How common or rare?

Recommended Posts

New to this all, how common or rare is it for a 15 acre lake to have a lot of bass 6-9 pounds, we have started tagging the fish and look foward to tracking them, have tagged 40plus over 6 pounds (using a digital scale) (I don't know how to upload photos, it says past the ".15mb limit"

Any help with pictures? I have quite a few, I've personally never seen anything like it ( which is why I'm posting)

Welcome aboard!

Make sure the images are saved as JPG
and perhaps reduce their size...?

I've not had problems with JPG files...

It is not uncommon for a small lake to have a lot of large bass in it. It's all in the way that it is managed and has nothing to do with the size of the water.

We have a couple of small lakes that produce some quality bass. Those lakes don't have a lot of pressure and most people release the larger fish to be caught again!

I'll keep posting.  Lots of pics, just can't seem to figure this out.  There have been 40+ tagged since October of 2015 and only 3 have been re-caught.

I've fished a lot of places and never seen anything like it.  That's why I was asking.  As far as how its being 'managed' - up until October of last year, it wasn't even being fished.

Those are some extremely healthy bass.Lakes that have good amounts of 6-9 pounders like that are somewhat common down here and in other areas like Georgia,Texas,and California.Whats not common is actually catching 6-9 pound bass often,that is a clear sign that you got the lake dialed in.

thats awesome!,... guard it with caution ,...Its not a "common" thing,..  but, ive found a few tiny ponds that produce larger fish, that most anglers wouldn't of even thought about fishing there due to their small size and accessability,..you'd think someone had planted them in there, but i know otherwise. theres no "clear" path to them, basiclly untouched surroundings, and nothing but naturally occurring biodiversity,..ie; baitfish, frogs, crayfish etc. 

 what ever you do,..dont "buy" live bait and dump your leftover bait in the pond and mess with the biodiversity, its working,... dont mess with it.

Wow,  those are some pics.  I'd keep that place top secret.  Up north that would be a rare place like a little utopia.

Caught my first 10 + lber out of a 1 acre pond, actually that day I broke my PB record 3 times in that very same pond, so in a 15 acre lake is possible to have a big bunch of 6+ lbers ? oh yeah.

The lake I fish most often (and also why I fish it) is about 20 acres and has a lot of bass over 5 lbs. It's a sign there is plenty of bait and good quality water.

No way to tell from the pics, but I'm an expert.  Send me directions on how to get to this place and I'll gladly assess the population for you.

Looks like a great place! Maybe you stumbled on one of Bill Dance's ponds? Hehe. Just kidding.

I'd guard that place like Fort Knox. Maybe the property is for sale? :D

Carrying capacity of any body of water per acre is dependant on predator to prey ratio of food supply, climate and habitat. Looks like everything is balanced at this time period.
