They took the rain out of the forcast this week. First day of rain is supposed to be Saturday. Temps in the high 60's, maybe 70. Not typical November weather.

I fed my fish in the ponds today hydrated feed. A lot of small ones were high up in the water column.


If pigs could fly bacon would be harder to come by and there would be a lot of damaged trees.

Great photos Cecil. How long will the fish be in quarantine and what are they quarantined for?

Sorry bbjr didn't mean to ignore you. I forgot about your post. blush


Yes the net and mudline used was $50.00. I gave the seller more for shipping as it came from Minnesota. It's had about 300 pulls and had a few holes here and there to be repaired, but compared to over 2 grand for a new one of this length I was more than happy to buy it. I think if I take care of it I should be able to get a few more years out of it believe it or not.

I got the net by asking on an aquaculture list serve NCRAC if anyone had a used net for sale. John of Minnesota emailed me and said yes and I snapped it up. I didn't get any other responses.


Thanks, Cecil, I figured that was the only one. I don't even need one, but I figured at that price I would find a use for it grin .

You know more than I do. The VHS testing was done and negative but I wasn't aware there was a 45 day waiting period. Is this something BPS does?

Cecil, did they give you a tour behind the scenes?

They were going to give me a retail store tour but I had my mind made up I was heading home that morning.

Interestingly I found out many of these perch eventually get eaten by musky and pike in their northern stores even though they try and "target train" their large predators. Target training is where they train their large predators to take feed from the end of a tool used to grasp snakes which give the smaller fish in the tank a break.

You may be right, I just don't know.

I've got a $620.00 bill for testing a 60 fish lot of yellow perch and a 60 fish lot of bluegills. It would be at least another $400.00 if there was a vet in our state interested in learning to take the samples. At this point since there isn't, there is no fee for taking the samples as a state vet does it.

It's just amazing how the government expects a business to make money with all the mandates they come up with. I love to take them to court if I had the money and time, as this VHS scare lacks any merit scientifically when it comes to fish farms. A total sham. A lot of scientists don't even buy into it.
