I want to start a tread of pictures of cool stuff around the pond. I thought the subject would just get everyone's attention. We will see how this goes. I would like everyone to contribute to this if you so chose. Even if you have it on another thread somewhere. I would like to see everything from fish, ponds,docks,riprap, wildlife. Just about anything and everything your proud of. Or even if your proud of it maybe before and afters.

RS, that young lady knows how to hold a catfish! Lots of kids, boy or girl, are terrified or repulsed. Well done.

Thank you anthropic, the 2 older girls are hunters. The one holding the catfish took down a 10 pointer last year. It was in her older sister stand n oh boy she wasnt happy bout tht. You snooze you lose. The oldest is a welder and make bumpers. She started doing that at 16.

Extremely talented, there is a ton of fitting and position welding in a great looking bumper like that, thats something I know about. nice work, looks like fun fishing too!


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

Rusto,

Here is one of my favorite pond pics. For the last couple of years, whenever my wife was fishing, this guy would swim over and hop up on the bank so she could pick him up and pet him. We did not see him this summer so I guess old age or a predator got him. frown

I could use one of those awesome bumpers on my old Ranger whenever my youngest son is driving!

Looks like a good place to sit back with a thermos of coffee. Very peace looking.

Probably so, had to take up his slack

All kidding aside that is cool that a bullfrog would allow that. Tell her well done!

I'm no frog expert. So that is a bullfrog? Definitely big enough. I wasn't sure with that white chest and underbelly. We have lots of different frogs. I thought it might be a Northern Green or....
