    Well I have been really trying to snap a pic a my catfish when they come up to feed, but never seem to get a good one. Every night around 7:30 I take a coffee can full of pond fish food out and feed these guys, but soon the tables will turn and they will be feeding me. The cats, only two left are most likely over 20 pounds, but there are smaller ones in the 2lb range. Plus there are a mess of bluegills and am getting alot more largemouth bass. I know there is yellow perch and crappie in there but are seldom seen. It's fun, when I get about 50 feet from the pond there are hundreds of little wakes all headed towards the dock waiting to be feed. But soon the seas will calm lol. here a couple pics.

    looks alot like my friend's pond.......they practice "catch and release"......catch them in the river.....release them in the pond....lol

    They got rid of a nasty bullhead infestation with a couple nice flatheads....quite a few crappie and bluegills wind up in there during ice fishing season too....[​IMG]

    As cowgirl said......"Nice Herd"......LOL

    L8r,

    Yeah , it aint a bad herd Jeanie. I figure I need to harvest at least 75 of them. And Ken, you are welcome to be my fishin buddy as long as you pass the jug every now and then. Daboys. you cant have too many with a waiten fry pan lol. And Eric, I like the catch and release program your bud practices. My bass are going to be a big problem with the smaller ones, so there next.
