I also stocked small numbers in my second pond. I really enjoy the process and watching things unfold while nudging them in the direction that I want them to go. For me, the top priority is wildlife value.

Hey Bdog, If it was my pond (and it is not!) I would cover the liner with a foot or more of relatively stone free clay or soil and maybe add a few spawning shelves out of the clay as well. My thought is the clay "liner" will protect the m

No - the size ranges from 80 to 500 acres and even in big waters there are large swings in crappie recruitment. You need info as there is something unique to your water if its as described.
