There's little question that most Huron County bass fishermen are going to be plying their sport in farm ponds, and it can get a little ho-hum at this time of year after a long spring and summer of fishing. If routine is becoming a problem, I've a new way of enjoying your favorite activity. I call it "the farm pond walk around." A one-acre pond is ideal for this brand of fishing. You can do it in a half acre spot, though it's over then too quickly, or in a two- to three-acre little lake which might take more time than you have available. I try it a couple of times a year in one pond or another, and the basic idea is seeing how many bass I can catch (and almost always release) on the trip.
