We got 2.5 to 3 inches in Shreveport, only about half an inch at my BOW. Sigh...

I have a 16 gallon sprayer and mix 1/2 gallon Cutrine Plus when I fill it up. It sprays about half way around my pond and always works fine. On a hot sunny day the FA around the bank where I started spraying is already turning brown by the time I u

Jump to new posts Chara question... by anthropic @ Yesterday at 08:21 PM

Seems virtually certain I now have chara, sometimes called muskgrass. Can't mistake that garlicky smell! Spreading pretty fast, though mostly in the shallows so far. Here's my situation, and then my question. Situation: alkalinity in 40s, pH ab

I have spent some time thinking and reading about aeration as a result of esshup and Bill Cody's comments. I now think I was being lazy or naive (kidding myself) that the creek flowing through my pond was a water quality panacea. My pond is oval

Looks good but you may have a problem of washing dirt out aroung the edge starting a new wash to the side. Trick is to keep the water flowing against something that will not erode. Try what you have and add as needed.

I'm surprised how aggressive my perch feed, they are competing with HSB and HBG, and eventually SMB but I didn't expect to witness them feeding as often as I do. They do hit the top and go right back down. Have had luck with small spinners but mostly

bill, I was wondering if they would come Laggis fish farm. I think I will stock 6 of the 3-5" and 6 of the 5-7" this fall and do the same next year. and I will also add 8-10 more HSB next spring. then I will see how the recruitment goes ove

Thanks. Definitely strong garlicky smell, crunchy rather than slimy. Almost certainly chara. My pond runs somewhat acidic, which may limit chara's growth to some extent. I've fished chara BOW before and it efinitely enhanced the fishery so long a

RC, one thing to consider is that GSH will be there year after year, unlike TP. Especially if you have some pond plants where they can hide & reproduce! Also, thanks for the tip about posting pics! Best explanation I've seen on PB. The forum
Should I aerate?
Jump to new posts Re: Should I aerate by John F @ 06/22/17 07:26 PM

How effective is a large fountain compared to bottom diffused aeration? How effective is a paddlewheel?

Jump to new posts Re: Does FA make good compost? by teehjaeh57 @ 06/22/17 07:11 PM

Just layer nitrogen rich FA [if its green/moist] on carbon material [leaves, etc.] and allow it to decompose. Lasagna type layering is very simple composting method requiring minimal effort.

Dinsmore - your goal of numerous 3 lb bass is achievable. To get it with consistency and dependably you will have to closely follow the suggestions noted above. If it were me, for my initial stocker bass, I would get them from American Sportfish or

Bill D that was a very good question. I gave you some results but not a real good explanation of why that occurs. I will do some looking. I have some guesses but have not seen a scientific "why" in scientific journal/paper. My WAG would be

They will eat the AM600 if that is only thing available they prefer LMB pellets I hand throw when I'm at the pond site. I started throwing the LMB pellets for the HSB as they grew and perhaps that is when the LMB caught on.
