Thanks Dale! Yes, super difficult to catch the pond-stocked fish in Iowa!
Part of the reason, I think, they are easier here is...in the creek and river, there is pretty much NO aquatic vegetation. So, all their food is drifting downstream or falling into it from above. Whenever anything hits the water, they rush to investigate and be the first to it. If they aren't quick, they go hungry.
