    My buddies feed carp there and then turn around and catch them on Bread Flies :roll_eyes: and about 3 years ago I think, some kid caught a 38 lb or something like that flathead on a minnow ( Im sure someone put it in there ) anyways it was in the paper and my buddy said it was a freaking zoo after that but there is no real cover there as my buddy tried to put some christmas trees out there durring the winter and about got arrested for it, they dont want no cover or anything someone would have to clean up later in there.

    3-5 years ago, when I fished it, the gills were small when you could find them so I dont know how well it is fishing now but there really is a ton of local pressure there for panfish and carp, and the carp are generally less then 3 lbs since there are so many of them, The bigger ones youll see are Grass carp (white Amurs) and they will eat the bread too.

    You ever get any cats there? I dont think I have even seen any bullheads there but Im sure there are some there.

    the cat from my avatar thing is from lincoln park plus ive caught lots in the 30's, but please dont watse your time it is now fished so hard that the flats dont eat like normal, people catch them on bacon and corn and dumb stuff like that, 2 summers ago i caught alot but now theres too may people fishing it, theres still in there but dont bother trying bluegill, live shad or bull head anymore theyve seen so many of those they wont touch them!!! i used to catch um like crazy but not any more, so dont bother to waste your time, hit the river!!!

    really unless you like not catching them FRUSTRATING

    i fished it some years ago for bullhead to use as bait, but that was before it started getting stocked with the flats from the pay-lakes. there are several ponds around that folks stock but like previously stated they get hammered! i seen a picture in the paper of a 55lb that came from there about 5 years ago. it is a shame that a fish has to live out the rest of his life in that type of setting (caught, re-caught, re-caught, die of starvation), but it does give folks, especially kids, opportunities to catch fish for free.

    i have been puting cats in that place for 10 years now , there are a ton of small crappie in there. i work for the city of kettering and the pond did not have enough predators in it . it is full of shad . best bait hole around!. there is a 59 pound flatt head in there i just put in there . since it is against the law to put fish in the river, thats where they go . i do my best to clean out the pay lakes . i also put them in private ponds to clean up the blue gills . the kettering rec center has alot of good cats in there also . the real reason they dont hit normal cut baits and live gold fish and shad is there is to many of the bait fish in there . ... and like it was said before to much pressure . i have pulled out 13 fishing poles in 3 years , the best one was a abu-garcia 7000 on a loomis rod .$300 set up . it costed me $30 to clean it up , works great. i have saveral spots to fish for flatt heads around town . i will fish with any one

    hey Rodney, did you happen to go to Dunbar High? i went to Dunbar and knew a Rodney way back who used to pay-lake and used to re-stock the flats also.

    Rodney,

    We'll have to get back to fishign around here. With so much pressure & aggrvation that is involved with fishing, I'm thinking of fishign the pay ponds more. It's quicker & I don't have to be stressed out about where to go & stuff.

    the pay lakes are ok, but not really sporting. they are however, great for kids, who often don't have the patience to river fish. not to mention the safety factor of ponds vs. rivers, when taking young children fishing. also, make sure to only visit ones who buy from fish farms. avoiding pay lakes that depleat the local rivers, and streams helps to curtail the practice of fish "hoarding"

    I serously doubt that I'd go to one, I guess I said that out of frustration more than anything.

    i live close to a pay lake, and have fished it occaisionally, for fish to stock into the pond at home. i actually have caught some big brutes, bigger than my BOC PB catfish, but i don't really consider them caught fish, so i didn't list them.
