the pond already holds roughly 30 to 40 channel cats averaging around 2 ft. each, God knows how many Largies from dinks to 15", and a few gills, the ice gets roughly 1.5 ft thick. Was just curious as I would like to establish a Smallie population but wouldn't want to waste healthy fish
Water is crystal clean. This is a 1 acre sized pond that was dug at my parents cabin in the UP about 8 or 9 years back with a natural spring feeding it water. My dad's original plans were to get it about 15' deep but within 6 ft. there was limestone. Few miles down from there, someone was getting a water well done and they had some company drill 33 ft. of limestone and still didn't get through. The limestone pretty much broke my dad's dream but we're trying to make the best of it. Thanks for the replies.
