If you turn onto Jacob Lane off of Route 123, about a quarter of a mile up is a parking lot. Park in there and follow the path down to the water. You will find a little dock to your right and a path out to a peninsula on the left. If you're fishing off the dock, you will see plenty of fish jumping about 75 feet out into the water, specifically around a submerged tree stump out about 100 ft. The peninsula is covered in trees but you will find about 5 access points that will allow you to fish some submerged branches, bushes that run into the water, and a large collection of lilly pads. The dock is also a great spot to fish with kids as it is often surrounded by perch and sun fish.
My suggestion would be to get a canoe or a kayak out there because the access from the shore is limited but there are a lot of great spots that you can access in a boat. Unfortunately, Jacob's is a protected conservation land so there are no motors allowed out on the water. If you do take a boat out there I suggest starting at the northern end where there are a lot of lilly pads and inlets. Also in the northern section of the pond is a large submerged branch that holds a lot of fish. A friend and I dropped anchor around it and pulled about 8 fish in in about 30 minutes.
If you want to drop a canoe or kayak in, I suggest getting directions to Duncan drive where you will find easy access to the water.
