AP, with the flooding that I heard about on TV today, the ice might melt from all of the rain.


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.

CJ, I'm very happy with the results to date. Next step is to get them back on pellets. Surface water temperature was 48 degrees but I hope to see more activity in a few weeks.

AP, We had a good winter down our way. First time in awhile we were slicing ice with the skates before Christmas. At one point, we had 10" of ice to auger through. On the other hand, maple season was a big disappointment.

Eric, to be quite honest, I did not notice any drastic changes in the fish. Its as if they pulled a Rip Van Winkle on me for the past few months.

Dave, we're getting moderate rain here in the southern adirondacks, but I checked the personal weather stations up by the pond and they've only gotten .10" of precip., eastern mass. is getting the worst flooding in their history.

Russ my neighbor owns a sugar bush about 20 miles from here and he only made half of the maple syrup he normally makes.

We didn't get much snow down here in Feb. & March and the rain and warm spells in march didn't allow the cold nights needed for good sap production.

Knocking the dust off of this old thread to add a major milestone.
Yesterday afternoon, I landed a 10.5" 452 gram bluegill that looked to be in very fine condition. Even though it's a bit shy of my 1 lb goal, its an accomplishment all PondBoss members can be proud of.

THANKS for getting me there folks !!

Good to hear from you Russ and the pond. Did you get a pic? In the past Russ has had some beautifully conditioned fish (YP and BG).
