What do you do when it's cold and rainy and you can't do anything at the pond? I read the threads I have on my watch list. I started out with over 25 pages of them and now down to 17 pages. A few things that I have learned:

It really does "It all depends" Too many variables.

There are some real knowledgeable people on here.

Some information is above my head but some people can explain it in layman's terms so I can understand.

Patience is a virtue. Some pond problems just take time and can't be fixed over night.

It's cheaper to fix a balance problem with a rod & reel than with a fish truck.

And lastly, I wish to be a member of the GREEN SUNFISH ASSOCIATION Hope I can pass the extreme vetting process.

You should look up and read the threads on RES (red ear sunfish). They are hilarious!

And I am in full agreement with your other observations. PB forum is an amazing resource, made so by it's members. Glad you are here too!

bigpullerman - Based on your post and summary, I think you are being a bit modest about what's over you head. Boiling things down to their essence is a real talent!

Thanks for the kind words. I still have over 16 pages of topics on my watched topics list to read through. I have saved several and will be probably several more. There is a wealth of information here. I also have my Pond Boss magazine to read also. Only so many hrs in a day and this work just keep getting in the way.

Speaking of cold rainy days, I hope the Ohio Valley pond meisters have their snow tires and firewood ready, looks like another round of winter weather is hitting the same path as last time. So strange to have a snow-free MI winter this year.

How is it in Arkansas?

I have both! I'm just hoping for the rain and snow to melt to fill my new pond.

The vetting process is much simpler than you imagine. Just send a thousand dollars to my address and you are in like Flynn. grin grin

Not bad now but this weekend is suppose to turn colder. Lows in the 20s. I know that is not much for yall up north. We have been pretty seasonable with lots of rain. Highs 40-50s lows in the 30s. Just too muddy to do anything around the pond.

snub
$1000.00 Is there a payment plan? hahahahahahaha Maybe I can do one of those go fund me things.
