Nice fish! How big and deep is your pond?
Nice bass for sure ! :thumbsup: Did she get it on a plastic/rubber worm ? My favorite is 7 1/2 " Culprit in purple or black .
Thank you. When full, it's a bit over 4 1/2 acres. Right now it's down about 3 feet and I'm guessing that I'm closer to 4 acres of surface water. When full, the majority of the pond is 6 to 8 feet deep, and the deep end is 12 to 16 feet deep with a large hole that I dug that's over 20 feet deep. The hole is probably 30 by 60. I just dug it as deep and as big as I could with my backhoe in the bottom of the deep end. I also have four submerged islands that are around 50x50 that are in the deep are that come up to about 4 feet under the water with 4 to 6 foot drop off along the edge of it. Then there are 3 large stump and log piles spread out to create safe places for spawning and good hunting for my bass. The goal was to make it the best habitat that I could for the bass.
Here is a picture from last year when the water was overflowing the dam. One of these days I'm going to build a bridge over the dam.
