It's a nice little park and I know it has some fish in it. I don't think the bass are very big in there though. I'll have to check it out in the spring when the bass are bedding to see if I can find any bigger ones. I've only caught one bass there ever and it was not very big.

Glad to see the pond is doing well and producing. Good catches!

Thank you. The other two blow ups were smaller fish too. One seemed to be maybe a pound, pound and a half. I guess the pond is so small that it can't support the biguns. I'm wanting to try Oak Pointe next.

Don't let the size of the pond fool you. I've seen big ponds that have nothing but small bass in them, and small ponds that have big bass in them. Fisherman13 caught a 4+ pound bass in a pond so small you can literally cast from one end to other. It like 20 yards wide and maybe 40 yards long. I've seen more than one in there that size too.

I wouldn't be surprised at all if there was a grandma in there that's wise enough to know not to bite the same old stuff that gets thrown.

Good luck at oak point. I've haven't caught anything there ever... except a snake.
