Here's some fish I picked up from a supplier on Friday. The RES was a fingerling in October (I believe) and was raised indoors all winter, the YP is a shooter from the April 2022 hatch. I picked up just shy of 200 of the YP, a few hundred of the RES. Half of the YP will go to a customers pond, half will be brood stock for next year.

I need a measuring device like that, where I can fill in my own numbers. Can you imagine the size of fish I could measure with something like that? Id have 30" LMB in no time!


All the really good ideas I've ever had came to me while I was milking a cow.

This was my first thought too! Lake records just keep pouring in for some reason!

Great looking stockers Scott!

LOL. I had to do that because the board didn't start until the 7" mark that wasn't marked. Somewhere I DO have a "12 inch" ruler that is only 8" long though.....

Here's what it looked like when I purchased it.Hog Trough

When it had less miles (and fish) on it.

That was just an honest misunderstanding. The anglers asked if they could use outside help, and were told they had to sinker swim on their own.

And here I thought I was the person that posted the worst puns on Pond Boss.

I see you are angling for a State Record in that category!

Yep, he has a fish stretcher


It's not about the fish. It's about the pond. Take care of the pond and the fish will be fine. PB subscriber since before it was in color.

Hey, I already got the State Record threadfin shad (if anybody kept records on them). 11.5"! Sad to say, no record LMB or HSB, but I'm trying.
