That's a good one, it was way better a few years back when it was almost dried up! I used to walk around the edge buzzing a weightless zoom swimmin super fluke on the surface and you could catch 15 of them out of there in an hour or two. Caught a monster warmouth on said fluke out of there too. I think at one point it dried up completely and all the fish died but it looks like it came back quite well. The pond up the hill is very good too at times.

Wow. I can't believe you know where we went just from a few pictures. We tried the pond up the hill yesterday afternoon and didn't catch anything. Kind of doubted any fish were in it. Sounds like there are. Extremely hard to fish with whatever the vegetation is (sorry I'm new to Fl). I've found 3 really good ponds in the forest, and about 10-12 with no fish or dried up. I don't understand why there are so many dried up ponds. In the year and seven months I've been here rain has been abundant. Of course middle Ga where I moved from had the same problem with ponds and wells drying up. We catch and release so they are still there.

The answer to the vegetation is a zoom horny toad and a 4/0 hook. Preferrebly with 15+ lb test or braid.
Nice fish! Thanks for the report!

That was a good report and you left the fish for someone else to also catch. That was good! I would have ate um
