Fish Feeding 13 Replies

I have a 5 acre pond with bass,bluegill, crappie, and catfish. I was thinking about getting a protein based food called Aquafeed to feed the fish in order to keep them fat and healthy. Is this a good…Continue

I have heard of some people having luck controlling them by stringing monofilament a few inches off the ground, all the way around the pond at the water's edge.  You can also get a nuisance permit from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to kill them, which would be my recommendation:

If you can figure out how to rid yourself of your friend let all of us know all of us with ponds it is an on going problem. The Huron doesn't care if you fish cost $1 or $2 or $3 dollars it's there for the easy pickins and you dare not harm one.

I would like to have a minnow pond as well, we have one that is real shallow and I may try to do that, the only problem is it is full of muck and would be hard to get the minnows out.  This year would have been a good one to have fixed it since it is so low now, just do not have the money yet.  Maybe in a year or so.

 

Are you sure you want your Catfish to breed, I have read they can cause some issues, but if you have a ton of LMB they may eat most of them.  Keep us posted on how the PVC's work out for you and once you have some spawn take some pics of the new fish.

My small pond, that is used to raise my minnows, dried up and my larger pond is down to about half what it was.  Need water badly so looking for rain, please......  Feeding twice a day so have  lost any fish so far,  none floating anyways.  Those really beg cats are sure coming up to feed though.  Have cleared some trash out with water low and dug out parts of pond.  Also cut some 10 inch pvc for cats to breed.  Still need to replace one leg on the pier and should be all done.  Hate the drought but sure got some things done I needed to do to both ponds.

Sharon, I'd like to see a picture of that table too! I know: you catch a fish, cook a fish, and it ends up on the table. It's all related! :-)

I love rustic stuff.

Comment by 10.5" RES Sharon on September 28, 2012 at 9:03am

Yes indeed, I am. We also have a coffee table made out of the top of a cedar tree we had to cut down by the pond. It had branches at the top pointing out on all sides of the truck like an unside down umbrella ribs. So, we turned it upside down for the table legs and put a table top on it. It's very unusual. I would send a picture, but sense there is nothing fishy about it, I didn't

Sharon you are a very frugal gal I would have never thought of it for a walking stick I would have burnt it and then there would be no way of using it to it's full potential.

Comment by 10.5" RES Sharon on September 28, 2012 at 8:47am

I have a pic of the RES, but the others were unimpressive. Yes, Dick, my pond is rich is branches. I put the fish back, but the branch I kept for a walking stick.
