Hunting the "Nip"

Postby rifleman » Wed Aug 06, 2014 4:28 am

:help: Plan on hunting the Nip in Bridgewater this year with a bunch of RI guys. We are mostly retired Navy guys. We have a couple of larger duck boats and are concerned about navigating the shallow parts of the lake. We will be bass fishing there a couple of times over the next several weeks. Any suggestions on what to look out for would be appreciated. Seems to be alot of public land on the back side of the lake. I would imagine too that it ices up early. Hopefully not until late November. :fingerhead:

The Nip is a popular location. There is quite a few rock piles across the pond. Definitely scout it out and use a good chart plotter in the dark to follow previous tracks. We have had a duck water 25 in there several times.
