It was so bad it almost made me stop and turn around. But Eager to fish a new pond we proceeded towards the pond. When we got to the edges of the pond we noticed the water was extremely low, and there was a lot of small piles of thick green vegetation.

But we were able to spot A small group of small fish classified as bream. We packed up And trekked back to the truck and went to fish another nearby pond.
