Small Farm Pond

4 posts in this topic

I posted this last year. My dad has some land a camper near maple lake on one of the many small or medium size farm ponds. Their is a guy that traps minnows on it. He was fishing last week end off of his dock and he managed to catch some healthy suckers, some perch and a few bullheads. Do you guys think this might be the only species in the lake or with having the above three could their be, pike, small mouth, crappie, sunfish, or even a walleye. Please let me know your thoughts because I'm not to familier with the Maple area ponds. Thanks guys

It almost certainly has pike then. No smallmouth, maybe some largemouths.

Well i grew up around there and there is a good chance your gonna have pike in there. I fished alot of the small lakes around maple and know of some stories of some local small lakes with pike in, and largemouth. would be interested in which pond your talking about i might know a little about it. 15 years ago we dragged the boat to alot of those small lakes. Was the only way in. And they had fish in them.

Not sure about the walleye depends on if the lake is connected by a up stream or down stream, or none.

With perch, suckers and bullheads in thier. Do you think stocking crappies, sunnies or walleyes would work?

      Buddy and I went out yesterday around noon. Fished for a few hours was a little windy but not to bad. Only got a small largemouth and one decent gill. Only fished for 2-3 hours tried all over the small lake we were on. Ooh well still nice to finnaly get out. Planning on taking the yak out on opener do a bass/pike/ walleye trip so exited for that. Few nice gills you got there rick!

      Any reports? I know there was a lot of people out there. The boomsite access was already 3/4 full when I drove by at 5 AM. I'm thinking about going out of blufflands park on Friday.

      Kinda cold and windy yesterday. Fish really didn't seem to mind though. Finding ggod sized fish was the goal for the afternoon. Started off in a feeding bay that has a section of deeper water in it. This deeper water is where I found all my fish. Crappies were holding tight to the weed cover around the hole, while gills were closer to the surface. It wasn't fast fishing by any means, still I managed to find some real quality pannies

      I have two Vexilar transducers.    1) Thru hull/trolling motor- used.  From FL8 2) New never used, high speed.       I looked on Vexilar's site, The one's they sell say FL8 or FL18.  Checked FAQ and they look like they are interchangeable with other models???  Can text pictures-what do you have?
