    Question Pond Management, found a 6#er and want it to grow.

    So I just moved to Dobson, have 2 ponds on my property, maybe an acre each at the biggest and about 6 foot max depth. My dad and I took a break from moving my family's stuff and wet a line. He landed this one, we figured close to 6#. I caught a couple others around 2.5-3# as well.

    Thinking about adding some forage for them and maybe a brush pile or 2 for structure. Thoughts?

    Looks like they're doing pretty good without any help.

    Go to Pond Boss Forum (totally different site). Those folks are serious about all aspects of Pond Management, with several certified experts on there all the time.

    But, it would be fun to grow one to 10 pounds!

    Gotta be more than six feet or that big one would have never made it that long. I'd look at trying to get some deeper water in there if in fact it really is only six feet at the deepest. Natural springs maybe? Look into the local Southern States and see when the "fish truck" is due in your local and see about stocking bullnose minnows and maybe a few F1 hybrid bass to invigorate the local gene pool.

    Ton of good advice on Pond Boss

    I would definitely add some structure (Christmas trees/PVC), but those are some nice bass!
