The first day I went, I walked up on a guy that was using a stick as a stringer for an 8lb bass he had just caught. He asked me if the fish was ok to eat, I told him that I normally throw bass back that are that BIG. But I do not pass judgment on people that want to harvest a fish as long as it is legal. Later on I noticed a sign that read "please practice catch and release" but honestly that fish had been out of the water too long, it wasn't going to make it.
The only reason I went to this pond is because I ran into a guy that works for the City of Rockwall and he said that Phelps lake is the only pond that they keep restocking large mouths in. I have been a total of three times. I have seen an 8lber caught. I have caught two 5lbers and six that went from 3lbs-4lbs. The pond is flooded right now due to recent rains, I was wading out and fishing a Texas rig on the flooded fishing pier and throwing spinner bait along the damn. There is some really good structure to fish out there, but only accessible by kayak. I am currently looking into buying a kayak....haha

I'm thinking Nate is probably right.
