i don't mean to beat a dead horse but...

Discussion in 'Southwest Ohio Fishing Reports' started by ChrisB, May 19, 2004.

  1. Would you guys consider Lake Isablella a paylake or Lake Gloria for that matter. I've fished other paylakes but these two are a lot bigger and not very easy to fish. If so or not would it be safe to post reports from them.(mostly Isabela)
     
  2. I like reading all fishing reports, pay lake or not. I have never fished a pay lake but i dont mind to read about them.
     

  3. Post away...i'm not familiar with Gloria, but I've fished Isabella quite a few times, and it's definitely not an easy to fish lake. I'd like to hear more reports coming from there.

    Isabella is not a paylake in my mind. It is 28 acres! not a 1/2 acre like some. You definately need to know what you are doing there. Unfortunately the weeds have gotten way out of control at that lake. I know the park is considering ways to reduce them and I think they might go in a cut them. Which would be good because as huge a weedbed as it is in that lake, it is hard to catch fish esp bass, which is what I go for. Too many areas to hide. I'm not real familar with Gloria, although I went once when I was little there to trout fish.

    Fire away !!! Both are fine lakes. In fact, I'm 47 years old, and the FIRST lake I ever fished at was Gloria ;) I used to live in Mt. Healthy YEARS ago :D Isabella is just a fine lake to visit on occasions. I don't consider them in the same group as your typical pay lake. By all means give us a full report !!! I'd be really interested in Gloria.for old time sakes. CATKING

    Isabella is a pay lake? I think that I saw a sign for it today on my way to Bass Pro Shops, I HAD to check it out since I am in the area now... I went there to get a pair of good sandals for work, no sooner than me walking in the door the cell phone rang and time Warner said they were going to be early. I had to head back home! So I litterally walked in the door and was out in about 2 minutes!

    hehe I'm rambling, at any rate I think i saw the signs for Isabella but they looked like normal brown state park signs. So is this owned by the state but still a place you have to pay to fish?
     
  9. Exactly, Jim...as I'm sure it won't be long before i top that fish :D . It was quite a beast, though, and took at least 30 minutes to land on a Zebco 33 paired with a 6 ft flimsy rod of some sorts. Those were the good old days when i could put a few kernels of corn on a hook and toss it out and still catch big carp :rolleyes: .

  15. Before you get all excited about a day on the river with MFO, think about it. He's over the hill now and maybe just lookin for a first mate. You know the one that pulls up the anchor, cuts bait and nets his fish. And don't forget the picture taking. Jim needs alot of pictures taken. All that work with wear a lite weight like you out! Your gonna miss your 11am nap for sure. I know your gonna go anyway but, don't said i didn't warn ya'. And don't forget your nitro pills, there a 63 lber lurking out there somewhere.

    Thinking of ya',

    PS: If you check my posts, you will see the majority of the time I fish alone, because I prefer it & don't want someone else's lines in the way of my lucky seven (7) !!!

    Yeah.......well, you know how hard it is to run 2 or 3 lines......try seven....to be honest, I sometimes have those 7 out & then I'm casting with one, and even then I might run an extra rod or two with live bait off the front of the boat !!
    When you got it, flaunt it ! :rolleyes:
    Okay, now you can see the 1/2" Driftmaster bases across the back board, also has those 4 PVC tube holders there, so that's 9 holders on the back, I can put the downriggers on & add 2 more... :eek: Next, you see I have 6 Angler's Pal tube rod holders, and a few gunwale holders built in (4) and bases for 3 more 3/8" Driftmasters..... :cool: Oh, yeah...woman want me & fish fear me. :eek:
