Thanks beast for the reply. I was told the only way to cure a overfished pond was to poison it and start new. That sounded a little drastic to me. Thanks again for the info.
WHAT?? Then it's just going to get fished hard again once it's restocked and you'll have a bunch of overfished dinks. If it's your buddies privately owned pond he could always make it off limits for a year or two to give the fish a break. I've had the chance to fish a couple smaller lakes after they had been closed for a couple years and they're usually pretty incredible when they first reopen. At the very least he might think about being more selective about the people that are going out there.

It was so bad that people were crossing over each others lines. Turns out most were using small crappie jigs, live bait and spinners. I threw a few trick worms and had decent luck. So much so that people would come over and throw to the same spot.
Long story short I don't fish this very often but for my son he has a blast as its small no wind and flat banks

I'll tell you another thing that is fun imo, I went out one day a 2 springs ago and was throwing a shakeyhead. One guy constantly telling me that I needed to switch from b/c and start throwing UL or my baits was to big or something. Was giving me grief over throwing a shakeyhead instead of a wacky rig. Kept going on and on bought how I wont catch anything bigger than he has or the numbers. I work my way away from him and bam, suddenly land a 5#'er. Bunch of kids are flipping out, he's close enough to know. I take a pic and start looking for him, he's shaking his head getting in his truck. Have not seen that guy there since and I got probably twice a week.
