Thanks for the update. I hate it when I read old threads and they just leave you hanging on what ever happened. Thanks for coming back and letting us know.

This was the contents of the first cast of the cast net tonight. 9 RES and 11 or 12 GS. No GSF (yea!) Biggest RES in the picture about 4-5". Second cast I got about a 6" RES. All came out of this pond and went into the sediment pond. Afte

Based on my experience, I'd recommend discontinuing any fish feeding while geese are on the lake. Tough to do at a remote site, however.

Same here. I have a road all the way around the main pond and any time I drive the Polaris UTV around it you can see wakes coming at it all the way around. The UTV is the fish "dinner bell".

Jump to new posts Re: Cleaning feeders? Tricks & tips? by anthropic @ Yesterday at 07:18 PM

Just be careful about leaving feed on the ground around the feeder. Ants are drawn to the area, and then you may find unwanted guests the next time you open the feeder. I speak from personal experience, unfortunately...

Been dang busy around the farm this spring but have had a chance to do a little fishing the last few days. Good news on this main 3 acre pond is that I caught a couple of LMB on the 12"+- range. Picture of one below. Was fishing for small to me

Thank you John, The CC have been relatively small with relatively poor growth. That said we've caught and released CC up to 4 lbs which I think are about 10 years old from the first stocking. I saw evidence that the pond was fished for catfish las

Bullfrogs eat small fry size fish, as will small water snakes, and of course, bigger fish.
