Besides being one of the most technically punk, ethnically diverse, and geographically surreal freshwater fishing destinations in North America, Prospect Park Lake is a sporty little joint for bass, crappie, panfish, and even the occasional lunker carp. The 50-acre lake's weedy structure and variegated shoreline can make for especially suspenseful and action-packed largemouth-bass fishing. These fish will often ambush rubber jigs, minnows, and worms with Southern-state fury (despite the flurry of ambulance sirens and UniverSoul Circus hoopla blasting from the p.a. across the lake).
