city ponds

8 posts in this topic

so I live in plymouth and there are a few good size ponds around my house, with some nice looking lily pads and what looks to be open deeper water in the middle, how does one tell if they have fish in them or not? Is there a size that you should look for? I went to check out the one by my house, walked out on a log and fell in!! pretty funny, good thing no one was around to see...

I lived in Plymouth years ago, off 26th and Dunkirk, many of the ponds had small sunnies and bullheads in them. Fun for kids but the key word is SMALL.

You'd be surprised what are in some of these city ponds. A few years back I had my canoe out on a small pond in Dakota county and this guy pulls off the side of the road and said "you ain't gonna catch anything". Then he just drove off. Little did he know we had caught & released 20 Largemouth in a couple hour period.

      Those are quantom blades in that picture and they work great for reopening holes and I never had a problem with it being bad for the blades in fact that ring around the bit on the bottom is to help guide the blade when going through a preexisting hole

      Mine looks like that.  And it does reopen holes, and is sharp.  But, had read in past it was not good for the blade.  A friend indeed has attached a 10" Strikemaster, dual blade to his Eskimo so it does work.  His impressively cuts holes quickly, at angles, etc.  He spears so he does 5 holes side by side , 3 holes deep, then augers side ways to remove in between.  Works well.  Complete hole done, less scooping, in under 10 minutes.   Thanks for all the advice.  Could use something larger than 8" anyway, so may go to 10.  Also will redo back part by toy hauler door, under bunks to a 20" x 5' hole, covered and hinged of course.  May spear, but even if not I love watching the fish and various movements of bait, etc.   Again, thanks for being generous. Wahoo
