Default Hidden Gem: Tamarack Fairways

I've caught a 6 pound largemouth there (back in like 2003). You could fit a 2 liter bottle in it's mouth. Giant carp, schools of white bass. Respect the golfers, go in the evening on weekdays. Duck down when they are teeing off. For the bass, use the manns baby 1- or a regular spinner or a buzzbait in dark colors. This place is amazing. We even used fly tackle and killed it. My friend and I went every day after school from about 1998-2002, then during summers after work during college. Park on "Royal County Down." Hit the water on both sides of the street. All the water is connected, and it is all good. Some of the golfers carry rods in their golf bags. I even caught a snapping turtle on a tube jig one summer. I've only been kicked out once.
