Fishing was not good

Went with my son for four hours and did not get one bite used all kinds of different baits. I was told they stock the lake so I would think you would be able to catch something

Our server was polite and helpful, never had an empty coffee cup! Try the burritos, delicious! So glad to have all these wonderful breakfast options in North Plainfield, and this one is tops! Ask for a coupon when you go in. This is my new favorite!

I fished catfish corner with a friend for about 7 hours... Used everything from hotdogs to night crawlers to cut bluegill. And nothing. Now usually I wouldn't blame the lake although for 7 hours none of the ppl around us caught anything! I just ended up using using my ultra light for some small bluegill.

I have gone to many "pay to fish" locations, and there is a reason people are willing to pay - because they want to "catch fish" quickly, and often; otherwise, you could just go to a small pond,...

My Boyfriend surprised me with a date to Plainfield Fishing resort. They have boat rentals (with motors), bait (minnows) and the lake is a good size. We had a nice day,however, we caught no fish! We didnt see many people catching fish that day. We will def try again though!

Thank starmami23
