Did the pond dye do it ?

Back in 2012 I had a 5/8 acre pond dug. About one forth of it is ten feet deep, the rest tapers off to nothing. After a couple years the algae started growing. Last year I used a leaf rake and went around the entire pond, a week later you couldn't tell it. This year I had three feet of algae around the edge and islands of it here and there in the middle. I decided to start a pond dye treatment. I did it two weeks ago with plans to do it eight weeks later and start again in the next spring. A…

Catching fish with physics and geometry

So, a fish story, My brother Larry is over from North Carolina for our annual fishing trip and we decide to run over to Kentucky Lake the first day. So, we start looking for Crappie and that's pretty slow so we begin to look for some bluegill. He is throwing a 1/32 oz jig and we are catching a few. I decide to throw a pink bluegill slider on a 1/16 oz roadrunner head. We are both picking up one here and one there when I make a cast next to a stickup and get a nice thump. I set the hook and…

Tips for fishing

I need some help on fishing for Bluegills here in Minnesota.  I used to fish alot as a kid but never really paid attention to what we were doing (dad always knew where to go and what to use).  I'm mainly looking for help on depths the where they might be during the season.  Right now where would they be found.  How much would change in June, July and fall.  I have  kids who want to catch fish but usually end up seeing a frustrated dad instead, I'm afraid they will lose interest.  I grew up…

Ice Fishing and Me...

Due to an automobile accident I do not currently do much outside in the cold as it is somewhat painful with pins in the ankle. This being said with the advance in winter fishing gear I am thinking of trying it maybe though a guided service. But who knows still watching our pennies.

2 lbs. Sufix Nanobraid Report

A few weeks ago, I posted the math related to calculating just how much line is needed to fill a reel spool (of  known dimensions) to a desired depth and in doing so, determined that it takes one heck of a lot of line if its diameter is .001". This is what Sufix claims for its 2 lbs. Nanobraid. If one converts the millimeter measurement Sufix also provides to inches, it is a bit closer to .002" as I recall. Still, it is incredibly small for a true braided line.

Anyway, I have fished…
