Sonar looks like an attractive option. My reservation is not the price because it looks like a once and done for the season option. But, I'm not sure if I want to wipe out all vegetation completely for the fish's sake. My pond is sort of a kidney

Thanks Bill and ewest for the input. I will try some smaller bundles too. I was keeping them tighter thinking about giving the FHM pockets to spawn in where the bass canít get them. Increasing my bluegill recruitment is my goal with this project.
