    He kept it on leash as he wanted to show it to me - then turned it loose. I am sure there is some other big large-mouth bass in there. Also some big channel cat and a few grass
    carp that probably go 20 lbs or better. After cutting off fishing for the last 4 years I was not sure what the fish population was, but looks to be very healthy.

    I used to fish in a pond below the first telescope I worked for. It was a secondary water catchment a bit bigger than your pond, and years ago someone had stocked some small mouth bass. The ones I caught were 6-8 inch range, but there were also some truly huge monsters lurking down at the bottom, fish big enough to go after some of the smaller ones that I was pulling in! I tried making up a streamer fly that would tempt them, but never had any luck on the big ones.
