Author Topic:  Got to admit, private lakes are much easier than public waters to catch fish  (Read 59 times)

Offline SENKOSAM

For years I fished waters few or no anglers fish and came to the conclusion I was the next angler to pose for BassMaster Magazine considering how many fish were caught. In the last four years I had access to federal and state lakes that held numbers and quality. But, the illusion of greatness faded fast fishing more heavily fished lakes where fish were kept. Quality was far and in between; numbers good only during the week when no one else was fishing the spots we all know about. Now that many more are retired, more fish from M-F getting on the lakes early. (I don't hit the lakes until 10am.) 

It really sucks and forces me to find remote waters I can cartop too especially now that the federal lakes recently stopped access for vets having less than 100 % disability. Man were those lakes fantastic! 

Gone are the illusions, present are new challenges catching fish on water many fish and hopefully don't know how to.  (y)

Fishing private lakes will spoil you.  Public lakes are so much different.  I have fished both and I can tell you the private lakes will spoil you after one time fishing them.  You catch so many fish that have never been caught before.  They are so much smaller confining the fish to a smaller area.  Compaired to public waters which cover thousands of acres.  
Put a rod in my hand and a boat under my feet and watch me catch bass.

.....including that largest of any species.

Some of the lakes I'm referring to have dams and water 50' deep. Others have many miles of shoreline yet  are rarely fished except by those having a key to a gate.
