Do you love big bluegill?
Moved into the new location (Western Maryland) last weekend. I've had a chance to fish my 1/4 acre pond about 3 times so far. I haven't been able to locate my tackle box yet, so all I've been fishing with are small meps spinners.
The bass are biting, but nothing larger than 14". I've caught two healthy bluegills, but nothing to write home about. I'll take pictures of the fish whenever the phone finally sends them to my email.
Problems with the pond appear to be a very grassy/murkey bottom. The water also appears to be extremely clear.
Goals for the pond will be fun to catch sized bluegill for my son. The bigger the better. I have no problem managing, harvesting and whatever else needs to be done. Research is to start soon. I think the first thing I shall do is look for feed for the fish. I don't expect to set up any feeders, but I'll probably walk down and throw whatever amount is required in. It's a short walk to the house and I like looking at it.
