I'd be more interested in the carp since I'm not gonna eat anything out of that pond anyway lol.

There's also at least one HUGE Alligator gar in there. Or at least there is if it's survived the last few years.

A friend of mine used to manage the aquariums there, and she told me that one day, a bowfisher brought in a big alligator gar that he'd shot in the tail. It was still alive, and he asked if they wanted it.

They took it in, but said they had to nurse it back to health with all sorts of antibiotics first, and eventually transferred it to the pond.

So after reading this my curiosity spiked since I live close to all these ponds nad never really fished them. I hit Capp Smith off 377 and Starnes for a few hours this afternoon and pulled in 2 small LMB using a zoom watermelon red worm on a shakey head.

Go to the secondary pond farthest from starnes and fish the cat tails from the east bank. Even though its clear water I had the best luck fishing it slow and letting it soak. Good luck to ya'll!

Lots of useful information here! Thanks fellas, it sucks not having a bass boat...but at least fishing ponds takes the edge off until I can get into one!

The one on their property? Yeah, but I doubt they want you fishing it lol.


Cabelas lets you fish their property even without a fishing license all you need to do is sign a waiver, its all catch and release though I usually take little ones there to hit the catfish cause at that point its catching not just fishing lol and it gets um hooked


Its not about how deep you can fish but by how you wiggle your worm

I've fished Capp Smith. Nothing. There's lots of turtles. My neighbor says his sons used to catch fish out there- 12 or so years ago.

what about the Fort Worth area?

the body of water by Target and Costco is always being fished.

Is there anywhere else to catch some bass in the Cityview area. Seriously, The fishing in this area is limited.

Hi, I am new in the area but I get up early and go to Starbucks then right when the sun comes I'll try a pond or two for an hour or so but I just tried this pond at Keller Pkwy and Anita/Bourland behind RaceTrac gas station and across from Funky Baja's Cantina. Behind the gas station its little drainage ditch that leads to spillway. Well, i just stood on tat spillway for a couple hours I got two 2 1/2 lb catfish and 12 2-4 lb bass. Didn't see no signs but my old lady called and I had to go... Looks like it's on. -Penskes

Oh yeah across the street there's another pond but the bass bite is much slower got three cats and one bass in few hours there i.e. @ Bourland/Keller Pkwy
