Jump to new posts Oversized Cloverleaf trap? by Clay N' Pray @ 1 minute 19 seconds ago

My CC are near harvest size (1.5-2lb) and I am contemplating ways to harvest them without R&R. I'd like to trap them so they are waiting when I get home. Has anyone ever used a big cloverleaf? I have a normal sized cloverleaf perch trap that wor

I can understand the possibility of 1-2 females having the urge to fill a gap. Something has to trigger that. It also has to simultaneously trigger the males to the same condition. In WAE, I've seen at least 2 instances where an unbalanced population

Observing FH in the entirety of the 2ac wetland/forage/sediment pond. Catching lots of BH YOY that washed in from neighboring ponds. No mosquito larva though! Our valley has incredible topsoil that our dirt guy loves since his yard is only 5mi away.

Thanks, Snipe, for posting this smallmouth link. Fantastic stuff. I'm mentally ready to eliminate the last few LMB in my pond and switch to smallies.

The new cloverleaf with smaller openings is catching many more YOY BH. So far I've removed 17 adults and 35 YOY. 12 tonight in the forage pond/wetkand/sediment trap in just a few hours. Also catching GSF that are 3-6in, golden shiners and a few more

If it keeps going the way it has been, QA, I may have to shut my bottom aeration down completely myself. Just go with my surface fountain and let the deep stratify until it cools off again. A little DO is better than none at all. JKS...Last year, be

Four pigs and 250', I don't think you'll have many issues other than phytoplankton and algae. If it was a "hose" that ruptured, chances are the flow rate was low, probably 5-25 gallons per minute. Max, that is 9,000 gallons if it leaked f

Something else I added as an after thought was a dump valve. I only run one of my three diffusers during the winter and I thought my pump might over expand just one of the diffuser if all the air was sent to it. The dump valve exhausts air from the

You've got a pretty good BOW already. The F1's 'could' help but it won't be as easy as stocking some F1 fingerlings. If they are to be 2-3 in fingerlings or advanced fingerlings on feed ... I would just save the money. The former may not survive t

Trex is a bit over 2X as heavy as 3/4 marine plywood when both are dry. Trex doesn't absorb water but plywood tends to get much heavier if continuously exposed to moisture. Add carpet and I don't think there would be a huge difference after a few sea
