Welcome to PB. You've arrived at just the right time (right before any fish went in). I like the timeline and would only offer this advice.

1. Don't overstock the LMB next year. (this because you want 8 lb bass in three years). I am curious as to how many were recommended for your 3/4 acre pond.

2.Take advantage of the pristine condition of your pond to add some variety with regard to invertebrates. Things like Hyallela Azteca, PK shrimp, & asellus aquaticus.

3. Take advantage of this time to carefully introduce the desired plants.

Hey start a thread on your pond, it would be great to watch your progress and attain that goal.
