Retaining Ponds

3 posts in this topic

I had a guy tell me he was fishing the retaining pond behind Tractor Supplies. He parked in the TSC parking lot and fished that pond. He caught sunnies and crappies all day went threw 100 waxies and a scoop of crappie minnows in a hour and a half. Fished with plastic the rest of the day. Have you guys ever heard if there is fish in there or not. I got the feeling he's blowing smoke up my ___! Was going to check just haven't had time.

I have heard that there are fish in there, and wouldn't doubt it. I have several of these retention pond within walking distance from my house and I have caught decent gills, up to 14" largemouth and bullheads for flathead bait in mine. Be aware, I have heard that the one in question is surrounded by private land and access is sketchy at best.

That particular pond is private. There are many similar ponds within Rochester city limits that are public, but this particular one you mention would require permission to access.

      You are paying for it one way or another it is worked in the rental fee or you pay at the road I guess its a matter of preference. Places I go at milacs always had the road pass "included" I think when I rented from up north rental on red I had to buy a pass going out of rogers.   Beacon Harbor it was included

      Fun day today fishing with Rick G and Jim Uran. Caught a lot of fish and we kept some nice ones for the tummy   Rick got biggest at 12 3/8.  And we got into some neat looking party crappies also. LOL  @Rick G  @Jim Uran   Hopped in the shower as soon as I got home to warm my wet arse up. Sleet and snowy day. Enjoying a glass of Pinot Noir right now and fish fry time Thursday night. THX for the maple syrup Jim ! !

      I went out of fish lake and with my leg,  found a hole just a bit smaller than a man hole, right in the middle of a well traveled and plowed road. I Informed the folks at the high banks about it so hope they marked it. I also found several other holes from old holes widened to around 12". Im done driving for the year. If I had a house out there I would be getting it off ASAP.
