North Texas covers a lot of acreage. What town?


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.

I bought a kit and plan to check it and see what it looks like. Thanks for the tip for sure.

Howdy folks. I'm new to the forum. Thinking of putting a 1/3 acre pond in on my property in Northern Virginia. Need to clear the site of trees. It's in a natural drainage area with a seasonal/wet-weather stream bed flowing into it. Haven't reached out for any professional help yet....just in early stages of planning.

Is there a forum you recommend I join to get some planning tips?

Thanks!

Welcome to the club. I would start by drawing a picture of what the finished product is you want. Maybe drive around and see what you like with what you have to work with. What are your goals for it? Do you want it for swimming or fish or both? Mine then main reason is for looks. And we also love the wildlife that comes with it. Me and the kids was catching frogs tonight for example.

My name is Joe Van and I’m new to this forum, I have a 9 acre pre existing pond that was once full of trophy bass. The pond was built in 1991 the year I got out of college, I moved off in 1998 and no ones has really kept the pond up for the next 24 years. I recently moved back home and I am wanting to learn as much as I can about pond maintenance and growing more of those big bass! I can’t wait to hear from some of you and the things you do to grow big bass, thanks!

Welcome Joe. 2 things: Water quality and balance.

Big bass need forage/prey that is approx. 1/3 their size. It's a matter of energy expended vs calories obtained.

Hello Everyone! I am Peter. I am new to the forum. Fishing is my passion. I came across this site when searching for some information regarding the ponds. It's a great platform to share knowledge and experiences and to learn more from others.
