I've been fishing this private pond/lake (5 acres) since I was a kid. It is by far the best pond I've ever fished. The owner now gave control of approx. 1000 acres (including this pond) to a 2nd cousin of mine who watches over it for the owner in return for free reign over the property. What I would like explained is this. Yesterday went to fish this pond and the guy in control (2nd cousin) said a friend of his took 50 2lb bass out of there this year for a fish fry. I don't get it. I used to catch fish all day long out of this pond anywhere from 1 1/2 to 6 or 7 lb. Yesterday I went and caught 3/4 lb'ers. I've never kept a bass in my life unless it for some reason died when I caught it even 6-7 lb'ers. Why would you keep 50 2lb bass out of a lake? Somebody please explain it to me.
