Jimdogg Voted Fisherman of the Year for 2011
Winter Meeting Just Perfect!
In a stunning landslide first vote, Jimdogg comes away with coveted trophy. "I don't know what I did to deserve this." said Jimdogg. "But belly up everyone, I'm buying!" Jimdogg beat out Rock Bottom, Cindy of the DUO and the River Captain to gain the BMBC top spot. A large crowd attended this years festivities in honor of Hank, our most senior member who passed away recently. He will be sorely missed.
"Thanks to everyone that voted for me! I am honored." said Jimdogg. "And I can't wait for the winter meeting to hold "My" trophy."
Rock Bottom and Captain G-No Congratulate Jimdogg for his contributions to the Bite Me
2010 Goes out with a bang for Jimdogg!
Monster Large Mouth!
We weren't sure what the ice conditions were going to be when we started out at 6AM from Anita Maries in Rockland Center. The air was crisp and cold. We were sure there would be enough ice to let us fish and we were right. 6-8 inches of solid, hold all 4 of us in the same area, ice was a welcome relief. Shortly after setting out 1/2 the gear Elmer scored a nice 2lb fish and our hopes were soaring. But like most of our trips we get one in the first few minutes and then nothing. Well we got only three bass this day but they all were nice. Up went a flag near Jimdogg and he out hustled Elmer to be 1st man in so Elmer grabbed the camera and captured the moment for posterity! The fish came up rather quickly and this is why!
Looks like a big pickerel bite or maybe turtles.
Jimdogg doing his thing!

Jimdogg keeps up a torrid pace
Kayaks and large mouth bass a cool combination.
Great day on the Charles River for Jimdogg as he lands two big largemouth bass.
The fish weighed in at 5lbs 6ozs and 4lbs 2ozs.
A cool crisp late summer morning and the fishing was good. We were fishing the Dedham stretch, from Lyons Street downstream for about a mile. Water levels were low and the current wasn't too strong. Even with a brisk wind we had no trouble negotiating our way. "I was very fortunate to get these two beauties." said Jimdogg. "They were hanging out next to structure at the edge of the river channel." Texas rigged sluggos did the trick. "How many fish Jimdogg?"

Rockland Fishing Derby a huge success.
Peter Ewell of the Rockland Park Department did a great job organizing the event. All the kids involved had a busy day bringing all the various species to the weigh in. Big winner of the day was Zach (left end in red) who took it with a 1lb 14oz large mouth bass. Thanks to Rockland Eagles Aerie 841 for the prizes. Rockland park Dept., Rockland Youth Commission, Rockland High School Key Club and many others including members of the "Bite Me Bait Co". Billy Bob (Computer Bob), Jimdogg, AC and his wife Missy.
The winners and the heavy hitters ham it up. "Bite Me Bait Co" members do a great job weighing fish and handing out some great prizes once touched by Elmer himself.
Many kids and many fish made for a fun day.
Fresh water fishing is always just around the corner. Don't overlook any of the ponds in your local area. Most will carry bass and pickerel along with the many pan fish that feed them.

Speaking of ends......Who is this man and what is he doing?
Jimdogg takes one for the team!
Due to an act of God, Rock Bottoms container of home made cod jigs,(borrowed by Jimdogg) took an unexpected dive to the bottom of the "Cathy Ann's" slip. Fearing expulsion from the Grand Poobah, Jimdogg donned Capt. Dave's emergency goggles and made a daring dive to the bottom to rescue the gear. It took 3 attempts in the 8 foot deep, 53 degree, murky water before the rescue was made.
"Man is that water cold!" "And deep too!" says Jimdogg Bond
Chauncy Lake on an Early Spring Day
Jimdogg and Elmer dragged out the kayaks for the first time in 2009 and manage a few fish to boot. What a beautiful day. Warm temps and clear skies, low winds, who could ask for more. Jimdogg struck first with a nice sized yellow perch, then followed with a small pickerel. Elmer had a nice large mouth and missed a couple of others. We were drifting shiners and casting various lures. The perch and bass fell to the shiners and the pickerel to a jerk bait. This is only the start of a long fishing season from the kayak fleet. Waters are warming and fishing activity will be picking up.
Jimdogg Ice Fishing 2009
A couple of state pins for fish over 2 pounds and a 4.5 pound pickerel made for a great season.
"These are only a few of the many fish I caught over the winter."
Jimdogg shares at Rosie's Place
BlueCross/BlueShield workers help serve the homeless at Rosie's Place near downtown Boston. "Bite Me bait Co's" own Jimdogg manned the dishwashing equipment making sure that everything was spic & span. Jimdogg one of our best photographers takes the time to make a picture himself. " These kind of work days are the best" said Jimdogg. "It makes you realize what truly goes on in the homeless world. I was glad to be a small part of the team today. BlueCross/BlueShield always has the public's interest at heart, constantly getting involved with those less fortunate than ourselves." "My co-workers and I had a great time!"
Jimdogg shows off his new fishing skills with a nice 10 pound 6 ounce Mirror Carp and a 12 pound Common Carp
From the Blackstone River in Uxbridge to the mighty Charles River in downtown Boston, Jimdogg knows where to get his carp.
Moving on out of the rivers and into the harbor, Jimdogg shows how it's done! Striped bass always are fun to catch.
Jimdogg dives into harbor to promote new clean water regulations.
Looks deep for evidence of pollution!
New pumping regulations will contribute to water quality improving!
Things are looking up.

Jimdogg's 2007 season is well under way. Some nice largemouth bass from the kayak, and cod aboard the Irish Ayes.
Jimdogg is a great cod fisherman. Always catches fish. Whether fishing smallies in Maine, ground fish on the bank, or stripers from the shore. Jimdogg is there. Jimdogg holds a nice 15 pound cod in the picture below.
Runner up for Fisherman of the Year 2006
"Jimdogg" the "Bite Me Bait Co's" first member to be elevated to VP status. An avid fisherman like the rest of us, he fishes both waters to good success, Originally brought on to be our hard water chef. "Jimdogg" soon displayed the fishing skills that elevated him to VP status. Along with "Dave", "Jimdogg has spent many days catching all species of fresh water fish. A runner up to the "Fisherman of the Year" award, "Jimdogg caught 2005s largest Striped Bass from shore or boat at 43" 26lbs.
"Jimdogg" joined the "Bite Me Bait Co's" kayak fleet this year. "We caught a lot of fish from the kayak this year" In 2006 we are going to go for big fish and the "Nantucket Sleigh Rides". Here's "Jimdogg" catching a "snapper blue" in Duxbury Harbor. "Becoming a VP with the company was my biggest thrill." he said. "This is our best excuse to go fishing yet. I can't thank everyone enough."
Not a bad start for the 2006 season. The cod fish could have been bigger but the draggers are all over the area and once their season is over the fish will move in again. Great weather starting, and time to paste wax the kayak and get ready to go striper fishing. Last year's fish will be only a memory after I get a big one in the kayak. "Thanks to Elmer for reeling in the fishing trip." We were fishing with Penn 113'S and I had an 8 foot Ugly Stik boat rod and Elmer had a 6.5 foot beauty bought at last weeks fishing show put on buy the Mass Striped Bass Assoc. We all joined this year. We were glad to see that the game wardens are checking the catch. Just make sure to follow the rules.
Some of the best striper fishing is in Boston harbor says Jimdogg. And here are a couple of nice ones I pulled up from under the sky scrapers. Thanks to Capt. G-No and the "Irish Ayes".
Furnace Pond is right out my front door and I spend many hours in the kayak chasing largemouth bass.
2006 continues good to me so far. Cod, haddock, now stripers. Kayaking is one of my passions and I go quite often. The North River is one of my favorites and Elmer always finds new spots for us. My first mackerel fishing this year and is that fun. Field testing our latest gear is what I do best. So far lots of nice fish. Gotta love fishing! Thanks to G-No and Rock Bottom I am having a great year!
