    Public land problem

    So, there is a wonderful hole near me that is a public park... it is weird, because the only parking is in a baseball field/tennis court park right next to it then you have to cross a field and creek to get to the pond (or cross the property of a hardware store but they don't care as long as you don't disturb anything) but there are signs indicating it is a public park. Anyway there is a house behind the lake who's property is partially along the lake. On the border of the town property and hers there is a sign placed there by the town that says "park ends here" so you cannot cross. However, a second sign was placed by the resident approximately 150 feet onto town property that says NO FISHING BEYOND THIS POINT (conveniently placed so that no fisherman can block her view of the pond). I'm sure the sign was placed by her and it is annoying to be yelled at for fishing on public land (of course i respect her land and don't cross the "park ends here sign", but between the two signs is public land, it only goes private beyond the second sign).

    How can i complain to the town about this? She even yells at us when we are half way on the other side of the lake, probably 1000 feet from her property. Can I get a map that shows property lines? You think they will remove that sign and instruct her to stop harassing me? Again, I never cross her property.

    Keep in mind, I respect that hole, never leave garbage, catch and release, ect. Just fed up with being screamed at and threatened for enjoying some 5lb bass action on public land.

    Also, would her property line also divide the lake? Because im sure if one of those bass took off past that sign she would yell at me for chasing/fighting it.

    It is one of the few good bass holes near me, I saw 3 huge bass just schooling, and easily a 30" carp swimming around

    Open this link and zoom in on the map to the property in question and it will show the lines, owner, and their property tax info

    Tell the crab if she keeps the crap up you will bring every friend you have and plug the crap out of all of her holes. My favorite plug is a Rapala. Good luck.
