    One side of Richmond Road is a Private club and the other side is Jacobson park.

    thats about a mile from my house i can actually see the backside of the private fishing club which is a joke (800 dollars a year and 10 year waiting list) but with that aside i have tried out a Jacobson a few times and never had any luck other than loosing lures. most people you see fishing out there are catching a lot of small bluegill and keeping them- your guess is as good as mine.

    Brandon....it's less than $200 a year. LOL $800 would be kinda steep! The average waiting is 6 years and your membership fees pay for the maintenance of the facility and the stocking of fish. It's really a great deal.

    Re: lexington reservior on richmond road

    I have had some GREAT days out of the park side. One day caught 24, all would have kept and several were 3 to 4 Lbs. Some had the black spots on em like Ky lake bass. Problem with the park side is there are soooooo many shad in there the bass get fat and happy and all the panfish do not grow that big. Never caught a bluegill over 8 inches out of there or a crappie over 15 inches. Have seen spawning bass the the golf course pond that would have pushed 8 prob. How does a man get on the waiting list for the other side of the road?? I knew a guy who used to play AA ball for the Braves who drifted for cats there once and said he SLAYED em.

    Waiting list is about 6 years, annual dues $150. First year dues also include a one time fee of $500. Fish in the public park (Jacobson Park) often migrate from the private lake (Lake Ellerslie) through a large culvert under Richmond Road. Bass fishing in Lake Ellerslie is strictly catch & release.

    Shawn,
    You have to be sponsored by two members and then just wait your turn for the phone call. You have to live in Fayette County as well to get in.

    Nothing with a motor is allowed in the Jacobson resevoir. Canoes yes and the park used to rent paddle boats, I don't know if they still rent them or not.

    Only electric motors are permitted in Jacobson. Ellerslie permits up to a 5hp gas engine and is a no wake lake.
