Went to Barbour Ponds today. Cold as hell. My wife and me were bundled up like it was winter. Stayed there five hours. Caught three bass about 12". BUt now to the point. Barbour ponds is pretty much shut down. When the started doing all their renovations to modernize the ponds the shut down the first lake to car traffic. You had to walk to access the first pond. The bass were located on the south side and that is one hell of a walk from the north side. Then here about two weeks ago they put up two gates and shut of access to the south side of the big lake and the small lake, lake #2, once again stating that renovations are goin to be made. So today my wife and I were fishing and we saw a road grader digging and moving dirt all over the south campground, which no longer exists, and rolling dirt into the big lake. You could see from the north end of the lake all the deposits that were floating in the lake. Fish were everywhere on the suface sucking air. Carp, Trout, Bass, Sunfish. I hope they are careful or there will me a major kill at this lake!
