I fished the shoe pond since I was a kid (60 yrs ago) and caught huge carp,big perch and lots of catfish and eels! Aguy I knew well put about a dozen bass he caught at Wenham lake into the Shoe pond. Within 4 yrs the pond was loaded with bass some of which were 5 lbs. Years later I caught one out of the pond that weighed in at 8 lbs!! I always used nightcrawlers for bait! Have not fish the pond since the Cummings Center bought the land but diff. folks tell me there are huge bass in the pond but no fishing is allowed!
