This is a community park that is NOT just for residents. It is open to all but make sure you have your license ready to show, there is a constable on constant duty. There are three bodies of water here, all have fish in them and some more difficult to catch in than others. As with any new body of water decide what species you are going for, keep in mind the factors around you such as water temp, mb pressure, cloud cover, water color, structure and cover available to the fish. Then go figure out the features of each body. I will tell you I have caught only really good sized largemouth bass here. Let me know if you want to come check it out as it is my default fishing spot for early evenings when I don’t have another lake or pond adventure scheduled.

Caught my PB monster tilapia
Avatar of Saii5868

As I was packing up getting ready to go I cast out one last time my jig with a Googan Bandito bug craw into the far corner. I felt a thump on my line I reeled in fighting with this bass until I land it near shore. It was the second species caught here after my brother. As I release the bass I saw fish lines in the water moving I quickly cast my jig in the same spot suddenly booom I had a quick jerk on my line I new the fish Gods had bless me, this was a biggen. I leaned to my left side and set the hook the fish gave me a ferocious fight left right then I felt the fish was going to jump and try to escape I quickly tilted my rod down and the fish went back down. As I brought it to shore I screamed of excitement ahhh ahhh! I had landed a Red breast tilapia the size of a Chipotle flour burrito tortilla. I quickly began trying to remove the hook but the tilapia moved from my hand piercing my hand a bit with it spine. My brother took pictures and then weight the monster which was 3.12lb my God this was an insane catch good luck anglers out there. -isaiolvera
