nice catch, around here we use a pole to catch them though. Sort of drastic draining the pond then dipping them out! LOL

3-4 foot of clay and 10 ton of this http://www.jpself.com/bentonite.htm


I hope that it's cheaper than dirt (literally, and no pun intended) with a minimum of 45,000 Lbs.! Nice haul on the catch though!

Nice catch!
Many people around this area have drained their lakes/ponds (drought helped) to clean them out and make repairs....One fellow that had 2 small ponds drained them, cleaned them up and made 1 really nice large lake....Well, it will be a lake someday!

Totally in agreement over here! Crappie are on the top of my list. I can't say that out loud in Minnesota where the walleye is king, but I should be safe here.
Hope your friend's pond fix goes well.

Well to give credit to Minnesota, I would be willing to throw Walleye fillets into the mix. They just were not mentioned in the first post.

Like shooting fish in a barrel.

Nice harvest, that will be some enjoyable eating later. Are you thinking about smoking any?

(and CAT, before you say something like "the scales plug up my pipe", I mean wood smoke for flavoring and preservation)
