Pond Fishing Basics

pond anglingPond fishing is the method of fishing in a body of water that has a photic zone throughout its entire width and length. Essentially this means that aquatic plants can live across the entire length and width of the body of water, both above and below the surface. A pond can either be privately owned or publicly owned so always make sure to get permission from the owner if it’s a private pond. Some of the most fun fishing can take place in a private pond with little pressure from other anglers. One of the best features of ponds is that if you use a pair of polarized sunglasses on a very sunny day then you can get a good idea of what type of fish reside in the pond. While most fish in a pond are relatively small there is always one apex predator who is king of the pond.

Creel limits are important in ponds because the fish population isn’t that large and everything is a part of the food chain. By removing too many bluegills, for example, you could have certain types of aquatic insects flourish that could decimate important aquatic plants that provide breeding beds for those same bluegills you removed. Most pond anglers will also want to avoid using live minnows if possible and if you do use them then make sure to never dump left over minnows back into the pond.
