When we stocked the lake there was one albino fingerling that we noticed. Now there are a number of albino catfish and this past weekend Jack caught the largest one so far.

Albinoism in CC's must be a dominant gene.

This thread is incredible. I have just recently purchased a new home with pond and hope to create the same memories you have with yours. I am 29 and look forward to having my 11 month old have the same great memories you have created for your children and grandchildren. Thoroughly enjoyed spending an hour reading through this and aspire to one day be able to create a fraction of its awesomeness.

Thank you for sharing and inspiring a pond newbie.
Randy

Thank you Randy - your comments are much appreciated. Good luck with your new pond. I'm sure you will find it as rewarding as we have found ours-a pond never ceases to bring great pleasure.

Over Memorial Day weekend we held our annual family reunion here with forty one in attendance. All had a great time-will be posting some photos soon.

Last week Jack set new records for both SMB and Catfish. The catfish was 11.8 lbs and the LMB 6.5 lbs. This is the third time this spring that the LMB record has been broken.

Opps, that was a typo. Glad you caught it. We do not have SMB in our lake.

Thank you both very much for the kind posts. Happy to keep the thread going - it's been a fun ride fixing up the property, sharing it with family and friends, and sharing the experience with this thread.

Last weekend Scott, several friends, and their kids spent the night and did some fishing. Here are photos of some of the catch.

Caught a lot of bass in the 5lb range


And one albino channel cat.


A 3lb wiper.


Best of all a new record (for us)channel cat - 14 lbs.

We had a great family reunion this year with 41 attending. Friday evening through Monday of Memorial Day weekend. Here are a few photos from the event.



The Cornhole Tournament is a serious and fiercely contested event each year with numerous teams entered. It's a double elimination tournament and takes an entire afternoon.


This year we had a new championship team. In the finals Scott and Jack defeated the five time defending champions Shawn and Brett.






Cooking up some Low Country Boil




No time to waste-lunch on the go.

A lake has many valuable uses. For one, a frozen lake makes a good place to chill the Thanksgiving Champagne.

Having Christmas in a warm cabin on a frozen lake.



But we did have to go out in the cold to cut a tree.


If the tree is tall you need a ladder to decorate the top.

We are spending six cold winter days at the farm and enjoying it very much. Our only heat is the fireplace but we are staying toasty warm.



It was a little chilly this morning.


A very cold night but the strong wind kept part of the lake ice free.

A new channel cat record for the lake, 12.5lbs. A second thing to note is that my grandson is now as tall as I.



Here is a another photo of the two of us taken in 2005 when we were clearing out the trees for the lake bed.

Lyle, those boys have a way of doing that. My little Grandson is now 6'2". I have shrunk about 1/2 inch during the time he has been growing.

Thank you all for your comments. Four of five years ago we planted a wildflower mix on the mound across the lake and have been enjoying some good color since. This spring was big on purple and it lasted for at least six weeks. Now we still have blooms of various flowers but not as spectacular.
