Here are a couple fish pictures from the main pond. A CC and a GSF I am trying to grow to trophy size. The GSF went back in the pond to grow, the CC went in the holding pen to join us for a meal. Been thinning BG over the last few months. Filleted p

Evaporation rate directly depends on the difference in water surface temperature and the dew point temperature of the air. Wind is another factor. Aeration, particularly at night, would tend to lower water surface temperature, thus retarding evapora

I don't mind getting the hybrids. In fact I kind of like that. But either I am not getting the RES fingerling production or I am not getting them in traps like the GSF (which is possible). I need to seine it but all my grandsons have grown up and mo

I think that a ground-water sand pond vs. a sealed and compacted clay pond would not require as much pond building experience. The only recommendations I would have is to make sure and plan for large fluctuations in water level. This means a floati

Dustin, Thank you for getting back to me here. I like the idea of less fines or powder that is thrown into the pond water when I use my TH feeders. If you have or can reduce those fines, it has to be a plus in reducing fertility in pond water. I m

I looked at it from a satellite. His 20 acre guesstimate is pretty close when you consider all the fingers of the strips. There is a LOT of shoreline cover in the form of dead trees, but I don't know how much shallow cover there is for YOY fish. B

I can attest to crawdads keeping a pond clear of all vegetation. Even though this was not a controlled experiment, my pond, before renovation, had filled in to only 2 feet deep, but had NO vegetation at all. The water was always muddy with NO sign
