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?

      So, what was YOUR ice show score of the day!? I'm heading down on Sunday to see what scraps I can dig up. Absolutely more excited than I should be considering the only ice I've seen so far is the kind that fits in a glass..

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later
