Fished Mazonia for the first time last week. We got on the water with one other boat around 7am. Was not quite sure what to expect but we fished plastics to get the feel of things. After a few hours and a quickly rising sun we got hot and headed home. Had some luck though and got 25 bass into the boat when it was all said and done. Nothing was bigger than a pound so im not sure if we were locating the wrong fish or if thats the common size. I was under the impression there were some bigger fish out that way. I would love to keep exploring, but Im wondering if its worth my time. Anyone get any good ones out there? Or maybe I should check out the other ponds?

Good Fishing to all!!

At this time of year you were most likely drawing attention from young shore patrol bass if you were just pitching the shorelines and reeds. If you can locate it, the bigger fish will be using structure with deep water access close by or heavy surface cover ( in Pondo, that is slim to none )

I've only been out to Mazonia about 10 times.
I can tell you, it takes some time to learn the areas and patterns of the fish throughout the seasons.

Thanks for the advice. Its strange because I thought the same thing. We fished steep banks and humps. Most of the action fell around 20-25 FOW. Im convinced there has to be big fish. Ill be out friday trying to find em again.

Just curious... Do lake maps exist for Pondo and Monster?
