Got a few hours to fish yesterday. Was perfect weather (high 70s, slightly overcast, close to sundown) had a nibble or two, so did my brother in law, but nothing on the hook.

Lots of swirls and splashes, and those weird breaths that plecos make when they come up for air.

Hard to cull when you can't hook em.

the shiner pond isn't covered in dead fish, so fingers crossed that is going well.

Hit the reorder button for craws and minnows, I've decided those will go in a different section that is similarly isolated but will fill in to the main pond in the next month or two


Im going to ask a lot of questions, but only because I'm clueless

The new craws and minnows showed up already! They went into the pond last night.

Hopefully this pans out, but if not I am not out too much.

Bluegill are the next things i want to add to a forage pond, and get my old feeders set back up

So Hurricane Ian came through and....

Pond is full
New bait ponds are overflowing into it a month or 2 earlier than expected.

Never seen it this full actually, like to the TOP.

Bunch of pictures on instagram polkpasturedpork.



Any of the smart people have an idea how the fish population will react to a pond that just gained 4' of water

I was wondering about how you fared with Ian. Glad to hear you survived! Did you have much storm damage? The critters all OK?

Ive got a bunch of photos and stuff on my IG. polkpasturedpork

We got stupidly lucky to be honest.
No animals lost, just needed to re capture the pigs. Chickens were fine.

Crazy amounts of water, having all my neighbors watershed coming into my property is what filled my pond up 4', plus the river overflow.

It could have been worse. Originally we were supposed ot have the southern bands and not much else, then a direct hit, eventually we only got the NORTHERN bands of rain and wind with no thunder.

MASSIVE trees down everywhere. Its shocking how many HUGE trees in the are afell towards the road and not onto houses.

At one point in the storm I ran up on my neighbors roof to help them remove enough of a small fallen tree to throw a tarp I gave them on it to cover some small holes.

All the biggest trees in my area fell on poles/wires.

I lived on a 3 block area that had power the whole time, rest of the entire city was out for at least half a day.
Internet was out for 2 days.

WHEW, that's good to hear. Glad that everything is relatively OK. Good luck on recapturing the hogs. They might just add to the wild pig gene pool.

wild pigs breaking in to get my gilts is more of an issue than mine straying
