Taking you back with some fishing history
At the beginning of the fishing season we checked out an old fishing spot of mine from back in the day in Grove City aka (bull frog pond). But before I go any further let me give you some fishing history so let’s take this back about 12 years ago or so, I was somewhere around 18 years old. I worked part time and went fishing full time (LoL) I was always on the hunt for new fishing holes. We all know how hard that can be especially farm ponds. I got lucky with this one. I was hanging out at my Ant and uncles house one day and they had some friends over. I started talking about fishing and how hard it is to find the good fishing spots with the big bass here in Ohio When my uncles friend started talking about this pond that is sitting in the middle of some woods in the middle of a cornfield. It got me thinking wow this place has never been fished before I have to know where it is and how he had come across this pond. After talking to this man for a while he says he is a pilot and has flown over this pond a few times and it’s about a mile walk from any road or house and in the middle of the woods at this time I’m ready to cuss this guy out (Just Tell Me Where Man) I had to keep my cool to get the goods. He finally gave me this sweet fishing hole info but told me I would have to get permission to fish there first. Well we as fisherman take risk sometimes to catch the big fish. So me and my cousin grab the fishing gear jumped in the truck and headed that way. When we found the place there were no signs posted so we fished all day. This place we the best place I had fished at that time in my life we caught something like 200 bluegill that day. Now I know what you’re thanking bluegill yes all the bluegill we pull out that day were over 12 inches long with the biggest being 14 inches. This was crazy we was not on the hunt for bluegill but big one like that are fun to hook. The thing was no matter what you put in the water they hit it even just a hook with no bait at all. This is a good thing and a bad thing. This place is definitely a virgin pond with huge fish but no way past the gills. On the way out at the end of the day there was a man in a tractor plowing the field. I flagged him down and asked him who owned this pond and he gave me the owners phone number after I fished there for sometime I did end up getting the permission to fish there. In my mind I have to find out how to get past the bluegill to catch the large mouth bass I never did find out how. Fast forward to today. Me and my father stopped in and casted a line. First cast dad pulled up a monster bass coming in around 5 or 6 pounds you can be the judge on that one. Over the next two hours we landed 61 bass no bluegill “What” I have no clue what ever happened to all of them dam bluegill. Anyway my dad calls me over and says there is a truck driving up so I rush over to meet this truck. I was worried about fishing this place after so many years but there was still no signs posted. This guy gets out of his truck and I kindly tell him my story. He says the place sold about five years ago and asked us to leave that fine we packed up and left. I can’t give you guys the location of this place sorry maybe the next one.
