Im gonna do some late 5-6 hour fishing there and I do not own a boat and I am going to be using my saltwater rod with maybee a plastic worm or something in that area. Please tell me if it’s as good as they say and please tell me what is recomended for fishing there.
It is also late September (23rd) and its the first day of Fall here so tips and tricks for the fall would help too.
I go out at like 3:00 pm (even though i know thats a bad time) and i see fish jumping but i cant catch them. I use a pole with a reel obviously, i have a hook and a glittery green worm attached to it with a weight above it. I dont know if i should use a bobber and if my bait is no good either. I would like a fishing afficianado to help me.
Hi guys. I’m 14, and I have a small pond in my neighborhood that I’ve been fishing in for probably 10 years ever since I was a kid. I love fishing, and for the majority of my time fishing at the neighborhood pond (I’d say it’s about the size of a football field with a max depth of about 5-7ft), we caught a lot of fish. I remember one trip where we caught about 15 catfish total in probably about 2 hours. We also caught various panfish and largemouth bass. However, in the past 2 years, I have maybe caught 1 or 2 fish. I KNOW they are there though, because just a week ago I was walking along the ledge and spotted about 10 good size largemouth bass in the shallow water. I know they are there, but I need tips on how to catch them. Again, my pond consists of largemouth bass, panfish, catfish, and even 2 large koi fish.
The pond has is connected to a creek on one side that, when there is a good amount of rain, flows directly into the pond. On the opposite side is a dam for when the water overflows. In the middle of the pond is a large fountain as well.
The temperature will be fair, about 60-70 degrees, and we are fishing starting at about 6-7pm. Any tips and tricks on how to catch fish in this neighborhood pond are greatly appreciated! Also, if anybody has any tips about being a better fisherman in general, I am open to any suggestions!
Last thing, I use spincast and baitcast reels, if that is important
There is a small pond in my neighborhood. I know there is yellow bullhead and sunfish in their. I want to find out what else is in their. Should I use a seine net or a minnow trap? I would go snorkeling but it’s a very dirty pond.
all i know is that it’s supposed to connect to the pawcatuck river via something called ”chapman tributary” and it’s somewhere in south county. these may be local names for these waters becuase i cannot seem to be able to google them up or find them on any maps.
The pond/lake is at least 100 acres long with lots of structure (submerged logs etc). Also there are many areas with the weeds almost coming to the surface. There are some deep areas, but also many shallow areas. I know what i would use, but am curious to here your ideas.
