2013 in August, I was fishing in a private pond ,about an acre. I caught a Brim that was 14 and 1/4 inches long. Camera was at home on charge. This friend let's me and two others fish his pond. He hand feeds these fish, which is a sight to see. the pond has bass and grass carp and brim in it. These fish are so big that they bend a light rod down. He let's 3 of us and his grand kids fish it. He doesn't fish for his pets. All fish are put back in the water as soon as caught. If hooked deep, he asks that the fish hook be left in the fish and not to be removed.
I have been a Brim fisherman all my life since about 5 years old. I grew up in Monticello, Ark.
I have fished most of my life in TX, LA, AR., so to me they are Brim. The last 5 years ,I retired to Gahanna,OH. To be close to my son and his kids . Who I am trying to teach how to fish. My son believes you can only catch fish in a lake not a pond. So, he doesn't want them fishing in a pond.
I have a 17' Pan Fisher Tracker boat with a 9.9 motor. I sold my 18' tracker Bass boat for the Pan fisher. Runs a little slower,hurt my back real bad 2 years ago. This boat is better , on my back.
I would love to find some more fishing friends and new ponds or lakes to fish. I do fish all the lakes around Columbus OH.
