Not fond of paylakes??????until now by George M. at InsiderPages
I am 41 years old and have been fishing even before I can remember, growing up in Cleveland Ohio and in Pennsylvania??????I have fished in many different waters. Great Lakes to small southeastern streams of big and small fish has always proved to be enjoyable and challenging catching the wild fish from Gods great outdoors. We have been a fishing family all our lives when my brother started fishing paylakes many years ago I went with him on several occasion, always finding myself saying why on earth would I pay to fish when I an go to the river or the lakes. I had never had real success or enjoyment by fishing these captured fish, but loved watching Craig catch the fire out of the cats and carp and trout depending from the lakes we fished.

I had moved to Kentucky in 2000 and fished the many spots I have heard about through word of mouth and the local tackle spots had told me about. Craig had moved down here in 2003 and started right away to find the hot spots, he had run across Tim??????s Paylake and immediately came to me and said George I know you hate paylakes but you have to fish Tim??????s. Reluctantly I went with him and excepted to find a hole in the ground and water dumped into it, driving down the twisted and turning road I had felt the excitement Craig was feeling, he rattled off about both top and the bottom lake and when we turned that corner and I seen the lakes, I started to see something I had never seen before in a Paylake.
The place was not a mud hole and dumping place for trash and just out for the money. I seen a family oriented environment and the place that had everything that a novice would need or the seasoned fisherman would need to fish. We fished the bottom pond for the big cats and within several hours Craig had caught 3 fish the biggest being 44 pounds. I had some bites but I never had landed a fish that day but I had changed my mind about paylakes
