What's In Here?

I've been meaning to check this location out. Isn't this a man made pond? I don't remember it being there before. How can fish be here if it weren't stocked?

it was stocked last year. i've tried it a couple times, as it's down the street from me, but never got anything.

I tried it a couple days ago and had no luck too. The lake/pond is new so it will probably take time before it gets better. The water clarity was very low too but I did see some baby bass minnows.

I fished here once. Caught a 11" LMB less than 6' from shore working my spinner thru a weed maze. Only fish i have ever seen come out of there. According to the report i saw, it was stocked with Perch, Bluegill, Sunfish and Largemouth Bass.

LegendInProgress is correct. Catfish as well. Only a few years old so don't expect 8lb largemouth coming out of there.
