I first fished Larkin Creek Pond (#3) a few weeks
ago. Since then I've learned that Larkin Creek
actually forms a number of ponds. I have seen
3, fished 2, and I think there may be a few others
yet to be found.
The pond that I call Larkin Creek Pond #2 is
hidden in a housing division. There is a small
piece of land that appears to be public where
I park my car. The first few times I saw this
water I didn't stop because I wasn't sure if I
could park there. My wife and I decided to finally
give it a try. We parked there last saturday and
started to fish the water. We found that the water
was pretty good for fishing. There are some weeds
on the shoreline but the majority of the shoreline
is clear. There is a large amount of subsurface
weeds that start about ten feet into the water.
This provides good shelter for bass but allows
bluegill and other sunfish to spawn near the shore.
The inlet to the pond flows at a fairly good pace
as does the outlet.
first fished the closest water to the car. Within
a few minutes Crystal caught her first fish, a
nice bluegill. I too caught my first bluegill
a few minutes later. We both ended up with a small
bass before the night was through. After fishing
there we moved towards the outlet. I had the idea
of fishing there first but my wife being 7 months
pregnant and faster on her feet than me got to
fish it first. She had great luck there. Towards
the other side and passed where we could walk
and still stay dry there appeared to be an area
of rocks near the shore. She pulled 6 or more
fish from there before we were done for the night.
When we left we knew that we would have to go
back to fish there. It was a nice pond with good
fishing and it's not to far from home.
