Mike,the well will cost a lot, so I probably won't be able to do it till we build.I also need to know where the house will set for sure before drilling a well.I know the back of the house will only be about a 100' from the pond, but may be moved 50'-

I'm not surprised, the RES I had in my aquarium a few years ago loved eating FHM although 2-1/2" was about the upper limit of what they would eat. They would try to eat longer ones but would spit them out if they couldn't get their mouth closed.

Only one windmill in a 1.8 acre pond will not adequately mix that size of pond. At the very best one windmill mixes acceptable amount for 0.5-0.7 ac. From my limited experience with spring fed ponds they rarely winter kill which depends a lot on amou

Need someone to hold your beer while you try that generator thing out? I've heard they work better while standing in the water. We need video's. Back when I was young hand crank generators were still fairly readily available by tearing one out of

A couple of pictures of a little RE who must have been hungry. It hit a tinsel minnow pattern fly that was 2.5" long.

Shadow, First, make sure of what type of weed you have. Take some good, clear, close up photos, best on a white background and post them if you can. Some types of chemicals work better than others on different types of vegetation. There are some p

I do not think it is an American Bullfrog tadpole based on coloration. It also differs from typical Green Frog tadpoles I see routinely in ponds. Others to consider include one of the leopard frogs as well as the Bronze Frog that is a close relativ

I'm thinking seriously about getting me a hand crank generator and finding out just whats swimming around my pond. Its too deep to be very productive with a cast net. The spawning area is about the only place it may work, but thats where all the stru

I wish I could learn to throw a cast net. I have spent hours and hours trying from time to time, but it usually lands in a heap. About one out of 10 throws is good.

So last 2 years I have been trying out how to maintain a pond. Playing around with sealing the pond naturally, controlling Green Sunfish, etc. Last year I let it dry up, cleaned it out, and now I have a really clear water pond, that holds water lik

I doubt seriously I'll ever see a truly balanced pond. Heck, I got no idea how many pan fish or BH I actually have. All I can do is go by what I see in the shallows and when I feed. I do know the LMB seem to have adjusted to their new home. I see th

Heck Bob, if you're planning on building on the property anyway, instead of putting $ into clearing ground to improve watershed, I think I'd invest in the well now instead!! I was really tempted to (and may still yet) tie into mine and route waterlin

They have been active here for over a week. The season for them usually lasts about five weeks here. I cannot recall seeing any after July.

Have you done a trial feeding with some Japanese beetles? Try to catch maybe 20 or 30 in a jar, then put a little water in the jar to wet their wings, then throw them out to test. Sometimes my BG don't eat them very fast, they don't seem interested
