I found a spot that currently is mine and mine alone. As far as I can tell this peticular pond has never been fished. It is about an acre or 2 in size and has very healthy fish that are very nice size. The gills are small but the bass are fat and large <!--graemlin::D-->
I fished it for the second time yesterday with my buddy, and man was it a blast. For a while we were catiching panfish, but when a monster bass nailed a gill that I was reeling in, I was amazed, shocked, and speecheless. I had no idea that these kind of fish were in here. When it happened again I switched over to blade dancer, and whamo first cast I caught a nice one. In the corse of an hour, my buddy and I caught abut a dozen each, and most all of them were over 2 pounds, some over 3 and a few over 4 <!--graemlin::D--> <!--graemlin::eek:--> I had one get away, that was definatly over 6, maybe 7 pounds. I havent heard my drag scream like that in years. <!--graemlin::eek:-->
It was amazing how these fish reacted to lures, probably something they have never seen before. Fish would miss a bait 3 times and still come back for more.
Here is a pic of one that we brought home, that was 4lb, 15oz.
