Theres been a few big bass put in the pond. I believe this is the biggest one that's been raised in it. 15 inches long. Didnt get a weight on it. Girls wanted a picture with it.

The bridge looks great, Rusto!

How about an underwater light as part of the "landscaping"? I think you could probably see the glow from your deck.

If you let your wife pick the color, you might be able to tally some good "husband" points. (Personally, I can always use extra of those!)

So we have a contractor coming next month or so to give us a bid. We are looking at something along these lines. Not the best picture just seen this driving around. We have looked at everything from silos to gazebos. I think this will perfect on our 30' peninsula. Was thinking the outside to be somewhere in the 18' - 20' range. Let me hear in pro n cons. It lot ezer to change things before its built.

Rusto,

I believe you like your pond edges to be neat.

I would definitely make sure you have room to mow with your tractor between the water's edge and the gazebo.

If that size of gazebo fits in the space and is still large enough for your average family gathering, then I say "go for it"!

I left about 5 foot on each side. I'm thinking bout zero maintenance stuff for the end of the peninsula. Like as in killin all the grass and weed barrier. Then cover with rock.

Good plan.

Zero maintenance = more time at the grill with tongs in one hand and a beer in the other hand!

First snow of the year. I'm not a huge fan of the cold but it does look pretty.

Great pic, Rusto!

I notice your dog is NOT swimming in that pic.


P.S. Is that same view NEXT winter going to reveal a new gazebo?

Rusto,

Good thing you added the bridge.

Previously, it looked like your peninsula was giving the Google satellite the middle finger!

I am not a big fan of Google throwing around their near-monopoly power in many areas. However, I must give them credit where credit is due.

I use Google Earth all of the time. The satellite imagery with the ability to measure distances and areas is a very powerful tool for land managers. The historical imagery button is also very nice to observe land use changes over time.

I am pretty sure I live in a lower population density area than our Indiana Pond Bossers, but my latest imagery is dated 2019. I have no idea what algorithm they use to update their satellite images!

Make sure you wave at the satellite the next time it passes over while you are working!

So you're saying I need to further lower my already low opinion of Google!

Go for it, Rusto!

Did you decide you had room to put it down by the lake shore, or is it going to be more "lake view"?
