Found this pond recently and you can see schools of bass cruising the shoreline, something I usually see before they spawn. But if you so much as even step on a leaf 10 ft away from the shore they spook, the second anything hits the water or comes near them under water they spook. They wouldn't even look at anything I swam passed them. I have experienced this before but never this late in the year, the schools ranged from 2-4 inch bass, 10-12 inch bass, and even some schools of a few big ones. Even the tiny bass wouldn't touch anything, which usually where ever I go the baby bass can be caught close to shore. I fish for bass often at many different ponds and haven't experienced this anywhere else??? This pond has very little access and I know hardly anybody fishes it, could it be these fish are actually not used to human activity? You would think that would make them easier to catch! Anybody else experience something like this this time of year?
