Shorty, nice Smallie! If you had to guess, what is the age of the fish?

If I had to guess, it would be one of the fingerlings I got from TJ to feed train in 2012, or it might have hatched in the pond in 2012 from the 20 intitial stockers I put in. I did catch a 19-1/4" SMB last fall that I believe was one of my initial stockers.

Well done buddy! Beautiful and a testament to your fishery management skills in the micro pond.
Many men go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after. ~ Henry David Thoreau

Bet it was fun to catch. Nice smalley!
4 yr old pond, 1 ac, 15' deep.
I think that's about all I should put in my little pond.
