Looks great, Rusto!

I see your pond level is up a little bit. Did the heavy rains push some water flow through your emergency overflow? If so, did any of your fish get pushed out?

I thought I recalled you had some plans to improve the overflow a little. Did your improvements help for this big rain event?

Thank ya fellas. I havnt done anything on a spillway yet. Well besides grass seeding it. Iv got it level at two places on it. So when it does over flow it's coming out 2 spots so iis not so crazy. Not sure if I will put any kind of pipe in yet. It I ever end up with a problem it will just give me a reason 2 get back on the tractor lol.

Rusto I have 2 24” black corrugated plastic pipe for my overflow into the retention pond to catch escape’s, have never had an issue or problems not being enough….. but we drive over it on dam to get to town. We dug clay from retention area with the tractor ( Urnch) to cover and pack clay

I'm thinking I dont really need one. I had maybe 3 that I found (escapees). They were little tiny. I dont have a huge watershed incoming to the pond. Maybe 2 acres at most. With the pond now sitting around ¾ acre it prolly wont over flow as bad. Time will tell on this.

Wow theres noway I have that much water flow for 2 -24 pipes. I have seen a few spillways that I like. I believe its T-bar has a nice looking one.

Glad to here that you only had a few escapees!

I was thinking maybe you could put a few inches of decorative stone at the overflow points on your banks - if your escapes get worse. That way the flood water can flow through your stones but the fish would stay in your pond.

Of course, as soon as you have some good entertainment at the new gazebo, I am sure the fish will want to stay just to enjoy the shows! grin

Good job dialing up the family fun!

Did you just put some solar lights on the bridge? I assume they keep things illuminated right up until your kids are ready to call it a night.

I put them on maybe a couple months ago. With 12 of them down there it brightens up the place alot. Gunna put some more on the structure somewhere. Never heard of a night when the kids call it lol.

Looks about right for the expected growth from the ones you stocked last fall.

Maybe even a little small. Do you have some good forage in there for your HSB?

I really have no clue at this point. I feed them prolly 2 - 3 times a day. They go absolutely nuts.

I didn't realize you were hand feeding your fish.

That must be one of the small ones that was stocked.

I still can't wait to see the photo and the smile when one of your girls lands a 6# HSB a few years from now!
