Hi all, new member here from the Sunshine State.
I'm about to close on some property with 2 ponds on it; both about 0.75-acre.
It's family land that I grew up around. My grandfather stocked them, so I used to fish them quite often. Great memories.
They haven't been used or care for for quite a few years since my grandparents passed on, but I'm excited to give them some new life. Something I've wanted to do for a while and the opportunity presented itself.
Gonna start with water chemistry, fish survey, and plant ID with hopes of getting that figured out in time to get a stocking plan put together this spring before it warms up.

Tentative plan would be to have one CC and the other LMB/BG/RES with some warmouth, too.

Been lurking here off and on for years. Glad to have a reason to be a member.
Cheers, Sf

Welcome


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.

And kudos to fishing grandfathers of all times.
