    Stock it with more bass... gotta make sure not to over populate it though. Contact the local fish and wildlife expert/officer in your area and they should be able to help answer any questions you may have.

      Yeah bass aren't gonna show up by themselves. You gotta stock it and make sure you don't overstock it but also makesure nobody comes in and fishes the whole pond out.

          Depends on how big you pond is and the food source you are offering and where you live. If the pond is small and you live in the north where it freezes hard, you may never keep bass in there. If you have a 1/4 acre pond and 5 bass in it, you may never get more bass if they are constantly competing for food. Lots of factor play into this equation- come back with some more details and I can send you in the right direction.

            i would say stock it with other bass and other littler fish so the bass can eat them or put anything else that they eat in the pond so they dont die from starvation.

              matouse3 is right, gotta know the size and depth. It it is big enough, and deep enough, then catch some bass from another pond/lake, and put them in there.

                make sure it's not illegal to transplant fish in your state but make sure to keep a good balance of panfish to bass though otherwise you'll stunt the growth.
