July 28, 2009 — Max Tredeau, 9, reeled in a big one today! His largest catch to date at the Hopkinton-owned North Pond Dam (located on the Upton/Milford town lines)! This large mouth bass weighed in at just under 8lb's and was 26" long-. When caught, the bass had 2 painted turtles in it's mouth.
Max and his dad, Harris, were able to save one of the turtles and release it back into the lake, along with the bass. Max has been fishing this dam, regularly for 5 years and his Dad for 30 or more. This was the biggest catch ever!
