I love it when they tell me there are no fish left in a pond. Between the rancher selling water out of this pond to a fracking company a couple of years ago and the drought before that, it was drawn down to a big puddle. It filled up with all of the rain last year and seems to have recovered.












I told everyone they were right. There are no fish in there.

Some of my best fish have been taken out of ponds that "had no fish in them".

Very nice.

I had a 3/4 acre pond just about dry up on me. One day I had almost 70 catfish die all at the same time that where from 5 to 12 pounds. All the bigger ones. Then as the water continued to drop to just a puddle, I decided to dig out the bottom so it would be deeper and have some holes in it in case we had another summer with temps over 100 degrees every day. I dug down as deep as I could with my backhoe and probably made it a couple thousand square feet. Then I drained what water was left into the hole and was shocked at how many fish where still alive in just a few inches of water and super slimy mud. There was easily hundreds of them in there!!!! Most where just fingerlings, but a few where a bit bigger. Since then, the pond has filled up and remained full. Nobody has ever fished that pond since then.

I made that mistake uttering no fish in that pond. Then my buddies started pulling slab crappies and 2-5 lbs bass out of a tiny stock tank hammer

BTW good catches up
