5 year old buck +
That pond is going to be fantastic! I had one pond the same size dug out a few years ago, but it's not nearly as nice. It's just a cow pond so stays muddy. I put 100 4-6 inch channel cat in it and caught some bluegill and threw them in too. The next year they were about 1-1.5 lbs and this year they are 2-3 pounds and maybe 3-4 lbs by the end of summer. The bluegills have bred and look like they are going crazy, so may have to stock some bass. Anyway, it's just a blast trying new things and seeing how they work out. I have one more pond that needs cleaned out soon and I hope to expand it a bit and set it up more like yours. It'll definitely get fenced so the cattle can't get to it though. Thanks for the inspiration!
