Pond Study


Pond Study

Matt (see picture) from Jones Fish & Lake Management was at the club Wed. afternoon for our pond survey which lasted 2 hrs. Matt had done satellite work on our pond before getting there and he, Tony & I did a complete walk around to see everything visible and study the water, rocks and trees in and around the pond. We mentioned our stockings over the last 7 yrs. and the structure we added 6 yrs ago and what structure we're planning on putting in the Spring of 2014. I'll also give him our fish recordings over the last few yrs along with the actual kept & released data supplied by our membership. He'll take all that data and come up with recommendations to make our fishery better. He'll review our limits and length requirements and make suggestions there if need be. He believes we've done a fine job on stocking and structure that we done previously and thinks our water is in great shape especially with the wind that keeps our pond regenerating oxygen. He thinks most of his suggestions will be relatively easy through stocking and adding more structure without needing any type of aeration the way our pond is situated. As soon as those suggestions come in we'll contact the board and the pond & grounds committee to figure out a plan for 2014. This morning (10/24/13) I compiled a complete listing of all structure & stockings we've done since 2006 and gave him our fish recordings and did a full count of fish released vs kept according to our membership records for 2011 - 2013. Once we received Matt's recommendations we'll get those out to all board & pond & ground committee Members and have a meeting to discuss his suggestions and draw up a possible plan for 2014.
