Other than that I only know about the reservoirs - Kensico, Croton, Cross River, Muscoot,Titicus, Amawalk, Croton Falls, West Branch, East Branch. I've never fished most of them, but I think they all have bluegills - and all require a reservoir permit. There are a bunch of lakes in Harriman State park that have bluegills also.

Email em anytime. Busy season is 12 months a year, just typically lots more pond questions during the summer. Answering pond questions leads to tons of work and product sales, and even if a question doesnt indirectly lead to a sale, it always comes around later. That is the key to growing an online business and developing a good reputation. Emails are powerful stuff in terms of reaching a large audience.

Dale,
I get all the emails for hbpondmanagement and try to answer them all ASAP. Typically in a months time I will answer well over 1500 emails, except in May, June and July that number is twice as much.

Anyhow please shoot me over another email or ask your questions on this site and I will do my best to answer your question or will come up with something! Sometimes emails get lost in space or end up in junk mail folders.

Tried to fish Kensico once, but I had a tenkara rod (a type of fly rod) that day and couldn't find a place where there was room for a backcast. I think you either need a boat or a spinning rod. Actually, you really need a boat for any of the NYC reservoirs I think.

Hi Dale,
Sorry to be so long getting back to you. I haven't been on the board for a while. I mostly fish a private pond my friend has permission to fish on - that and Lake Mahopac (the pond's better).

Hey Dale! I got the float tubes from Cabelas! We love them! It is so much fun to fish from! Each one was only 205$. Very reasonbly priced!

Hey Dale...the blue net is actually a 'keep sack' that fits over top of a 5 gal bucket and keeps panfish alive and it can also just be thrown in the water with a rope attached to the boat or shoreline. Got it at bass Pro. 7 bucks.

They're old phosphate pits, created back in the 1920's when TVA was mining the county for phosphate; my grandfather actually worked as a supervisor for TVA out at the mines for a couple years long before I was born. They're beautiful ponds though. The one that has the big shellcracker now has two houses on it, but they're nice houses and nice people, and you almost forget the houses are there when you're in a johnboat fishing the far bank and you catch one of those big shellcracker. That particular pond has a couple holes close to forty feet deep; my grandfather claimed there's a backhoe sitting at the bottom of that pond in a deep spot, they hit a spring and couldn't get it out of there quick enough; one of the property owners says he's seen something yellow close to the surface out near the middle at times of drought.

I have nine other ponds I'm working with that don't have any houses on them; they range from a quarter-acre to two acres each. I also work with a 56-acre lake that has a lodge on it that's available for people coming in from out of town.
