Ponds

2 posts in this topic

I live about 25 minutes away from a lot of good fishing spots but I don't always have a lot of time or the desire to burn that much gas so I thought I would see if anything would bite at a tiny pond closer to home. The pond is part of a park and the water has some chemical in it that makes the water blue so I knew ahead of time I would not be catching food. To my delight I found there are very many bluegills in there and many of them are good sized. I had just purchased an ultralight rod and put on one of my Tica reels from an ice rod. Using a tiny bobber and very light line I have to say this kind of fishing was a blast. Action was as fast as I could handle for hours and it seemed every time I got a different looking gill. Not quite a challenge or anything but definatly a morale boost and I plan on taking my nephews there who are just getting old enough to fish. I just thought I would post to encourage others to not always overlook these tiny ponds because there is some fun to be had.

That would be great to take kids too. Lots of fun and keeps the kids interested. And on an ultralight it can seem like you got a monster on.
