Hey Bob,
Thanks for the shout out and for spending so much time on my questions! I'll try to keep them shorter in the future :-)

Enjoyed it! Thanks for answering a few questions. I have been reluctant to add trout and have my perch and remaining forage get hammered over the winter. Seems like I would be OK.

Bob, if you want to answer my ? regarding removing bluegill through the ice on my pond during your Live even Wednesday, feel free.

http://forums.pondboss.com/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=485255&#Post485255

Should I be pulling some (or all I catch) of those 4-6" bluegill out now or let the recently stocked LMB (175 6-8") and HSB (100, 6-11", most 10") chow on the little guys

The live broadcasts are a very good idea. It is like a personal pond clinic online. I watched the session using the link to the recorded broadcast. All the broadcasts should be listed in a post in the Pond Boss archives or on the home page. Lusk is a Facebook "movie star". Modern technology and electronics allow great things to happen.

Enjoy the broadcast, can't usually join the live session as I am coaching my son's bball team but watch it later.

Carrying Capacity Questions / Harvest

I have a 0.6 acre, 1 year old pond.
Adding aeration this Spring and hand feed quality food 1 to 2 times a day. Goal is quality fishing with high catch rates, not looking for a trophy.

Stocked over the course of last year:
30SMB ( 20 from Yolk ..thanks to Rainman )
50 HSB 8-10" ( now 12-15")
100 YP 6-8"
150 HB 4-6" ??? This abbreviation is not on our PB List.
Should be 150 HBG
85 HBG 6-8"
75 RES 4-6"
15 lbs FHM

My pond is fished heavily in the Spring/Summer and mostly by kids. I assume a 5-10% of total population harvest/fish kill due to handling / hookset etc by the kids. It seems the HSB and YP are more susceptible.

My questions,
What if any additional harvest should I do this Spring/Summer? Could I add some more fish? My idea is to keep it somewhat of a put and take to keep the bite good.

By using the link below I estimate my carrying capacity around 250lbs, good estimate?

Of course you can never know exactly, but assume best to observe water quality/ fish health/ growth rates etc...?

http://forums.pondboss.com/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=201295

Thanks for the time

Pumpkinseeds for southern waters? Looking to add some variety and enjoy catching them up north. Downsides ?

I couldn't get the live feed to work. I used a free online tool to paste the link for the video in and get the audio file extracted. I can then save the audio file and listen via my computer. I'd post the audio file but it is 30MB.

Zep,

I had some difficulties this past broadcast. It would show up like it was going to join the event and then just spin and do nothing. I don't think it was my connection as that seemed to be working fine. The previous two broadcasts worked well for me. I'll try again next week. Thanks.

Zep, me too, got stuck multiple times at the 3-5 minute mark. I had to find other means to get to the audio. Not sure if the pond boss can create a copy and try to repost a new link or if there is some other fix. The video seems corrupted.

I have a 28MB extract of the audio that I'm happy to share but not sure how to host as too big to attach in the forum and might be too big for me to easily email to someone else.

Hey guys.... LeighAnn here from the Pond Boss office.
We now have the Facebook live videos on our website and on our YouTube channel. I am working on the 1.17.18 file right now, loading on to YouTube and getting it on the website.
Should be up by the end of business today.

Thanks guys! If you ever have any questions or problems, let me know. I'm glad to help any way I can.

Thanks Leighann, where on the website will be the archived videos? If I go under the video tab and try to replay there it gets stuck.

Maybe the new version you are putting up will be in a new place? I'll try the youtube version once you get us the link.
