Putty and I played hookie today and he invited me to a pond in gahanna. Caught two small mouth...my first on artificial bait. Used a 3" senko bright green worm on this one. 1376606688359.jpg

Definitely a good way to spend a day off. I nabbed these boys!!! Used three baits. Pop r, Chatterbait and a crank bait.
One of the bigger ones when I reeled it in had a 13" line hanging out of it's mouth. When I got my hook out I tugged that line and half of a senko that was hooked in it's belly began to come out. I couldn't get it out, so I cut the line and it vanished back into it's stomach.

Landed one in the couple hours I was there. Seems like there were some pretty decent sized fish.

I have fished that pond a couple of times.
tip for that pond:
The kids that fish it all the time use hot dogs to catch the bass there.

My daughter caught a bluegill, and I threw it on my spare rod with a redfish popping cork and pulled a nice 5 pounder out of there. The bass will hit a hotdog before any lure there. It is weird.

haha its funny you say that because that it the place that I learned that hotdogs were such great bait, we slayed the catfish in there on them. We always used Rooster Tails for the bass or a red and black shad rubber worm. Also right before dark you could get some awesome topwater action!

Has anyone made it over to woodside green south pond lately? I fished that place when I was younger and it was a great pond.
Me, putty and nyall actually just hit that pond last week for like 3 hours before dark. I caught 1 small bass, and putty caught 1 small bass, we saw a lot of bluegill popping but didn't see much bass activity. I thought that pond looked great on the map but I couldn't figure it out, maybe I'll try again in the fall and see if I can catch a couple nicer fish.

There was a guy there that morning using hot dogs and corn to catch nice sized bluegill. He told me there were some 4+ pounders in there. Of the ones I caught they were all around the same size. I will put a hot dog on the back of my chatterbait next time and see what happens.

I really focused on the rocks by the second entrance, also there is a sand bar on the north side of the pond that is a good area very close to those rocks.

Fished here today. Had a nice one on via pumpkin senko. Started jumping out of the water. Swam in to some birds nest floating bobber that was lost earlier and got tangled. Line snapped...still fuming.
