so i fish this pond at my work during the summer time and do a killing for Crappies and release them good 10" size crappie... so today i fish it on Ice and Discovered that the deepest point of the whole lake is less than 4 feet. WOW. and the Ice was about 3-4" i drilled about 10 holes with out a fish finder and aqua-vu and dident even find any fish at all? do you think the depth of the pond can cause the fish to not even strike b/c its too cold??
Weird stuff man. My family has friends that have a pond in their back yard about the size of a basketball court with big trout and carp in it. Problem is that I havent been able to catch either one since about the second year after they stocked it. And I know they are still alive because you can see them. Anyone know why?
does the pond have an airater (a bubble maker) oxegen? if not then I agree with the last post sshhhhhh be very still don't move your asking these fish to take a lure 2.5-2ft. below your hole. a better idea is fish a bigger lake with better ice fishing conditions slayer will give you a spot to color in. lol j/k
