I’m so pleased with my purchase of the Deep Glow green underwear fish light. It’s great for asthestics and allowed me to confirm the threadfin population/reproduction. Fish should get more comfortable around it the longer it is permanently mounted with the vertical bracket 4’ down running on a dusk to dawn timer. Can’t go wrong with this choice.

We also built a firewood storage from pallets and tin for the roof.

I’m not sure about solar. Ours is hardwired. Here’s the website.

I caught the first Brook Trout the other day from the 50 that were stocked last Fall. It’s pretty amazing the difference in the amount of gain between them and the RBT. According to the hatchery both were started at the same time. The BT was about 6” when stocked and the RBT were 10-12”. Now the BT are 12” and the RBT are well over 3lbs with some pressing 5lbs. Both were fed the same amount at the hatchery yet from increased growth I will only be stocking RBT each fall. The BT have a max temp of 65 degrees and the RBT at 70 degrees. Both are feeding voraciously and still seem to be doing great. Like I mentioned before this is a test to see how long they will last in the big spring filled pond. By August/September I should know whether they could be a year round fish. Not getting my hopes too high just yet.

I thought, probably mistakenly, that RBT are more heat tolerant than BT. But my experience is similar to yours, in that RBT take to feed aggressively & grow very fast. Hope they last the summer for you!

RBT are still feeding but not nearly as well as a month ago. Set the TH feeder back to 5 seconds in the am and pm. I’m still waiting on the septic for the pavilion to arrive, supply chain issues as with many things these days. We also built a 12x16 shed by the cabin with an attached 20x16 lean to in progress. Just need the metal roof to finish it. I took a night picture by the pond a couple of weeks ago. Heading back with the family for the fourth. Life is good!

Thanks Snipe! Now just trying to figure out a plan to control excess underwater weed growth. Headed back down tomorrow evening to try and get pics for identification.
