I have a very cool opportunity presenting itself. I've been contacted by the owner of a 40 acre pond who needs stunted bass removed immediately. And I happen to have a friend who owns a 3 acre pond that he can't catch fish in. So one of these weekends I'm going to organize a fishing party and see about catching as many fish as possible and moving them about an hour away to this smaller pond. Completely unrelated to my pond, but a cool opportunity to get my hands wet in the business either way.

at 40 acres, does that still qualify as a pond? And will they have anything to eat in the 3 acre pond? Hopefully it won't upset the balance too greatly to add a number of new fish.

Too bad I don't have a cast net and live closer. Find a way to bring them hungry bass up and catch them like ballyhoo.

Yeah, I'd consider a 40 acre body of water a lake myself, but he referred to it as a pond, so I guess I will too. Honestly, I haven't visited either of these ponds, but I'm being told from my friend that the forage is there. He thinks there's too much, but I reassured him, when it comes to bass, there is no such thing. The thing that does concern me, regarding the balance, would be the possible absence of bluegill. You basically need bluegill to keep the balance and if he's got as much forage (minnows) as he says, he may not have enough bluegill to sustain a quality bass fishery. We'll have to look into that. The bass we will be misplacing are only 1"-2.5" so they could possibly stock larger bluegill and be ok. They should spawn regardless.

I've never used a siene net or any other trapping method. Would love to electrofish, actually, but don't have that equipment, obviously. So we'll do it old school. I'm sure I can find plenty of volunteers. Knapp? :-D

East Nebraska. Yep. I'm currently trying to figure out how to transport them. I can get my hands on a 55 gallon plastic drum, no problem, but I have to oxygenate it obviously. If I thought this would be a regular deal for me I wouldn't mind dropping $300+ on a system, but if it's a one time deal I don't want to go all out.

Yeah yeah yeah... I wish. :-b ;-)

I've been sawing down tree limbs with one of those long poles with a saw blade on it, then sawing them up to fit in a trash bin. The activity makes me type about a thousand miles an hour. Unfortunately, it also makes me miss every other letter. :-/

I've been painting the inside of the new house pretty much non stop for the last 5 days....painting ain't no joke. I haven't done any serious labor since I laid my last block nearly 3 years ago so I'm pretty worn out from it.

My niece and nephew (10 and 12 years old) are coming by the house tomorrow with my sis :-) I picked up a couple of classic zebco combos for them, as well as a couple dozen worms, nightcrawlers, and 'bee moths.' I didn't ask for the later, she simply grabbed them and when I asked she said she'd thought I asked for them. Whatever, panfish supposedly love them. So I'll be doin some fishin' with the kids manana. Also grilling, of course. I'll see if we can snap a couple pics of the action. ;-D
