The fish are biting again

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.

Couldnít see the scales. Weight?
It's not about the fish. It's about the pond. Take care of the pond and the fish will be fine. PB subscriber since before it was in color.

Boy, if I say "sic em", you'd better look for something to bite. Sam Shelley Rancher and Farmer Muleshoe Texas 1892-1985 RIP

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.
