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.

Guys go to the DNR site there are many city ponds they stock with adult fish every spring so kids can have a chance to fish.its really for all to fish but mainly kids who dont get much chance to get out to the cabin!

      Leech, my experience exactly, I hated the thing! I'm a Mister Twister Piranha guy, it's a little heavier duty than the green ones but never had trouble with the green ones either over the many years I've used them. I can use a filet knife on those rare occasions we do a shore lunch somewhere.

      Be cool if there was such a thing. Being people are getting so much more interest in pout it wouldn't be a bad thing I'd say.

      I don't personally own a smmity sled but I've herd many great things about them.

      Thats what I thought.  But I am sure that is what the guy said

      I think some people are obligated to keep what they catch. Me I'll keep fish but not very often at least in the winter. (Not on Mille lacs) Mille lacs you have the chance at catching a trophy sure maybe it would be cool to keep it but for a lot of us letting a trophy go is as good as keeping it at least IMHO.
