actually ball pond is underfished and if you really want to get a taste of some real action go offshore. you catch everything. i used to never catch anything on shore but that fabulous day when i cagt all those trout catfish and largies. a knew fantasy came. in my dreams i picture myself on my boat fishing for trout and bass. ball pond is defiantly an underfished fishing paradise.

Decided to try out ball pond after reading the reviews and seeing pics now ive been fishing for about 15 years and ive never been so disappointed going there every other weekend all summer and only coming up with average catches seems to me like its an overfished pond these days all that record trout talk is in the past

trout and bass thrive in ball pond. someone said wind kills the bite, but i dont think anything can with how much im catching. As number one bass fishing pond or lake in the state, it has mighty bass. It even had the state record brown trout of 9 1/2 pounds. It has been beaten in other places now but a man just caught a ten pounder right off shore!
