Jump to new posts Re: Clogged Drain Pipe by RAH @ 26 minutes 13 seconds ago

This particular culvert is elevated above the ditch bottom to trap water upstream. The whole area floods during heavy rains due to many field tiles in the watershed of a nearby creek. I suspect the water could have been running at less than half th

Depending on how deep your water is, I would strongly consider the American Eagle.

Thanks, I edited my post to include your information. I thought linking to the post was better than re-posting the pictures because the accompanying explanation might also be informative.

I tend to classify BG x GSF hybrids as being either BG dominant, or GSF dominant. Meaning they favor one heritage more than the other. I have both here in our pond, and one of the most telling characteristics for me is the body dynamic. Does it favor

Update: Still haven't caught the LMB. I think there is only one. The other strange fish that I thought might be a LMB came up for pellets and looks almost like a White Bass or HSB about 12" long. Beware of big bags of "FHM".

Right now, I'd be spending more time thinking about the plants for your pond than the fish. The pond is low and this is a good time of year to put them in. I think getting the right plants established can be trickier and more difficult than the fis

Jump to new posts Re: Crossfire feeders by Dave Davidson1 @ Yesterday at 03:05 PM

That 35 to 40 ft is max for some of the feed. Actually mine throws some 3 or 4 ft from shore and it covers everything up to about 30 or so ft. If I jacked the front legs up, it would all throw further. They have a pretty strong motor.

I still have a fair number of bluegills, and a few catfish and probably some LMB of a pound or so. Although I have fewer BG, I have more big ones - maybe about a pound - the biggest I've ever caught. If the otters lay off the BG but eat everything

Not a frog expert but I expect the tadpoles were hanging in shallow water when the freeze hit. The fish can search out different depths.
