Excellent bluegill - be proud to what you are doing in that pond. It is great that your mom caught it to see your good efforts for raising fish.

Thanks Bill I agree I love seeing her catching the big ones. I have plenty of time left to catch them. She enjoys it so much and being there with her makes it all that much more special!!

And of course none of it would have been without all the good folks out here guiding me along the way with all the GREAT information out here on pondboss! I know for a fact this was a team effort and not just a me effort!! Thanks everyone for sharing all your knowledge and power with me that has allowed me to get this far in pond management!! smile

I've never seen a 2 lb BG. You may gave a State record.

I have learned that ponds make great memories. I bet she never forgets about the great day of fishing and spending that time with you.

Hey Anthropic I feed them only about 6 to 8 bags of AM 600 each year other than that they are living off the pond and its natural wildlife!! Which I do have a lot of by the way!!

QA I am not sure I am worthy to be anyone's pond mentor / role model. lol. But thank you for the kind words!! The one thing I tell everyone is you got to be patient. None of this happens over a year or two. It has taking me sense 2010 to get this pond where it is but it's been big time worth it!!
