The fish are biting again

Description
Spent all winter wondering if I would regret turning my aerator off for the winter in South Dakota. After a wet spring i still hadnít seen a fish in the pond. And only caught 3 fish all winter. I was worried I might have lost my fish with the crazy icedeprh and snow cover we had.

This afternoon I snuck out and before I even rigged up I could see 3/4 different age classes of BG and multiple LMB swimming. As I waited on the next bobber to plunge I was even greeted by the resident Walleye. 18 inches when I put her in, as he swam by. I have a lot of success on my pond catching the 2/3 in bass and throwing them under a bobber. For the predators to attack. Thatís how I hooked on to the 17 in LMB in the picture. My pond goals are big YP and BG. I rarely throw a LMB back unless itís one of the 3 original stocker fish. I also caught one of last yearís YOY YP. I have small mouth coming in a month after that I will never let a LMB into my pond again. The first three were put in long before I read and realized what prolific breeders they are.

Just wanted to give a shout out for all the questions and answers given on this site. Iím usually just a type in question, end question with pond boss on google and see what you guys have to say.

I thought I posted two pictures. I couldnít get it figured out yet how to add another one. The LMB in the picture was just over 2lbs.

C Peasy, resave and post the pics with a".jpg" not ".jpeg" extension. My guess is that should fix the problem.
