Went to New Croton reservoir on the east side today. 1st time on a boat there. Had a Garmin striker 4 plus with clear view on the transom of my Jon boat. I thought the water would be clearer in visibility just looking at it. Probably did about mile of shoreline and noticed whole lot of weeds. I think it's hydrilla down to 15' or 16' off the bank. As thick as a carpet. I lost a 8" dink on a 4" paddle tail. I give him credit but too big for him. Lol. I threw top water. Soft plastics. Finesse worms. Beaver Bates. Shaky head. Whopper plopper. Then just started playing with the bluegills with some worms I brought. So what's the deal with this reservoir other then the obvious.. it's August and the water is 80ﾟ at the surface? I know it's a very big reservoir and I only did a small portion of it. I did notice that the banks drop off fairly steep at most places I saw very little if any submerged structure. Only a few drop offs other than the bank. No rocks that I saw or submerged logs other than the few lay downs that fell off the bank. It seems like a very flat bottom reservoir. Thoughts / opinions? Just curious? Very few fish but a was a very good day..
