Default New Ribbit lake Record

Couple of weeks ago I caught a 9.5 Camelot and was the new Lake record. Well she didnt last long. Caught a 10.25 lb Camelot today. Canít say enough about how awesome these fish are. If youíre wanting to stock bass pay the extra and go with the best. Trying to post a pic but canít get it to load. I can text pic to somebody .

Had the 10, 7, 6 , 4 for my four biggest today.. Lost 4 other big fish that didn’t stay buttoned. Caught several in the 3 lb range. These Bells are built like hybrids. Not long..but short , fat and thick. Fight like freight trains.

Roy there may be a few bigger. These are 4 yr old fish and Iím guessing the original stocking. My guess it will probably be this fall or next spring before bust the 12lb mark. Need to remove 300-400 bass 16Ē or smaller this yr. And yep same lake we buried your boat trailer in mud.

Very nice fish and really cool in four years. What conditions does that strain require? A good friend of mine re-did a pond a three years ago and it has a bunch of 4-5 pound bass in it, now. It’s good sized but not too deep, probably 8-9 feet max. I wonder if that matters?

Our lake is 15 acres and 40ft at deepest. We let baitfish spawn for three yrs before stocking with Camelotís, which are a genetically superior Florida genetics. We also have been putting approx 10k threadfin shad every spring. This yr we will add gizzards. Our threadfins are spawning and thriving. Starting last yr we remove 300-350 bass 14Ē or smaller. This yr will bump it up to 16Ē.

Do you get your threadfin shad from Todd too?

You need to put this on the Pond mgmt thread. Those fish had a heck of a good start with all that bait they had in there. Wow.

spring fed, run off, or well? Any issues with algae or hydrilla? Assume you have protein feeders going?

Nice, Iím sure the baitfish make a big difference. He put a bunch of bream in it when he filled it up & waited a bit to stock the bass. Its a 40 acre pond but we werenít sure it was big enough for shad. Sounds like it might be worth a shot!

This lake is fed by two seasonal creeks, no spring fed. We have a big watershed as well. Algae and Hydrilla is starting to be an issue. Have been issued 15 Tripolaid Carp permits but haven’t stocked. No fish feeders or anything
