At this rate there will only be a few bass ponds left and they will be packed, lost 2 last winter and 2 this winter AND Highline was drained for dredging, not sure how bad that is going to be. There were monster cats and bass in there

I think the ponds are quite cyclical and the fish will return. I have been seeing some nice bass in 6-10' in other spots.

I believe the amount at highline will easily allow the fish to carry over. Not sure when they will re-fill.

I've got some ponds up here that are looking pretty sad too! My best crappie hole is still capped. I'm pretty worried that it could of winter killed, I iced it twice this year and didn't catch near the fish that I normally do.

When winter kill occurs do the fish just die and stay at the bottom or do they eventually float after ice melts? I'd assume they sink but I've never really experienced winter kill
