    yes, you can learn a lot from maps; what did you catch the 11lb bass on?

    I'm shocked to see bass of this size coming out of there. This lake was drained completely 4 years ago, and today seems to be a mud puddle void of life. Guess not!

    That one may have been full but the two in front of it were dry for 540 construction.

    The lake was drained and filled several times during the construction of 540 and various other projects near by. I work at NetApp, which are the buildings that sit right on the lake, so I get to look at it every day. Last time I went to look to see if it was worth fishing it was extremely muddy and seemed void of any life. I wonder if some enterprising folks have stocked it from a local reservoir. Even if they did you wouldn't think there is enough food to keep bass that fat and happy! Maybe there was enough water left to harbor life when it was drained years ago.

    thank you for shedding some light on this situation.. yeeah that makes a LOT more sense bc I have fished those front 2 ponds without a hit and it seems very dead as opposed to Lake Betz..I think that one front pond closer to Cisco Building #2 is Holt's Pond
