I've come to realize that it is impossible to trap enough BG out of my pond to control the numbers.

Most of it is too deep to be able to drag a seine. The cedar trees, rock piles, and rip-rap further complicate attempting that.

I'm contemplating the purchase of an high-frequency invertor. Amazon has several offerings in the $400-$600 range that I
believe would be appropriately sized for my pond.

Do any of you guys have experience with small-medium sized fish shocker devices?


What got me thinking about this... daughter finished her under-grad work in May, and got a summer job with the MO Dept
of Conservation. Her crew is doing small stream fish surveys in the bootheel area of MO this summer. They use portable
shock packs to stun the fish so they can net them for species ID, weights and measures, etc. But her boss is stingy and
won't let her bring one home to help out poor old taxpayer Dad on the weekends. So I got to thinking (dangerous, I know)
that maybe I ought to just have one of my own to use whenever I want to use it.

Shawn Banks is your guy when it comes to manufacturing shocking equipment.


Excerpt from Robert Crais' "The Monkey's Raincoat:"
"She took another microscopic bite of her sandwich, then pushed it away. Maybe she absorbed nutrients from her surroundings."

Make some better traps. I trapped a little over a thousand BG out of mine with one trap. 6’X18” in a week last year. Build three of those and it won’t take long no matter how big your tank is.

Scalebuster - Do you have a picture of your 6' X18" trap or is the size 6" X18" ?

Would it be possible to identify & mess up BG bedding areas at least during spawning season?

I'm not sure how I'd go about that without also disrupting the RES spawn.

I would definitely like to see pics of Scalebuster's 6'x18" traps. Building traps is cheap and easy.
