I'm right there with you quarter. Having my pond right outside the front door has definitely made it convenient to just pick up a rod when I get to Jonesing too bad to catch a fish. That doesn't mean I'm gonna sell my boat any time soon tho!! I've g

You've come to the right place Groundhawg! Do you have any idea of the culling rates of the other fisher-people? What about your culling habits. Do they/you fish a lot? Do they/you keep a lot of bass? Are there any size limits, slot limits, or

Florida LMB are notoriously difficult to catch on artificial lures, especially as they get bigger. Also, I wonder if the plethora of panfish might suppress bass spawning?

Thanks. FINALLY caught a RES out of this RES pond. Nice 7" female that has the classic RES snout and look. The fingerling YOY SMB just kill me. Got to thinking maybe I was catching too many. But then I set in one spot on the pond and caught ab

Jump to new posts Re: Compaction by Hogfan @ Yesterday at 10:39 PM

I gotcha - in that case, your compaction should be fine with the right moisture content and good clay material. Iíve not hit limestone before, but we have hit what I considered to be soil parent material that we found out was silt stone. Very blocky

Jump to new posts Re: Siphon Spillway Information by Hogfan @ Yesterday at 10:15 PM

Nope, it wonít matter. What puts it into siphon, and is the driving force through the system, is the elevation difference between the water level in the pond and the outlet elevation. You should be fine. Good luck!

I would suggest mix the starter about half with BG Jr. Once they get about 5" they start to prefer the larger pellets.

I should also mention, my diffusers aren't the disk type, their rubber membrane tubes, so there is minimal interference with current.

Jump to new posts Re: Small Pond - Big Heat - will aeration help ? by Mike Whatley @ Yesterday at 07:36 PM

Hey PS, The floating pea soup may be blue green algae. One way to tell is to gather some in a jar and seal it for a couple of hours. If it smells like acid when you open the jar, that's most likely what you've got and you can treat it with algaecide.

The drain gate on the side of our stand pipe has rusted and broken open draining the lake down about four feet. Any suggestions for how to repair the gate? The water level is still about a foot above the gate because the springs that feed the lake

Catching fish by various means is interesting to say the least. If I put a minnow trap out with feed in it, a person might think I only have GSF in this pond or sometimes GSH. It is kind of funny, if I catch GSF I sometimes catch quite a few at a t

Hello, I am seeking some advice. We have approximately 200,000 gallon spring-fed trout pond. Over the years, we have developed an anchor worm issue which hasn't resolved with the pond freezing. Most likely, because the females continue to stay warm

Yeah, that's why I like the Ruger rifles as a suppression platform. So much noise comes from that damn bolt opening and closing. IMO, bolt or lever action is the only way to go. Originally Posted By: Clay N' PrayOriginally Posted By: JKS3613Nice set
