Sound advice guys. Thank you! I definitely think itís wise to get a better picture of what I have in my pond now befor I make any big changes. I have been keeping records of whatís been caught so far but donít think Iíll get a better picture till spring when the fishing starts picking up.. I only have a tiny snapshot of a handful of times fishing it in the least productive time of year. I am still going to try putting out mesh and sectioning off a small cove for fhm. But I think Iíll try it with 30-40 bucks worth vs $800. Figure 40 bucks is an acceptable loss if it fails miserably. Iím going to try sticking a few hundred in the small creeks that feed the pond too.
