My new personal and pond record BGxRES (an Fx generation fish) - 13 1/4", 2lbs 8 3/4oz, raised on Aquamax 600, and caught on a Berkley Power Egg:



Based on size and appearance, he may be the same fish as the previous weight record in our 1/2 acre pond that my daughter caught 22 months ago. If so, he has gained over a inch and a half pound in that time.

Good grief. Congrats.


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.

Well done - next time we need your [wh] oarhouse in the background! Hope it's seeing lots of action, buddy!

No good idea, really. Over 5 and under 10.
