Eric West, Ewest here, has some pretty good pics. Hope he sees this. I like artificial structure leading from deeper water to shallow. Humps, ridges, etc all seem to erode over time. I also use cedar trees in shallower water. They seem to disappear i

Should I aerate?
Do you have any sort of dock or deck that jets into the pond? I am in mid, lower Michigan, around Midland, we have a fishing deck that I run the aeration right at the deck in about 2-3 feet of water, and close down the two I have in deeper water for

Used to get them from a bait dealer in Baton Rouge, deadly on almost everything: CC, CNBG, RES, LMB, you name it. We'd put ice in the bottom of the bucket and use mesh to keep PK above it in moss. They didn't survive well totally immersed. Be awar

Hi Matt, Welcome to PBF! I recommend you have the soil tested before making any amendments. The test results will give you the info required to know how much, if any, Ag Lime or other supplement you need to add. I'm sure if you post the results o
