Big lakes get most of the attention when it come to fishing for big bass. What too many anglers are missing is the excitement, and the potential to catch a big largemouth out of a nearby farm pond.
More than 3 million ponds are in the United States. This means that if you do not own a pond yourself, you probably know somebody who does.
Fishing at a pond can save money on gas, and allows an angler more time to fish in most cases. The reason for this is that instead of spending time in an automobile driving to a far off lake, time can be better spent fishing a nearby pond. And the money you save on gas can be spent on more important things.
Ponds are capable of holding lots of fish, and not just little fish. A well-managed pond can hold truly monster-sized bass, and other fish. Also, statistics show that an angler can catch twice as many fish from a managed pond in an hour compared to fishing an hour on a lake.
