The Type of Water I usually Fish is..

Recommended Posts

This should give a good understanding of what type of water most people fish. Also will be good to know who else fishes the same type of water.

Mark me down for small pond!

I just left one of the best Bass fishing spots in the country. I usually fished Kentucky and Barkley lakes on the Tennessee side. I will admit though, I will not pass up a chance to hit smaller lakes and ponds for those big fish. Now I'm fishing Tuttle Creek and Milford in Kansas

I mainly fish a 300 acre man-made lake.Also fish a few 100+ acre lakes,and when I get a chance,I fish some small and medium ponds.I like to float a few local rivers this time of year throwing small white spinnerbaits(H & H is my favorite).Usually catch a ton of bass while floating rivers,but they're all pretty small.Lots of action,though!

I fish a 308 acre man made as well as a river (the ol' susquehanna) for the majority of my time on the water. I will occasionally hit a few 5-10 acre ponds and small creeks just to mix it up. I like to get to large lakes when I can, like Onieda, Cayuga, etc.

I live on a 7,500-acre natural lake (Lake walk-in-water, FL).

Though I probably do most of my fishing there, I also fish lakes & rivers

of various sizes in numerous other locations (freshwater & saltwater).

I went with a medium pond since this is where I spent most of my time so far this year fishing. I do switch up and fish a couple small man-made lakes (505 acres and smaller ones) as well as a couple rivers too in MD and PA.

I need an "All of the Above" to click on. I fish them all. If it holds water and bass I am there.

I couldn't really pick just one. You should have included an "all of the above option". Plus, you forgot to put a "Saltwater" and a "brackish water" option, both of which I also regularly fish.......

You guys would laugh at the waters I fish but not having a boat yet I'm stuck beating the banks for my bass.  I used to fish one that literaly looks like a mud puddle compared to the ones you fish. I stopped fishing it because I really didn't think it was fair to the fish  I will go out and take pictures in the next day or so and post them them you will understand what I mean by not being fair to the fish.  But I do have others I fish that range from 1 to 2 acres

My home lake is a 125 acre man made.

Virtually all of my fishing is done their with and occasional foray to larger bass waters and the brackish snook, redfish etc. intercoastal waterway.

I fish small ponds and rivers probably about equally I do catch more fish in the ponds. I have to say I'm surprised that small ponds are in the lead.

I usually fish 7200 acre Smithville Lake which is a man-made reservoir north of Kansas City.  However, I also fish some ponds and small lakes quite often, as well as Truman Reservoir which is 55,000 acres.  Smithville is the closest to my home, so I fish there the most.

I now fish the Stick Marsh/Farm 13 mostly which is I believe +- 7,000 acres. It is a man made lake. I have also fished allot of natural lakes here in Florida. Most are natural and vary in sizes from a few acres to the largest lake contained entirely in the US the Big O. Though I have never fished it. So I can't count that one.

Wow, I'm surprised I'm in the minority here.    We fish Lake Champlain which is huge compared most other choices.    Lake Champlain is approximately 600 square miles (384,000 acres).  :o :o

I'm wondering if we should vist some of the smaller lakes around here.
