Not mine, although I wish I could have something like this

It's about 18-20 feet long, about 3 feet deep, and 8 feet for the depth. It's about 6 feet at each of the two at the back then where the 'filter' is is also about 6-8 feet.

It's at an Asian supermarket (it's actually 2; both look the same)

wow, that reminds e of the farm pond I was just talking about.....surrounded by cover and thick brush mostly and only fishable from a few cleared spots on the banks. Is yours spring-fed also? My great-uncle also taught me to stand back 6-10 feet away from the water when you fish a pond or lake from the bank.....basically, stealth - he said it keeps you out of the fishes' line of sight, avoids casting shadows/reflections, etc, etc.

I guarantee if you got lunkers in there, slow-rolling a Crappie-Spin just above the weedline will get them to hit.

Sadly it isn't spring fed. I have a feeling that after watching the bass hit dragonflies in the shallows tonight that fly fishing should be a fun experiment this upcoming weekend. At night I'll probably try to see see how big the catfish are. They're at the point where they are taking 5" bass off the end of your line if you let the fish out on a loose drag.

definitely over the 24" range....Channel cats have small mouths....I lost a few Sunday morning on the hookset because my creek chubs were too big at 6" or so ....I was only using #1 hooks too. 24"+ is generally when I catch them on big chubs and suckers

Bass on fly is a blast....have fun with that. You can toss a nightcrawler on fly tackle, you just don't false-cast....you just get it out there and wait.....channels would be ridiculous on fly

Not really mine but under my supervision at work, this is just post ice/snow melt, needing some nitrogenous loving pond plants to clear up the water as well as UV sterilization turned on!
