Thanks for the confirmation. It looked to like things were on track, but I still have my training wheels with this pond miestering. Pictures of the gsh a year ago look about the size of the small fhm in the above picture. They should spawn this year,

Based on what you have stocked the minnows in the net are FHM with a few golden shiners mixed in; both appear to be thriving and the offspring growing.

Looks like salvinia to me too. That stuff completely covered my 14 acre duck lease pond and killed every bit of the widgeon grass. Very invasive. There is a weavel that will kill it, otherwise itll take chemicals to irradiate it. Or you can wait for

How deep is your pond, and how deep is your deep diffuser? You can run aeration during the heat of summer if you are able to maintain a thermocline, where cooler, less oxygenated water exists. They cant live there, but they can escape the heat tempor

A LMB can eat anything up to 1/3 its length. So a 6 inch bass will target prey up to 2 inches long. As they get bigger, so does their food requirements. A 12 inch bass is going to seek out the biggest prey it thinks it can swallow. You could introd

Looks like I was pre-mature in my judgement. Used a small beatle spin and caught several bluegills about 7-8" and several small bass. Lost one bass that looked like a two pounder when he threw the little hook. Caught a couple that were around

Jump to new posts Re: Should I turn off daytime aeration? by DrLuke @ Yesterday at 07:59 PM

Do you have a way of measuring the water temp in your pond? Daytime aeration in warm weather can raise the average temp of your pond, and cooler water preferring species like WE and YP can get stressed (or potentially die) in too warm of water.

Hello, my 3/4 acre pond in Northern Ohio has WE, YP, RES, GSH, Bluntnose & Spotfin minnows. Built in the fall of 09, I have never turned off my windmill aerator. I've read a few post that promote evening aeration during the summer and would lik

Thanks. The old pond on the property is very old and has 100 ft trees growing on the dam slope some of them dead. The overflow pipe buried in the dam is corroded and shortened by several feet. The trees will have to come out to restore the dam int

I have no experience with this feeder, however I've tried multiple feeder manufacturers and my original TH continues to run without fail going on season 10. I've purchased or been gifted 5 other feeders during that time for half the cost of a TH uni

Bryan, thanks for the update! Sounds awesome all the fun you get by your pond! Sounds like you need to patrol the area regularly and get some game cameras with the trespassers there. You would probably know, as long as I have a mallard duck pair o

What you have is some dandy sized green sunfish. They have erratic spawns so shouldn't overload the pond. Bass can pretty well over run anything less than an acre and stunt, Also, it takes Bluegills to spawn enough to feed bass. Heck, I'd leave wel

I would PROBABLY add about 50 bass, maybe 100. The trick is to have enough predators that they could concentrate on the small BG leaving a slot for only the bigger ones. However, at some point some of the bass will always get big enough to get some o

I've owned this pond for about a year and only fished it a little.I was told that it went dry in the 2011 Texas drought and hasn't been restocked since. These fish are 7"-9" I'd guess. I've heard them called all sorts of things. I just call

I figured out my pond is about 5,186,160 gallons. 3 regular vertex diffusers will give me almost that (8ft average) in a 24 hour period. So 6 diffusers should put me turning my pond over twice in a 24 hour period. Is my pump enough to handle that?
