Instructions for water lily indicate a 1% solution of Polaris which equates to 1.3oz per gallon of water. For some of the other tougher vegetation such as spatterdock, they suggest a 1.5% solution which is 1.9oz per gallon of water. Instructions sugg

Check with local feed stores that sell bulk lime by the truckload and will deliver and back up to pond and sling it in. ( itís how they disperse to fields). 360$ for six tons , Iím 25 miles from them Have your water tested first!

I've always wondered about the correlation between Alk and PH. I added 500 pounds of aglime last spring and that only brought my Alk to 40. My hardness is still zero, but my PH stays around 7.4. I use a litmus stick to check Alk (which also checks PH

I use tires to as FHM spawning structure set in 1-3' depths in a few ponds. PVC also works well for FHM spawns and both last forever vs. pallets or shake shingles.

I like everything except maybe the need to harvest even more LMB. But they are pretty aggressive, and either people or the raccoons will eat them.

I would add 3 to 4 inch bass. I once bought 100 one to 1.5 inch bass for a creek on my property. I acclimated them and then ease them into the water. I was watching 2 of them that were side by side. Suddenly there was only one with half the other o

Should I aerate?
Jump to new posts Re: Should I turn off daytime aeration? by Mike Whatley @ Today at 10:15 AM

I'd leave it where it is and take some readings first. See if you have a thermocline in your deepest area they can retreat to. If you dont have a thermocline, then you can adjust run schedule and duration accordingly.

Vast majority of morts sink...many that float and make it to shore are harvested by scavengers overnight, so it's hard to determine the extent of a kill event if judging by floating morts. I'd guess less than 10% of morts would ever be witnessed bas

You would be better off spending the $ on adult forage fish (Tilapia , BG etc.). Need to be sure what and how many you have now , first.
