or big bream can be dangerous. My son found this 6 lb. bass floating dead in the pond. He pulled it out to find a huge bream stuck in its mouth. We hated to lose both. In deference to Rivergeezer, his bream would choke a goliath grouper.

That is sad to lose a bass that size. The pond may need some more forage (flathead minnows, shiners, etc.). I have seen 2 lb. bass dead from trying to swallow 1 pounders, but my experience with ponds in which such incidents have happened is the bass have eaten all the smaller fish and are are forced to attempt to swallow whatever they can.

In such desperate situations even the Nightcrawler and Peddler can catch fish! :lol:
