    Around four acres, the photo only shows part of the pond. 12' is the depth by the dams (yes there are two dams) there were two large gullys and one dam was kept open to allow the water to drain while building the pond.The average depth runs 4'-6' with sheves and under water islands for structure for the fish.The pond fills with area drainage.

    Thanks for the info.

    I have 2 to 2.5 acre shared pond. When we were looking at the house I asked the real estate agent the same question you asked. I thought she had a clever answer. If it is in a cow pasture it's a pond. If it has houses around it it's a lake.
