chantilly office park

well i was in the neighborhood, and it paid off.

at4pm they were hitting fast and furious

i hit 9 bass in 70 min, with the best couple in the two pound range.

all were b/b J&P fish.

i think the bass in that pond pull harder than any i have ever caught.

i have never gotten one better than 3#, but they all yank like branded mules

Re: chantilly office park

i went back the following day, and caught 6 more.

the average size was smaller, but again i enjoyed the action.

i caught a few warmouths as well, that were able to eat a full size plastic worm and get hung on the #2 EWG hook, even tho they were relatively short.

a sidenote: fish get the hook deep really fast when it is this hot; get bit and hit them quick.

a family of beavers has moved in and restricted the outflow. the water level is up and algae way down.

Re: chantilly office park

i have continued fishing there regularly

i average around 1/2 dozen nice keepers each time, but seldom crack 2#'s.

lately, 4# line, trick worm, 1/8 bullet weight

the recent rain has brought the ticks out

this pond has more turtles than most, and at least 2 massive snappers.
funny thing is, i have seen the snappers milling around when the place is partially frozen
they go sloooooow

Re: chantilly office park

Jeffie - I have a pretty good grasp of the ponds out here in Chantilly where I work. Is there a possibility that you can inform me of this office park? If you like you can take it offline and email me some details.


If it were easy, they'd call it catching!

Re: chantilly office park

back again friday night-

caught eight more LM, the best of which was a fiesty 2#'r that hit a white senko after dark.
the light tackle provided additional entertainment.

at night the light poles create ambush areas.

on the same senko i caught a big bluegill, which was really cool

i caught some J&P bass as well

the beavers were out, and challenged me a few times, crowding my fishing areas, swimming back and forth and making it clear i wasnt wanted

they have trimmed back much of the overhanging brush,

Re: chantilly office park

this water is my top producer this year

after dark i caught two good bass, each about 2 #'s.

one was a J&P. the other was taken on a chatterbait.

there were other less notable fish as well

if you have never tried the chatterbait, give it a shot.

my best trailer has been a sweet beaver

i also nose hook a full length blue fleck worm.

i just slow roll it along likely areas.

multiple presentations can make a difference

Re: chantilly office park

the story continues

this place is bread & Butter 2010

today i had luck throwing a bomber 'model a'

i switched back to the J&P and caught a few more

last night it was recycled senkos, worked like a popper, walked like a dog, or flatout burned.

slow & easy couldnt get bit

this place is proving to have more fish than i ever suspected

more fishermen are also showing up

good thing they dont know what they are doing

i hope the crowds dont bring out the 'no trespassing' enforcers...

Re: chantilly office park

If Jeffie responds, it will likely be through a personal message. A lot of these places are held secret because they are fished through special permission and otherwise have No Trespassing signs.

Re: chantilly office park

But don't worry, there are plenty of good holes that we can share.

Re: chantilly office park

there is plenty of good water around
find some and figure out how to fish it
this is my third year on this small water, and i am still learning something all the time

the fish were always there, it is figuring out how to catch them
it changes from day to day
i rotate through old patterns, something happens, i discover a new one

the giant warmouth and bluegill seem to have evaporated.
they are just holding in different areas, and are less aggressive

they should have a bass masters tourney for shoreline anglers
then you would see who could really handle a rod

1 rod, no electronics, unlimited baits.
either that, or limited to 75.00 worth of offerings for the week, including line
lets see who scores in the real world

Re: chantilly office park

Don't know about anyone else, but one of the most exciting things for me is finding new bodies of water to fish - creek, lake, pond, stream ... whatever. Most times I'm pleasantly surprised to find fish. Sometimes just bluegill, but more often then not LMB.

A good way of finding new places to fish is to simply browse around on Google/Bing maps. I've found several ponds this way with good results. Just searching on Leesburg, I see plenty of small ponds that could potentially hold fish. Many times, they're located in or around offices or within communities.

I don't fish when it says No Trespassing, but I do admit to fishing community ponds that I'm not a resident of - I just make sure to be respectful of the property, the neighbors, practice catch and release, don't leave trash, etc.etc. Never had a problem.

The only time I ever did fish on a No Trespassing pond was at AOL, only cause I was an employee. And my VP said I could cause he fished it many times. Needless to say, the security guards were not amused, even after I showed my badge smile But let me tell you - if the security cameras left and they ever lift the ban on fishing that little pond, you'd be in for a treat!

just stick around- you will learn
after a while, you can read b/t the lines and get plenty of info

look into new horizon bass anglers.

those are good guys
