Found this forum this morning and decided to join because of all of the great info I found. A little background info, I live in SE La but our pond is in SW Mississippi on our camp property. It was an old cattle pond that had washed through the levee and was less than 1/4 acre when we bought the place in the summer of 2016. Had it cleaned out and enlarged to just under 3/4 acre in 2017 and stocked in the fall of the same year.
