I haven't been able to find any regulations that prohibit gas motors but I have heard that it is a no motor area. There's not really a ramp, just a dirt launch area. I had a hard getting the trailer in deep enough water to push my little 14' boat off. Had to pretty much winch it on all the way.

The few trips that I have made to the pond but I haven't caught much. There must be something in the pond because it drawing a lot of people. I was quite surprised at the number of boats on the water Saturday. The parking area filled up pretty quick.

Guys, from what I am hearing about this pond, I believe I would have to find a new hole. The Cape Fear in Cumberland and Harnett Counties has a lot of good fishing. I have caught nice crappie, bass, cats,(of course), a few stripers and hybrids, brim, etc. You might want to hop in the boat and give it a try. I would get pretty frustrated at that Rhodes pond.

There are ramps all up and down the C.F. The wildlife website probably has a list of them. I going in the a.m. myself in the N.E. Cape Fear. Going to kill some stripers and cats I hope. The cats I am sure about. The stripers can be a little iffy.

Actually it's considered godwin. I was confused when I went there the first time. If you want live bait however you need to get it in Dunn, Erwin or Fayetteville. No bait shops left around the pond.
