Big Cats?

Post By: Ultimatehen      Posted: 7/17/2013 12:51:06 PM     Points: 3    
Hey All.

Has anyone ever pulled a bigger kitty (~10lbs +) out of these ponds? We catch a lot of smaller ones, the largest probably around 1.5 lbs. I really like this area and have gotten some large bass out of here. I would like to fish it at night more if it is productive for cats/

I have seen fish 24 inches and over there.

However, before you decide to do some night fishing, Prospect Ponds are a natural area and closed from 11p.m. to 5 a.m. to all activities, including fishing.

Not Prospect Ponds, I've only fished those a couple times. But, just across Prospect at Riverbend Ponds there is at least one big one. I hooked it a few weeks ago. Got it right by the bank and it busted my line. I'd guess it around 30". (Just a guess, mind you, but it was big.) This was in the furthest Northwest pond.
