    I highly doubt the fish will make it very long...being that stresses out, and if it really is as old as they say, be snapped out of everything that fish has known, and dumped into some small pond....Sad but I think the fish is on his way out....:sad2:

    i think he will make it okay,l9ong as no idiots are messing with it and there is a nice supply of oxygen like a spring or something in the pond.

    Yeah with no aerator or natural spring that fish is doomed. I went back and watched the video It looked like it swam away pretty good.:confused2:

    never make it that fish needs current and very deep water and there is not enough food source in that pond to keep him feed he will clean out everything in that pond .should have released it back into the river

    hate to see them put in ponds like that, all i can say is i would have snapped pics and maybe tried to get to a boat ramp and keep her in the water to see if a dnr guy could come to me cause that fish wouldnt be leaving the river. that fish isnt going to get much bigger in a pond.

    Thanks for the post. That's exciting to see a fish like that caught, although it's a real bummer it wasn't returned to the river.

    If I was going to do anything other than release it too the river. I would donate it to an aquarium like the guys who caught splash. That fish lived many years in the aquarium and really had it made. Didn't have to compete for food or worryu about boat props and the like. I am sure those guys will do right by the fish.

    According to the guys interview, he contacted Bass Pro in the Cincinnati and in Missouri. Neither one would take the fish, after he realeased it in his pond, Bp in Cincinnati called him back and wanted it but it was too late. You would think it would not be to hard to catch the fish again in a 1 acre pond if they decided to come get it for their tank. It would have been neat to go check that fish out in person...Would have been even better if it was released back where it came from IMO..

    I agree that fish should have been put back in the river. I dont think it will last long in that little pond.
