Next year, I hope to take a trackhoe around my biggest pond and eliminate some willows that have been growing along the banks, redo one bank so it can be mowed, dig out a few sediment ponds, fix the dam on one sediment pond that washed out, renovate another pond that I've left dry for a while, restock another pond or two with grass shrimp, and probably do something about a pond that only has green sunfish and smallmouth bass in it (although I don't know what to do with it).

What are your pond plans for next year?

That sounds like a pretty busy weekend!

Are you going to take the rest of the weekends off during 2023 to go fishing?



(Good luck on all of your projects.)

Assuming my main pond fills up again -- a big assumption -- I intend to pump water from it to my small forage pond rather than watch that precious liquid wasted going out the stand pipe.

Looking for some new steps for rain dancing. We have been in a fairly serious drought in my area.


It's not about the fish. It's about the pond. Take care of the pond and the fish will be fine. PB subscriber since before it was in color.

Probably drop a well to keep the pond here filled. Dig some production ponds.

Interesting to hear different parts of country. We've been fortunate here with regard to rain last three years. Probably best three years for crop production ever for this area - all consecutive and all right after family stopped farming and started cash renting out the land (of course!). Year before last, renter reportedly had some soybeans make around 100 bu per acre. Last year, renter had well over 200+ bushel corn average with several areas over 300 bushel per acre. This year, his corn averaged 200 and his beans averaged 75. Both were hurt a little where had too much water. If I hadn't seen it, I wouldn't have believed it. Our soil is ok; but not that rich black topsoil like some have up north. We've been fortunate to have the rain we've had.
