I'll give a free, one-year Pond Boss Subscription to someone who participates in this thread. If you have a subscription already, I will extend it one year.

Here's the rules:

In twenty words or less (ALL CAPS), name something you've observed at your pond, or somebody else's, that you think flies in the face of conventional wisdom.

One April 1, I will randomly draw a winner from all who participated.

I will start. Of course I'm not eligible to win.

YELLOW PERCH, PACKED IN A CAGE, WILL AGRESSIVELY FEED FROM THE SURFACE WHEN THE WATER IS 35 DEGREES FARENHEIT.

Now THAT's what I'm talking about! C'mon folks...what have you seen in a pond or lake, or while fishing, that was contrary to what "people say".

A POND THAT HAS LITTLE TO NO VEGETATION PRESENT CAN STILL PRODUCE TROPHY FISH. A BALANCED SCENARIO ISN'T ALWAYS NECESSARY.


"Forget pounds and ounces, I'm figuring displacement!"

If we accept that: MBG(+)FGSF(=)HBG(F1)
And we surmise that: BG(>)HBG(F1) while GSF(<)HBG(F1)
Would it hold true that: HBG(F1)(+)AM500(x)q.d.(=)1.5lbGRWT?
PB answer: It depends.

GREEN SUNFISH ARE THE MOST MAGNIFICENT FISH ON THE PLANET. NOT ONLY ARE THEY BEAUTIFUL, BUT THEY ARE ALSO FANTASTIC FIGHTERS.

I have exceeded your word count because I shall not have my freedom of speech restricted by oppressive dentists.

We have spoken.



PS:
Will the subscription include the highly coveted Pond Boss Swim Suit Edition?

CONSISTENTLY CATCHING FISH FROM A SMALL MANAGED POND CAN BE AS DIFFICULT OR SOMETIMES MORE DIFFICULT THAN A PUBLIC LAKE.

Big catfish are hard to remove once they have been hooked once. Just bow fish them at feed time.


If you ain't gonna fart, why eat the beans?
