Last year I had just the one koi. The FA got outta hand. This year I'm getting some tilapia from snipe. Not sure one date yet. This year I know I need 2 get some line in the water and get some bass n crappie out. Hoping to have a few weekends where friends come take all they catch. Or just a good ol fashion fish fry. Not much on eating fish but always down 4 a good time.

Bill you mentioned aeration. We dont have anything as of now in their. We do get some wind action for sure.

These will be the post for the bridge and dock. Planning a bridge that's about 30 feet long. The dock I'm not sure about yet. Kinds depends on how far the excavator can reach. I really dont know how big of equipment he has. The plan is a permanent dock going straight out maybe 12 feet or so. Then building floating dock with some kind of hinge system. Just getting the post set and some of the pond dug deeper is my plan for tomorrow. I want a swimming hole right off the bridge. Also want a few spots made deeper. Wish me luck iv never did anything like this before

Any last minute thoughts. Heres a drawing I made. Not saying it will end up like this but hopefully close. Please dont judge my place off my kindergarten drawing. The outdoor structure hasnt been built yet. That's supposed to be octagon shape without the front post. With dormers off sides. Hopefully it turns out better than the chicken scratches I drew.

You got this, that will be sharp, keep us posted with some after picks. I love the design.


All the really good ideas I've ever had came to me while I was milking a cow.

Thank you - Wife took this picture. I got my swimming suit on and hopped in. I held them straight and pushed them down into the bottom with the bucket. Set them in around 3 - 4 feet down.

Design changed a bit at last minute. I moved the dock to straight off the peninsula.

A "labor of love" with extra HP and extra reach from the excavator is definitely the way to go Rusto!

Looks great so far.

You may also need to employ your videographer daughter to post some good video to Pond Boss!
