Must be great "working from home"! You hiring? laugh We could work from your home a couple days, then mine, then 3 day weekends!

Yeah, it is really nice. No wasted time driving back and forth to the orifice. I get up, start work at 6:30, unless I have a late afternoon conference call I'm done at 3:00.

I'll check with the boss and see if there are any vacant positions. Asking for three day weekends might be pushing it though. lol

I have not thought of this. Hmm. I’m sure my original RES were good fish. They were not from NEMO. I got them from Rex (Rainman). He put in 150 in April of 2015.
I have trouble telling the smaller RES/hybrids from pure RES. We also look at the gape along with the red tab. If it’s got a larger mouth, it doesn’t get back in the water.


5 yr old pond, 1 ac, 15' deep.
RES, YP, GS, FHM (no longer), HBG (way too many), SMB, and HSB (rumored..)
I think that's about all I should put in my little pond.

Some of ours seem larger than others (mouth). I’ve just been thinking the larger ones were probably the hybrids. Hopefully I haven’t been removing the pure RES, and keeping the hybrids..

We catch quite a few, every day. From the original 150, we’ve had very good RES recruitment. Maybe they are all pure RES. crazy
