Fishing Quarry Lakes

5 posts in this topic

I have an old abandoned quarry near me that i fish a lot. Theres actually 2 lakes separated by a road. The water is clear, visibility is about 6-8 feet. Tons of trees fallen on the banks, lots of concrete blocks in the water, some vegatation. Theres a healthy population of 3-4 pound bass and the lake gets fished by a handful of people. We keep it secret. Aside from bass theres monster carp, pickerel, huge crappie and bluegill, catfish. Any tips or techniques for fishing clear deep quarry lakes. I fish from shore and have been doing great with 2-4 pound fish but i know there is bigger. The banks are shallow out until about 15-20 feet out then it drops off sharply into deep water. Water temps right now are around 65-67 degrees so im guessing theyre getting ready to spawn but i havent caught a fish with a bloody tail yet. Seems like theyre just coming up from deep water into the spawning areas.

Here fishing quarries......???

Hint; We would go catching bull frogs at night in the quarries when we were kids. I'd suggest frog lures.
