For about three years now i thought that there were no bass in my pond because i thought they died off. just recentely i saw three bass in the pond since they took our fountain out for the winter.I through every thing i had at them and they didnt even look at it. Heck i threw out some fish food(a.k.a. dog food) and they didnt even go after it. they must be very smart so that would be the reason i havent caught any forever. What do you guys think?
