>> DOVER (March 6, 2013) – The Delaware Division of Fish and Wildlife is advising anglers to expect a reduced fish population in Records Pond, a 92-acre impoundment in Laurel that typically plays host to several small bass fishing tournaments each year and is popular with anglers seeking a variety of fish species.
In the meantime, anglers are encouraged to take advantage of some of the state’s other public fishing access areas. Good fishing spots for largemouth bass, pickerel, crappie and bluegill in the Laurel area include the Division of Fish and Wildlife’s Chipman and Horsey ponds, both of which offer boat ramps and shore fishing.
Also, Trap Pond State Park offers a variety of outdoor recreation opportunities including a boat ramp for small motorized boats, non-motorized boat rentals and fishing for largemouth bass, pickerel, crappie and bluegill.
