It's been a terrible spring so far

So up to today I have had to have unexpected surgery on my wrist which will prevent me from fishing until fall.  The good news here, I have health insurance.

Last week or so, we had all the rain and it turned a little creek (2" deep) into a 5' river.  This in turn flooded my house.   Good news, kids safe and I have minimal damage.  Mold is the only looming concern.

This river though, it filled my pond up.  Thats great since I had drained it and killed off the…

Plan for the pond

Thanks to many discussions with Walt through email and phone, I think the Male only approach is going to happen.

Few Bass out of my new pond

I'm trying to find out if Tilapia are legal in Maryland so I can get them to eat up some of the vegetation in the pond.  I will keep fishing and start taking some notes on the actual numbers to help me move forward.

Here's the best bass that was…

Finally moved into the new house

Moved into the new location (Western Maryland) last weekend.  I've had a chance to fish my 1/4 acre pond about 3 times so far.  I haven't been able to locate my tackle box yet, so all I've been fishing with are small meps spinners.

 

The bass are biting, but nothing larger than 14".  I've caught two healthy bluegills, but nothing to write home about.  I'll take pictures of the fish whenever the phone finally sends them to my email.

 

Problems with the pond appear…
