Great thread NEDOC. Hope to see some huge HSB come out of your big pond in the future.

With weather getting cold, it was time to say goodbye to my pet HSB. It was exactly 4 months to the day since I got them from Keo. Once again, I can't say enough good things about my experience with Keo and how great HSB were to work with. Such an easy fish to feed train and raise. We started with 1200 fish, and I'm guessing we finished with a very similar number. All raised in a 1100 sq ft, 6 ft deep pond. The fish ranged in size from 4" up to 6.5". I'd guess 80% of them were well over 5" with only a few 'runts'. This was our second pull with the 50' x 6' seine. I'm guessing we got 60% with the first pull, losing some when the net lifted over debris at the bottom. We went much slower with the second pull and seemed to have gotten almost all of them. All in all this was a great project that I'm guessing cost me about $700. I plan to grow out up to 2000 next year and will update this thread then.

PS Sorry about the video quality. 8 year olds aren't great at running the phone yet.

Really neat project
It's not about the fish. It's about the pond. Take care of the pond and the fish will be fine. PB subscriber since before it was in color.
