I was able to make an afternoon trip, thanks to an abbreviated school work schedule and spent a couple of hours at a friend’s pond. I caught and released 11 bass, 2 catfish, and four big bream. The bass at my friend’s pond have always been very skinny and malnourished-looking. This concerns me, especially during the spawn. I’m thinking we have to harvest some of the big catfish and many of the bass so that we can get a healthier, larger population of bass in this pond. The pond is a couple of acres and gets down to 12 feet deep. If any of my followers have any suggestions to make this a better fishery, please chime in!
