I don't have a problem with mud, but my water level fluctuates significantly. Like Acousey I recommend the Water Primrose. They climb down the bank as the level lowers and seem to pop up when submerged. They float out from the bank a few feet and

That particular article is a bit misleading.. BUT, I can say if you see the silvery/grey discharge, that is indication of mostly shad content being run through the digestive process. As Bill suggests, I have no data either, nor have I heard of WAE ha

One suggestion is to have the kids move around the pond. Don't let them catch one fish on a spot and then spend an hour trying to get another bite!

I have heard of mixed results with F-1s in that general part of the US. Some have had success being growth and survival rates that were not unusually low. This means survival and ok growth but not at rates encountered in say Tenn (I-40) and south. I

I wasn't aware of the zipper technique but like roundy and Bill D. I don't press hard to the skin so that most of the red stays with the skin. I use the same method for catfish where instead of skinning I remove the filet with skin from the fish and

The shade should not reduce the hatching success because the eggs will receive some incident and reflected light. I am not sure the covering board will reduce the light to where the FA will not grow. Run a test with two egg ribbons one with covering,
