I just got a text/pic from Young Blood. He's letting freedom ring right now for some lucky fatheads.

Burger, let's raise a toast.

So is he releasing forage base or did he just buy a keg for the frat house? It's hard to tell from your post.

JHAP, unfortunately, I'm only able to answer that question if you have a Rum & Coke in hand.

Sorry, I had to get back to tax returns (I hate it when that happens).

A belated, but none the less heartfelt...


OH SNAP!!!

We also got some rain on Friday. It was just enough to soak the watershed and to fill the ditch going to pond but none of it got there. I cleaned out part of it so that the water can get to the pond easier.

Chris,
I have considered providing satellite service for my fish, but never made the commitment. My fish are jealous!

According to the radar we received at least three inches of rain since Wednesday. The water level came up about 3 feet. Only 4-5 feet to go.

I had a PVC tree on the right side of the ditch but it got knocked over so I may go swimming for it. This weekend I will propably place a few more.

The upper end is cleared for seining. I am giong to try and place some BG condos in the ditch on that end though.

Better have a good feeder and plenty of pellets for those LMB as there is very little natural food for them (assuming the GShiners are not adults yet).

Unless we get a bunch more rain the fish won't be stocked until this fall. I may stock some BG from a friends pond that he is renovating to get the food chain going as well as a few more pounds of fatheads.

The golden shiners were 3-4 inches. When do they start to spawn?

They'll spawn at that size... Do you have any vegetation or FA for them to spawn on in the pond?

GSH prefer to spawn over vegetation, their eggs are adhesive. They will also spawn over other material like gravel and wood, but they prefer vegetation. I have had the most luck with them spawning on fine leafed species of pond weed.

Does anybody have some ideas for floating fathead spawning structure. Since my pond is still filling up I don't want to put anything in right now that will be 5 feet underwater when the pond fills.

I was thinking of tying gallon bottles to the corners of a pallet.

I have used the foam insulation sheets. They float on the surface and FHM love to spawn on them.
