His story was that they were kicked out for gate lock up but that the company worker also told him that he “didn’t know what happened there after he left,” which meant access to the pond. In one afternoon Charles and his friend got into 30 bass. They vowed to keep it a secret from other people, but Charles is my boy so the next morning we hit the dredger pond.
There were two ponds, one of them the size of a small lake. Amazing that you wouldn’t ever realize this size of a body of water was out there unless you were intentionally looking for it.

|Long and skinny bass|
|Eating something off of the bottom?|
A few feet away I had another fish on. A smaller bass but definitely more of a fighter. Charles made his way further around the lake. I switched to a buzz bait to see if I could provoke a topwater bite. I also had “Bonecrusher” with me, which I fully intended to use later in the day.

|Quick one for the road!|
So the fabled pond is a producer. It It has hungry sometimes unhealthy looking fish but I know if we would have stayed a bit longer, we would have really slayed them. Not sure if we will be back there but we sure will try.
