Marker Description: There are two ponds located in John F. Kennedy Park in Sayreville. The small pond is shallow and gets fairly weed-choked in the summer. Fishing for largemouths can be great in this pond some years, and terrible in others; it does seem to cycle (2008 was a down year, year before was gang-busters). Shoreline is completely accessible. The larger pond is a bit deeper in the main channel, but is consistently shallow around the shore. Shoreline is completely accessible, but there is a boat launch there as well. Fishing in the large pond is usually somewhat slow, with largemouths and pickerel the chief fish of concern. Big carp sometimes school in the outflow channel on the east side. Park can sometimes be overrun by geese and their droppings, so watch your step. It is nearly always windy here. Best bets in the small pond are super shallow-running and lipless crankbaits, and soft plastics. Topwater poppers and spinnerbaits seem to be good bets in the large pond. Fish at dawn, dusk or on cloudy days, as the high sun seems to shut the fish down.
