UPDATES: August 31, 2012 – A large snapping turtle has taken up residence in our pond. Should we leave it or remove it? http://youtu.be/TO1l6XWI7N0 July 4, 2012 – Feeding Fish in our Pond (second half of this short video): http://youtu.be/tMkz0pzjtwE June 16, 2012 – Catching Small Fish in a Small Pond: http://youtu.be/j8crwrigb8Q May 1, 2012 – Year 2 – Releasing fish into our pond at Hidden Hollows: http://youtu.be/mgrxJ6r-S0w DESCRIPTION: Randy and Diane Wingett released 10 largemouth bass, 25 bluegill and 2 pounds of minnows purchased from Mid-Atlantic Stocking into a new pond at their Hidden Hollows property near Romney, West [More]
UPDATE: Year 2 fish are getting bigger! http://youtu.be/tMkz0pzjtwE The catfish and bass have survived so far, despite visits by a very large snapping turtle, river otter, blue heron and green heron. For recent proof, check this 4th of July video “4th of July Lightning Storm at Hidden Hollows – Feeding Fish in our Pond” at times 1:40 and at 2:10 to see catfish surfacing for food pellets. The following weekend, I caught one of the catfish, which was at least double the size since release. On August 18, I caught three small bluegill and a hand-length bass. – rw ORIGINAL [More]
