Wilmore Park (St Louis City) Fishing Report


Recommended Posts

Well, it could be said that I am not the best fisherman. But I am consistant in Wilmore Park. I got skunked yet again. I went during a lunch break, only for about 1/2 hour.

I really wanted to see how well I repaired my ultra light rod. I did good. First time repairing a broken tip. I reused the tip that was on the rod, I tried to heat it up and pull out the piece of rod that was attached, but it just broke again. I was able to drill out the rest of the material of my graphite rod, and the tip was large enough to re-attach to my rod. Now the tip and the first eye are very close. Looks kind of funny, but it casted well.

Back to the report. I had some tiny sunfish going after my white Marabou jig, but could not find the larger sunfish. I seen what I believe was a red eared slider turtle sunning itself on a brush pile in the lake. It was not spooked by me at all, got to within 6 feet of it. It was neat to see, the rear legs were out of its shell and seemed to be spread out (like a human would be in a relaxed position). I took a pic with my phone, I snagged a stick attached to the brush he was sunning on, and he did not seem to care about me moving the stick trying to unsnag.

Did not catch anything, but, I kept my reputation at Willmore.

Good luck to all.

Make that 3 at Wilmore park (Hampton near Gravois, right?). Seems to be one of those naturally tough places to catch anything, cause it's just so small, and dirty (especially the smaller, "northern lake" (man that's stretching even the definition of a pond)). Ever see anyone catch anything there?

Yes, that is the park, I have never seen anything come out of it. I have heard many stories, but I can not verify any. I was on the smaller pond, it was closer to the parking lot, and I didn't have alot of time.

I used to live close to Wilmore...never caught much of anything, but I was there once when they shocked it...there are some big bass. I woud fish Forest Park and Carondolet way before Wilmore, both fish much better. There are a few catfish in the smaller pond, but that is it...no real bass or sunfish present.
