Might be overfished, but you'd be surprised by what came up from last spring's electro-shocking.

I could see how fishing from shore could be tough, but fishing the outside weedline from a boat is pretty good at Batterson. There's a great variety of fish there. I usually catch walleye, yellow perch, largemouth bass, white perch, sunnies and rock bass there, but have also seen carp and eels pulled from the water.

It is a shame that this pond cannot be ice fished during the Winter. Too many springs and soft spots.I grew uo fishing it and riding my bike around it other than the large beach sight. If I had a boat I would love to fish off that beach and the old YMCA beach. Lots of sand for spawning. The inlet is also good on the West side in the Spring. The water is warmer. I have caught many fine yellow perch and bass there. LOL with the Walleyes.

I live very close to Batterson. The place should also be producing keeper sized Walleyes this year also....Maybe we can meet up sometime riplips14......
