Thank you I'm looking forward to some grass and and full pool this spring. I think I started this 2 years ago. It's been a long process for sure. My wife has been pretty supportive of it which has helped.

Thank you, I'm ready for spring time when everything greens up and fills up. I'm thinking bout making something like this. Just a small fishing dock. My father in law is not quite in a wheel chair but is close to it but loves to fish. Hes the reason I put crappy in my pond. He loves to catch them. I figured a couple of these around the pond will be helpful to him. Also dont want to spend a whole lot either.

I have pondered about putting a small dock on the opposite side of my 3 acre main pond and also one across the creek on my RES/SMB pond.

Pondering is the easy part. We will see if I ever get "a round tuit". grin

I think you would enjoy the docks a lot. Don't remember ever hearing of anyone here on PBF regretting putting in a dock. They might when it comes time to replace the boards, but I do not see any other downside.

I have a 5 year old round tuit problem about a blue barrel dock. And, Iíll bet this isnít the year either.


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.

This morning rains have brought it up more. Looks like so far we've got .89. But everything around is already wet so I got pretty good runoff. My wife isnt thrilled that I enjoy the rain right now. Lol

Your penensula is showing up. I like it.

When looking at bare dirt from pictures, hard to get the features sometimes.

Thank you I'm loving it all filling up. I'm hoping google maps updates some time this summer when everything is looking nice n green.i changed the shape alot over the last few years. Its finally filling up which makes it easy to tell where my lows spots on the damn are. Hopefully I can get on it before spring. I would sink in mud at this time.

It looks if you are going to copy that design exactly, you just need a "ring" of the grain bin.

My farmer buddy has 4 of them 2 are only like 2-4 foot tall sidewalls. That's what im going to try and buy from him. He is a snowbird and gone til march so havnt been able to talk with him yet. Not sure if im going with exactly the same design. Just wanting something similar. Maybe a ring around the bottom also with cut outs.

The pond is as full as it can get for now. I still need to add a couple feet on the back side (damn side). It has been a wet winter so far. I have mud everywhere from all the digging iv done. Looking forward to this summer and seeing it when it looks nice.

I possibly made the damn alil to small lol. My goal was to get the pond as close to my fence line as possible. I talked to my neighbor and he said for all he cared the pond could go over to his side if I wanted. I figured that could cause problems down the road so didnt go that far. But it does look like I need to add some more dirt on the backside. I still have more sloping i need to do around but it's coming along nice i think.

I have this small section of my pond that I was thinking of building a bridge over. Has any of you built one before. I would love you get some ideas from others. Also thinking that underneath it I can cage off for the use of growing HSB until large enough to not be snacks. Also thinking i could maybe raise forage in there also like minnows or others. Any ideas or suggestions ? Sorry my drawing really sucks just did it on my phone.

Yes moisture isnt a problem right now. I got the peninsula all seeded with rye and fescue. Rye is coming up already.

I like to use Dutch clover when I'm trying to establish new sod on bare dirt. It sprouts readily, forms a dense rhizome mat, and adds nitrogen to the soil.
Over time the grasses, especially fescue, will choke out the clover leaving you with a nice stand of grass.

I used rye. It comes up in 7-9 days. Its about 6 inches tall already. I'v never heard of dutch clover. The rye dies out after the 1st year. Its cheap less than a dollar a pound. I might try and look for the clover also thanks for the tip.
