Oh, Charlestown pond!

I know the pond pretty well, I have just never heard of Wards Island.

Anyway, buffies and blacks! That, for the most part, is what's in Charlestown pond.

Well im glad someone knows the area besides me. But ya thats what i figured, alot of divers and blacks. From what i remember fishing back there for stripers, it was a pretty walkable hunting area, not much of a need for a boat. How did you set up to hunt the area?

I don't hunt the pond that much.

I know a lot of guys who do. Most guys have smaller john boats, or even a kayak or canoe would do.

The pond is fairly shallow for the most part. I think most of the pond is lonly like 4-6 feet deep.
