Hey fellers, long time lurker just wanting to introduce myself. I own a 1/10 acre pond (hopefully dug to about 1 acre next year). When I bought the place it looked like chocolate milk and was full of mudcats and huge gizzard shad. Fast forward to last summer I shocked the pond with hydrated lime and as far as I could tell killed everything in it. I've also added about 1/2 ton ag lime. Ive bucked stocked about 25 bluegill, 7-8 red ear and 5 14 inch LMB from the neches river. Currently hand feeding optimal once a day if I can. Pond is doing great except for my first fa bloom and I recently spotted bg and lmb fry. Anyways thanks for all the information on here I've spent many 12 hour shifts reading through this forum.

Thanks, I'll take some today, it still needs a lot of work but I'm happy with the direction it's going. I do have a pretty bad fa bloom right now but I expected that since it was a stock tank till last summer and this is the first year the light has reached the bottom in probably 6 years.

Welcome to the show.


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.

Boy, if I say "sic em", you'd better look for something to bite. Sam Shelley Rancher and Farmer Muleshoe Texas 1892-1985 RIP
