At least from the main road, I don't see any no fishing signs. Early spring would be the time to try cuz in the summer, thick vegetation all around would probably won't give you much access.

I fished it a long time ago and got booted.. let me tell you something... It still pops in my head to go back and take the ticket ;)

Security at the office building called the police, this was at night. the officer said if he catches me there again, he will have to write me a trespassing ticket...

I've fished here a few times with a friend of mine. We fished for maybe 15 minutes before we got asked to leave. Caught a few bluegills. Does anyone know what kind of fish are in here and how big they are ? Specifically wondering about carp/catfish.

My old man grew up in the Pekara Subdivision which is off Milwaukee Avenue and it was named after my great grandfather that build that land there and and one point owned most of that area around the Aptakisic quarry. There were 4 or 5 quarry ponds around that area some I fished as a child that are now filled in. The "good one" according to my dad, and he's passed away now, but from what I remember was the pond at Milwaukee Avenue and Aptakisic Road. That was the local hang out for teens in 60s to do whatever you could imagine... Anyway, he told me the fishing there was unbelievable. We went once in the 90s and only got in about 10 mins before a guard kicked us out and we each had caught two bass in that time.

I could be wrong about this but that is the pond where the supposed state record came from.

Damn the forums are new!

Anyone fished it recently... I went with my nephew but nothing. Threw out a few crankbaits and a buzz bait on the north-west side of the pond but no hits. I did see some huge carp in there though.

Sounds like it's private although I haven't seen any signs. I parked in a completely different area and walked over to it right past the factory. No one said a word.
