I found this OSU paper on the web that answers a lot of the questions asked here. It also gave me the idea to look at some eggs under my microscope. I got the idea too late though because I had to work the entire weekend and now that I'm home it looks like the strands are gone. I know what day they were produced and I've been visiting them daily (till this weekend), checking the water temp, I think it was time.

We had a cold spell here too, when I arrived home from work 6 am Saturday morning the air temperature was 32.2F so I checked the pond temp and it was 54F. My water temperature stayed over fifty everyday since the beginning but I don't know if they were even fertile. It sounds like Fungus can be an devastating issue also. Time will tell.

Here's the article, not sure if it's been posted before.

Wanted to add that I haven't noticed any recruitment since I've had my YP but I have seen a couple of ribbons, one a year almost, lol. Well recently I was laying on my dock looking at a piece of aluminum siding I put in (per John Monroe) when I saw a small perch swim by! I must have had some recruitment because it was smaller than an original stocker. I did try setting minnow traps to sample but never did catch one that way. I used stale bread as bait and a chicken neck one time, maybe I wasn't at the correct depth or maybe they are had to catch that way.

Thanks for the link Loretta. Interesting stuff!


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

You are welcome. OSU has some basic aquaculture videos, I think they are good, here's a couple:
