How would smallies do in...?

Recommended Posts

How do you think Smallies would do in a small pond/lake?  I know smallmouth like current but technicially, could they live and be healthy in a small pond?  There is a 4-acre lake I help stock with lots of cover and about 15-20 feet of depth in the deepest part and we have always wondered how smallies would do in it.  Here's the thing though, it's not just an idle lake, it does have springs underneath it that keep it full and I guess probably refresh the water a little too.  How do you think they'd do here?  

*DISCLAIMER*  this is just a thought, idea, or whatever, not actually going to happen so if someone is opposed or appauled by the idea, it's just that...an idea.  don't flip out.

I used to fish a pond in New Hampshire that was maybe 40 acres or so, which is quite a bit bigger than what you're describing.  Anyway, the pond was shallow and had a lot of classic largemouth bass cover, but smallmouths were the only fish in it.  It was awesome.  Then this guy from Florida who summered on the pond dumped some largemouths in and they took over.  I still remember catching my first largemouth out of the pond, and I was like "Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaat?"  I fish for largemouths too, but that pond was so perfect for smallmouths.  Anyway, I would think that what you are describing is a possibility, but it is true that smallmouths seem to belong to bigger water.  Good luck.
