    Yall boys give me some pond catfishing tips. My fishing partner has got permission to fish a pond thats 15-20 acres, that was built before Hartwell. He has caught numerous bass over 7lbs. I guess fish near the dam end? Its suppose to be around 18'. What bait works best in a pond? He has heard of big flatheads and blues being caught and released.

    Use a slip float and fish live bait a few inches to a ft off the bottom.
