Silk Mill Pond Conservation Area, Canton, MA

The Silk Mill Pond Conversation Area is a small little pond hidden away in a neighborhood in Canton. According to my sources, there is a guy that lives by that stocks the pond with bass every year. It doesn't really matter to me where the fish come from, as long as they're in the pond. Since it's a small pond, don't expect to find any monster bass in there but it is a good spot to go cast a few and try out different baits.

It gets pretty deep in the middle so if you want to use a deep running crank bait or lets a swim bait sink a little deeper, you should be able to pull out a few. Most of my success has come from working the lilly pads against the eastern shore along Old Shephard St.  The weeds are pretty thick tho so you'll have a tough time getting ur bait down to the fish.  Instead, fishing the edges of the lilly pads will allow you to get the bait to their level and within their range.

There's really not much else to say about this pond.  It's small, stocked with bass, and pretty secluded.

Successful Bait: Worms- Watermelon,  Black & Yellow, Pumpkin seed w/ Red Flakes.  Small segmented swim bait.
