Dave,we are supposed to get the same thing.They say we may get a few small thunder storms mixed in and they did up the amount we may get to 3"-4",but they say it will be a slow soaker for the most part.

Jack, a couple more things to consider. Only the top 4 to 5 ft of water are usable by the fish due to lack of sunlight penetration. The rest is a non oxygenated dead zone called the thermocline. The fish can go there but not stay. If your pond goes

Thanks for the response Cody, appreciate it! Good questions. What do you think is a good depth to go for? There are almost no deciduous trees around, only coniferous, so there should be limited leaves that go into the pond. The pond is also kept full

I just finished building my 1.25 acre pond and it has begun to fill. My question is how much of different types of cover should I put into my pond. I put 4 bunches of christmas trees (3 trees per bunch) along the sides in about 6 ft of water and ha

It is a model number of a pump. I think you can order them several places. It is a detached rotary vane pump that you combine with a motor of your choosing. Pretty simple to do. A while back I did lots and lots of looking at pumps and the 0740 wa

I typically take them through food size 1.75 to 2 lbs and start from 8" to 10" in spring having the ready for harvest by following November. When starting from smaller 1" fish in spring they can get to be just shy of the 8" to 10

I agree with Mr. Cody about having a trophy panfish pond. I think you will be very limited on bass quality. And i never liked the idea of hbg due to the gsf offspring. It was almost impossible for me to get 5 inch bg after the otters got in my old p

One acre of deep water is MUCH easier and cheaper to manage than 2.5 ac of shallow water. Do your homework well before pulling the trigger on the bulldozer. Too much shallow water will be a manager's headache especially in later years as the pond age

They are predicting over 4" of rain between tomorrow and Saturday. That should add some water to the new pond and flush the old ones! Should clean up the metal on the new barn too. Wish I could have gotten the landscape fabric and rocks aroun

After seeing the video, I could see where cormorants might be a good thing. First time I ever saw a good reason for keeping them around. The problem is I don't have any whales in my pond, so they need to keep their arse in the big waters and out of

Have you thought about what options you have for aeration? It provides lots of other benefits and is good insurance for the brutal winter years. otherwise, I would say try to understand what made the water quality different this year since you sa

I will try to get some pictures or catch a few this weekend. When I say “fry” these are a little bigger than freshly hatched. I am thinking they may be BG fry that hatched this Fall or something. Either way there is a ton of them about an inch long.

Are we differentiating between viable and fertile? Not all hybrid sunfish exhibit skewed sex ratios and you can get skewed sex ratios within a species like the bluegill when rearing only a brood resulting from a single-mating.
