    Drive by that pond on the way to jobs all the time and have often wondered the same thing... seems like it would be easy to get to with a truck. I have only seen a handful of people down there in the last 15 years of driving past it, so, there must be a reason. Looks too good to not be visited more often. Anyone have any ideas? Incidentally, it's the pond right across 270 from mill run.
     
  9. Yeah the reason why nobody is ever seen on there is b/c the guy that owns it actually tells police officers to keep an eye out for fishermen. i go back there every once and a while because i'm sneaky like a nija......also i met the guy once. NICE POND! but not worth the risk.

    that guy just want it to himself cant blame him for that. it would be nice :)
     
  11. I Fish That Pond All The Time ,very Clean Water,big Bucket Mouths In There I Have Also Cought Lots Ofsmallies In There Also.i Have Talked To A Couple Cops Who Say They Dont Care If You Fish It There Is Alot Of Worse Things You Could Be Doing But If The Owners Calls They Will Remove You.
     
  12. Is there a house on that property somewhere? I have only seen the pond from the highway and wondered how I could get down to it.........sneaky-like ;)
     
  13. I live about 1 mile from that pond. Police check it pretty often. The property is for sale. Means more house coming up.

    There is a gate and a trail/path, to the south, thru a field that doesn't look like it has been planted in years. Shame the owner feels that way, but, pretty hard to get away with something right next to an interstate. Looks like it would be a heck of a way to spend some time on a float tube.

    Back in the day they called this place 'Blatz lake'. There used to be another pond to the south about 1/4 mile that was awesome for bass... I'm not sure if they still do, but the central Ohio scuba diving school used to have their final exam at Blatz lake due to the excellent water clarity. Of course, back then they used to water ski on the place as well... Just some FYI...

  16. Is the pond you are talking about is on the west side of 270? If so I use to work right behing the pond and was told thatconrail owned the pond b/c the train ran alond the pond. They use to call the police on people all the time. The only way we could fish it was at in the dark b-4 work only for about 30 minutes or so. But there is big bass in that lake. I was told told that conrail owned the property but I never followed up on any of the info to get permission to fish it.

    I'm not sure of the guys name who ownes it but pretty sure it's not the railroad. He built the pond for his son (revamped it) he was a pro skier. you can see the shape and see how it works kinda like a lazy eight.
    I work by it and drive by it everday, drives me nuts as that water looks soooo good.
    I've been advised if I'm going to risk it take cheap gear as it will probably be confiscated and as another member said go early leave early.

    Good Luck, I won't see you there ;)
