New pond record 3.9# and 18.25". Not bad for a two-year-old fish.

That first one is a football!

Second one might be a spawned out male with tail damage from nest fanning.

Wow! That is a lot of work. I would do the same just to be sure that I can have a pond that is carried by suitable environment. Keep us posted with your adventure.

I had Bob Lusk Outdoors come do our first electrofishing survey end of March. It was a blast even with 20 mph winds and 45 degrees. The three of were all hands working so no action pictures. I actually didn't take a single one, but my son took a couple. Thanks Justin Stain for all the info and boat skills. Not easy in those winds!

Everything looked good, we boated a lot of fish, and finally saw a RES for the first time since I stocked the pond. Looking forward to read the full report! Thanks again Justin and Bob!

Sunset



This has been a not so exiting year, but one thing that did happen was brushy pond weed. The side effect of that was over 12 foot water clarity at lunch today. I can see most all my structure that I have put out since the construction. Some is covered in the pondweed.

I have been doing a lot of land clearing and brush pile burning and putting the burnt tree stumps in for structure around the edges. I'll try and post a few pictures of the stump structure.

Also added 4 grass carp last month to start to help with the brushy pond weed...

BrianL the place looks nice and the pic is cool. How about your report after the e survey? did you need to do any adjustments to the fish population? Didn't you originally stock the Tiger lmb , how are they doing? Catching any? And I also wound up with a bunch of bushy pondweed. I added 3 per Gcarp acre recently (5 per acre were recommended) and I hope the will hit the BPW and not so much of the APW.
