It definitely seems some have gone to extreme measures to prevent Lake County, IL pond/sub division fishing. The only argument would be if fisherman left a mess behind or kept fish when most of these are "catch and release only" and then I could see them getting "touchy" but otherwise lots of good underfished ponds will go to waste!

YES BE SUPER CAREFUL when on the ponds I went to one in the neighborhood next to mine and someone called the cops and they gave me a trespassing ticket because u had to be a part of the neighborhood charter to fish.

Be very leery of fishing retention ponds in northern lake county! Rightfully so, they all seem to be "catch and release only" ponds and it seems most residents do not want "outsiders" fishing these ponds unless you are a resident of the subdivision. Also convinced some of these sub-divisions have gone to the extent to "kill" the pond to ensure no fishing is done! What a shame!

CONDITIONS

ICE DEPTH
12 inches
Decided to give the pond behind the house a shot since we got skunked at Crystal Lake. I always had luck in the summer here, but was leery of the ice due to being spring fed. We rolled the dice and cut a few holes for tip ups and bam! They were spinning within 5 minutes. Needless to say we stayed out until about 9:30 and pulled in 10-12 good size bass!

Here is a tip...if you looking for a contour map of your local subdivision pond, check with the local municipality or county. Almost all subdivsion ponds are designed by an engineer and the plans are submitted to the municipality/county for approval and kept on file. These plans usually show the depths at which the pond was created. They are usually kept in the Public Works or Engineering Departments. They are public record and can be obtained for free (or very cheaply) by filing a Freedom of Information Act(FOIA)request. I have obtained a couple for some local subdivision ponds that I have been ice fishing on this year. Probably don't really need them, but it doesn't hurt.

Well vexilarman went out yesterday. Not going to mention where because its just too good. Sorry guys. Ice was crazy loud and you could see cracks moving across the lake. Ended up with a channel around 3 lbs. and got easily over 100 crappie in an hour. As soon as you drop it down multiple ones would race up and smack it. Most would have kept. We only kept 4 for lunch. What a fun day.
