Dave, my pond is around 6-7 acres. I'm most likely going to start w/ only (10) grass carp. I know that sounds low.

I don't want total elimination of the weeds.

From there, I'll gauge progress and adjust as necessary.

Thanks for the input.

Tim K. ,
What kind of vegetation do you have in your ponds that the carp eat? Was it eurasian milfoil?
Dave Davidson, what kind of weeds were in your neighbor's one acre pond?
I have a milfoil problem I'm going to address with grass carp . Can't afford chemicals, and raking it out is not practical.
When is the best time of year to stock 11-13" grass carp? Would it hurt to stock them in the fall in North Central Texas?
Thanks in advance.

We were dealing with American pondweed and some millfoil.

BTW, I just bought that 71 acre place. It is contigous to my original place. Now I have to get my butt over there and spray some small willows and catch a bunch of 10 inch bass. We stocked the grass carp in the summer. They have really clobbered the vegetation. I caught one of them on a small hook with a piece of night crawler the other day. I guess they are getting hungry. I was bluegill fishing and got a heckuva fight on my ultralight. It was about 18 inches long and had doubled it's size in a year. They definitely work.
