As for the Familiar Lake, I'll be back always looking for for more fun catching. More fun fishing, and more species diversity. All fish got to swim away with nothing more than a cool lip-piercing and photo to show for their topside visit.
I never did find that "crappie hole" as described by a guy I didn't know. I didn't suspect I would. I had to fish the New Pond for the same reason people climb mountains; because they are there, because they pose a challenge, a puzzle to unlock. I had to return to the Familiar Lake for the same reason.....and because there are fish in that lake. Catching fish is ALWAYS more fun then searching for fish!
