New to Area: Need Some Spots.... BADLY!

Discussion in 'Central Ohio Fishing Reports' started by Tee_Whet, Jul 10, 2007.

  1. Hi, I just moved to Gahanna off of Morrison Rd. I used to live in Newark where I had plenty of fishing spots. I really don't know any real good spots yet. I have fished at Creekside a couple times, once with lures and once with worms. I have also found Woodside park. I cought a 9in Large mouth today and foul hooked a HUGE carp (lost my rapala to a tree... it came out of the carp), but nothing that I have been able to go to and catch something. I really just want somewhere that I can go to after I get off of work and throw some lures for about an hour and half or throw a bobber in. But that presents the other problem... there is no bait store around except up near Hoover. But that is a 15-20 min. drive and with gas the way it is... I rather not do that too often.

    water your grass really good and wait an hour and pick up the worms, there will be a lot

  4. Super walmart on Morse road (By easton)...I think they sell crawlers in cartons of 2 dozen. They keep for quite a while in the crisper drawer of ur fridge.

    A lot of the meijers sell nightcrawlers too. If you're pond fishing for lg mouth just get some plastic crawlers or buzz baits. That's pretty much all I use for ponds.

    I live on the east side too and unless you like creekin or making the drive to one of the local impoundments you're going to likely have to find someone with a pond and ask for permission. There are a lot of apartment and housing complex ponds though. Some have fish, some don't.

    I have found that this website http://www.thenaturalresource.com/fishing_home.php has a lot of info on local fishing opps in Ohio. Everything from B&T to reservoirs and lakes all over the state. You can find everything you need to know, before you hit the water next... check it out. Ted
     
  11. I was the dude on the other side of the pond. I came over to get a picture of it with the camera phone right before the Rappala went bird on you.

    I would have never thought a carp that huge would have been in that pond. Looked like you found Red October.

    I want to think I have read on here that the Woodside pond has huge gar in it too.
     
  12. I doubt that anyone will notice 10 goldfish missing. It is a good size pond with I say at least a thousand gf. The ducks will be happier too... the gf attack them over food.
     
  13. I have some rubber worms, I have these brown ones that look pretty realist. If I put it on a bobber you think that will work? I think I may also go to Wal-Mart and get some power bait or some of the spray stuff.
     
  14. sent you a message to a cple of my old spots did you get it
