there this weekend. Well done and we definitely appreciated the details, tips, and humor. Thank you!
Stan, I’m absolutely addicted to your Amazing Fish-a-Metric website! I enjoy reading every one of your blogs. Of course, there’s a high level of jealousy involved as well!!
My wife and I are planning our first visit to Maine. We both love to fish and we have friends in Winthrop and Norridgewock. Our friend in Norridgewock has a house right on the Kennebec. I really enjoyed your blog. We live in Connecticut. Thanks for the insight and heads up on the fishing!
I’ve been following your site for a couple years now and I think it’s great. I’ve tried a lot of new waters because of your reports. Thanks.
Your blogs provide some really great information. Thank you!
Hello! I just wanted to say that I love your website! It’s helped me out big time since coming to school in Maine.
Thanks Stan, I always like to check in with someone who knows. I love your site. It provides a lot of helpful info. My fly rod always goes with me so I’ll be hoping for a warm spring. Thanks again!
Great blog entry. Thanks for sharing, and congrats to the young ones who caught their share of “eating fish.” I miss having the opportunity to ice fish, living in Virginia. But I appreciate the opportunity to live vicariously through your adventures.
Hi Stan, I was on Savade Pond this morning and saw you out there. I kept saying to myself, that’s gotta be the guy from the blog, he’s doing everything that the blog says to do! We laughed and thought it was funny, but it was you! Thanks for all the tips, I read them all and use them with success.
Totally awesome fishing!! Love reading about your experiences!
Hi! Just wanted to say THANK YOU for providing these articles and information. Wanting to do more fishing and not having a mentor other than reading, trial and error, I find your web site to be a great resource and motivational to getting out there!
Stan – wanted to leave a quick message thanking you for your posts and insight. Your attention to detail and willingness to share knowledge clearly accumulated through years of pursuing a passion for angling is much appreciated by the fishing community. Keep up the great work and perhaps we’ll cross paths on the water someday.
Your blog often fills in important gaps in my fishing technique and destination research. Maine fishermen are lucky to have your help to sort out which of the myriad of waters in Maine to fish!
Great blog! I just found your site and bookmarked it. I love your motto (If I fish it, I blog about it!), so many fishing blogs are not kept up to date.
I had fun reading your report “Ten fabulous largemouth bass ponds in southern Oxford County” as I have fished every one of these ponds. In one of them this summer I caught my biggest Maine bass (8 pounds)!!
Hi, I just found your site. Awesome! I live in the Portland area, and it is hard for me to get away for long fishing trips. I’ve been looking for info on places within 60-90 minutes of town, and until now I was always skunked (ever noticed how most fishermen don’t like to share data on good places?). Many thanks. Your blog is terrific!
I’m glad I stumbled upon this blog. I ride my ATV around Wards Pond quite a bit and always wondered if it held fish. I looked over some of your other posts and they were very helpful as well. Thanks for a good blog about local fishing spots.
Thanks for all the work you do with the blog. It’s turned into one of my favorite tools to decide which pond to try next.
You guys are doing a great job; enjoying every bit of your site! Thanks for sharing!
Hi, came upon your website by chance, and love it by the way. I fish for bass from a kayak and am always looking for new out of the way spots to try. Keep up the good work!
I loved all the information on your blog! I found it all helpful to me. Some of it was new and some of it was a refresher, which is just as good. So, thank you and please keep sharing your wisdom. Much appreciated.
Hello, I just wanted to say thank you for taking the time to make these blogs! My son and I are new to bass fishing and I love your reviews of these ponds, whereas I’m not too familiar with different fishing spots. So keep up the great work and thank you!
Your blog is great, simple, informative, and relatable. Thanks!!
Stan, Thank you very much for your bass ponds blogs. I’d driven by Moose Pond several times but never stopped to fish. Today I followed your advice and Wow!! I lost count after about 10 bass but I think I caught about two dozen in a little over four hours. It’s been years since I’ve caught that many fish in such a short amount of time. Thank you. I plan on hitting the other ponds on your list soon.
Hi, I found your blog on fishing in Maine; love the no non-sense approach! Thank you.
My 16-year old son and I found your website to be very informative and helpful. We plan on hitting each of the ponds in your blog titled “Eight Fabulous Largemouth Bass Ponds in York County” before the end of the summer. We are always looking for places like these to put our inflatable in. Thanks again for doing the research and providing us with the results.
Stan, just discovered your website yesterday. Great writing and tips! Thanks for this site!
I love how you provide a map for each pond with a slight description! It was very helpful and insightful! Thanks for sharing!
I just wanted to thank you for the work you’ve put into your web site and, in particular, the 8 fabulous largemouth bass ponds in York County that you listed. I recently moved to southern Maine and have been exploring the area for bass sports. I’ve fished 5 out of the 8 ponds and have not yet been disappointed!
This is an interesting website if you are a fisherman or woman. Some amazing information on this site.
I love the information you share on the trout stocking in Kennebec county because most of the brook trout ponds listed are close to my home! I will be sure to get my kayak on some of those ponds. I am a fly fisher and hopefully I will have some good days on the water.
Hey there, whoever is reading this, I really want to thank you for your blog. Maine is a great state with a lot of water to fish, and having previews of where I’m going is really awesome. Your article about the 8 fabulous largemouth bass ponds in York County has me itching for ice out! I’m planning on buying a kayak soon and knowing that I have some small ponds to explore has me pumped for warmer weather. So anyway, thanks for doing this blog! I just subscribed. Happy fishing!
I love this website you have created, almost everything written on here I have proven myself. Keep up the good work.
