Had a chance to get out to one of my favorite little ponds in Rolling Meadows yesterday afternoon. Saw lots of largemouth bass swimming around in the shallows, but they were tough to catch. Only managed one smaller bass, on a 4" watermelon tube. Nice day to get out...

Jaypee,

You'd be surprised the species of fish in that pond. I just noticed they've added two aerator/filtering fountains in the middle of the lake. That will probably help out with the dense weeds in the summertime, and might make the water a bit better for fishing. At least I would think so...

But yeah, back to the fish, there's crappie, bluegill, decent 2-3lb largemouth, bullhead catfish, carp, and I even saw a guy post a report on catching a nice looking northern from there. I've had the most success with largemouth on plastic worms and crappie on mini-mites/curly tails, all caught and released.

Good luck out there!
