Appreciate you guys sharing this.. It confirms the papershells I bought are not papershells, they are in fact Northern Crayfish. I'll have to share this with the farm I bought them from, he swears they are papershells.

If you filet them be sure and remove the blood stripe with a v shaped cut . With the blood stripe removed the muddy flavor will be gone.

Very nice Mike! I'm a newbie to fly fishing myself, early this spring I bought a 3, 4 and 5wt setup just to see what I may like best.. Definitely an art to fly fishing I'm a LONG ways from being proficient at. Enjoy the new rod!

Should I aerate?

Joey Quarry, We are working in dirt here, more specifically clay. The flow is diverted around the dam until the construction drain is covered by the core and dam. I may have overestimated the amount of water flowing into the area because I donít thin

All, I stand corrected. There are spring lizards not tiger salamanders that occupy the aforementioned property. They arenít a threat to FHM populations. So option 1 or 2 if it were your new 3 acre pond? Thanks for suggestions!😀 Heppy

So Iíve been thinking....would the heavy duty agridrain trash guard or a cattle/goat panel about 6-8 foot long 3-4 feet width/height rectangular cube be my best option for the draw down trash rack to avoid issues associated with accumulating debris.

I had some perch in a cage for catfish river bait purposes, and had a big problem with small to medium sized snakes sliding in and gorging themselves on fish to the point of not being able to get back out through the mesh.

Realistically, they claim 24hrs one way or the other. We get them back in approx. days since hatch. So far since using this method on the same lake we pull eggs from, I don't believe we've ever had anything outside of 30-35 days estimation. That's fi

The ultimate goal in my pond is to grow large HBG not record RW by defect. Although I do think about the uniqueness of stubby and somewhat regret taking him out. He certainly looked dwarfed and not injured and partially recovered.

PS X BG is a very common cross especially in more northern waters. I would agree that those look like BG x PS. See this thread for great pics. http://forums.pondboss.com/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=99961&page=1
