Been there, done that as well!

100' poly rope with 3 zip ties woven through the rope to keep them from spinning.

This is before I attached the floats but I just used the pool noodles and it worked great.

After I corraled it (from shore and by boat), I then tossed out the "skimmer" you see in the photo (lower left) to bring it in.

These both worked great, except the pond is 2 acres and it was completely covered in DW.

Then I met Fluridone!

But for "pond tools", both were very effective, with all the credit going to the great folks here on PB!
