That is one pretty bronze back.
.10 surface acre pond, 10.5 foot deep. SW LA. The epidomy of a mutt pond. BG, LMB, GSF, RES, BH, Warmouth, FHM, Longear Sunfish, Gambusia and apparently, now crappie.

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.
