    Be careful with water plants in the new pond, because birds like ducks can transport them to the big pond, since they will be using both.

    Love the oak tree you've planted on the island. That will look magnificent in about 10 years.

    • Jack Taylor

      More like 25 to 50 years, oaks are slow growers!

    • Political Martian
      Political Martian 2 months ago +4

      A 10 year old oak tree has a height of 15 to 20 feet and a trunk diameter of 4 to 6 inches. However, the exact size can vary depending on the species, growing conditions, and location.

    • BaneRain
      BaneRain Month ago +2

      I would have gone with a willow. Oaks are so slow. Not to mention, you'll get a ton of acorns in your pond

  • Rob Sykes

    You should try planting wildflowers around the pond ! It could hopefully give bugs and a few smaller mammals shelter and in term more food for the predatory birds around the area

  • Charlie Boring
    Charlie Boring 2 months ago +23

    For your island, use a soil aerator to make holes in the soil and spread top soil over it. Then use the aerator again to drive soil into the clay.

  • Andrew Kuhn
    Andrew Kuhn 2 months ago +2

    You should plant some native long grasses and cat tails on the island. It will make a good nesting habitat for the birds and you'll get a ton of amphibians which the bass love to eat.

  • Ivan Corona
    Ivan Corona 2 months ago +2

    Man I love this channel. I usually like to come back every month or two because I like to see how much is has changed and I’m always surprised. Btw why don’t you let the island grow wild grasses? It would be cool for the island to be covered in wild grasses and flowers. It could potentially become a habitat for birds and reptiles

  • Sven
    Sven 2 months ago +1

    I know the pond is still in its early stages, but I wanna ask if you plan on letting wild flowers and taller grass grow around it to stimulate insect populations?

  • Betsy B

    I love this series- I've been watching it since you started the pond. Love every episode. Don't know where your name the bass list lives, but suggestions, if you have any spots left: O for Ophelia, P for Penelope, T for Tatiana, R for Rhonda. The line of oaks is an amazing addition, btw.

  • Jyrex

    don't use corrugated pipe for drainage, it clogs up with debris. you need to add plants to the shrimp pond, not just Lilly pads.

    • Mey !
      Mey ! Month ago +1

      I also think he should add aquatic plants, it will be a hiding place for mosquito larva that will be food for fish and fish. Plus shrimp like grazing on plants and their babies hide there

    Great video! You always do a great job of giving full updates for your fans. I have been a subscriber since before Bonnie and Clyde.

    Maybe you should build a chicken-wire enclosure over the little pond so all the bait aren't taken by birds. You can build hatches for access, like an enclosed garden.

  • James Valentine

    I've been following your pond for a while now, love to see the progress. From the beginning I've thought it might work great to have a couple Bald Cypress trees planted near the bank. Here in Texas they grow along rivers, ponds, and swamps. But I know it's similar in other parts of the south as well. They love water and it seems like near the banks of your pond would be potentially good spots. They're very attractive trees, iconic of the south as are our Southern LIve oaks. Let me know if you decide to try a few Bald Cypresses, I bet they can work great even if they aren't native in your specific part of Alabama.

  • Red Eye Stones
    Red Eye Stones 2 months ago +3

    Another great video. I'm super curious, (and I'm sure I'm not the only one) to see how aggressive those little one pound tigers really are. Maybe in your next video, you could throw some big baits, and some top water action.

  • Frnch Baguette
    Frnch Baguette 2 months ago

    You were the first channel I have subscribed to. Your videos are very comforting and interesting. I think you should name a bass "Quincy." Thank you for making this series and documenting the whole process.

    Since I've seen your pond build part 1 I knew its gonna be entertainment for months to come. I've been watching since the first day and I love how its not only about the pond but also about its surroundings and animals!
    Little late for the naming competition, but I hope I could still jump on that train.
    For the name I was thinking Basseus.

  • Rocky Pipe Dreamer
    Rocky Pipe Dreamer 2 months ago +3

    A little late but - when you take the stump out - think about drilling some 3 inch holes for the shrimp to have an apartment. If you work it right you can make it so they can pick different temp levels

  • Benny n Bubba D
    Benny n Bubba D 2 months ago +1

    You should call the giant shrimp 'Stretch Armstrong'. And I'd love to call one of the aggressive bass 'Gracie ' after my brand new puppy. Thanks Steven n Liz, love watching the pond coming along every Sunday. Benny.

  • Balluf VonDepths

    I think "ATLAS" would be a great name for a bass. I always remember as a kid seeing a musclebound picture of the great Atlas holding the world on his strong shoulders. Thank you for another great video! I can't believe how fast the fish are growing, and they always look so healthy!

    Wow a second pond! Looking forward to seeing the critters enjoying it. Thought on your "Alcatraz Island" grass. What about planting Clover? It does really well in clay soils. It flowers and feeds the bees. Win Win Eastern Bluebirds are in your duck house. They are in need of housing, so they will nest in what is available.

    I think it’s cool seeing how much work it took to build the pond and it blows my mind because I know a guy that built a lake on 92 acres and the deepest parts are 30 feet which is amazing it’s up in Wisconsin it’s stocked with perch and walleye he made custom structures for nest by stacking pallets making cubes and put them all along the bank of the one island and other banks around the lake it also had a gravel beach

    Love your videos! That is crazy that you caught the same bass twice in the same span of 5 minutes! I saw on the spreadsheet that a few A spots were still blank and I was wondering if you could use my name idea. It is: Alcatraz, like your island in the pond. Keep up the good work!

    While you are at it, add an overflow drain that wyes into the new drain you are running for the runoff. This way shrimp pond can't accidentally overflow into main pond for any reason.

    You can use alot more bio for you canister such as crushed lava rock or even put it in a mesh bag to keep it together sponges also help with mechanical and biological filtration aswell. For even finer particles to get that sparkle in the water use some synthetic pillow fluff just swap it out each month or if not sooner

Love your videoes, started watching right before the 5 acre pond was started, i watched all of the backyard pond videos back to back and then wait (not so patiently) for updates now lol. Its been awsome to see the pond develope and it feels like we've watched sara grow right with the fish! Cant wait to see what yous do next.

    Loved the video! One suggestion: The bio-balls that come in the filter are useless. You'd be better off throwing them in the recycle bin and replacing them with Biohome Ultimate, or some other ceramic media.

    I'm curious if there's any concern over the oak tree punching through the clay blanket at all?

    I’d like the name “Big Gus” for the male prawn, seems fitting for that massive set of claws he’s packing.

    Literally would love to visit here, and spend some days fishing. You have a anglers and nature lovers paradise.

    It would be cool to see Bonnie, Clyde, and moby get fed some bigger bait fish every once in a while or a frog or something just to switch up their diet a bit like giving them candy for fish 😂 love the pond build vids as well

    I had no idea Bonnie was still bigger than Moby! The 300G tank is so deceiving because he looks way bigger in the videos than she does. Cant wait to see Bonnie and Clyde moved to their new home.
    Still trying to get a name on one of the 5 acre pond bass hahah. Would love to see one named "Panzer" because it'll be a tank in no time! Also thought "Uncle Ben" would be a good one for U and Iris for I. Fingers crossed one of these names hits!

    Those are Eastern Bluebirds. I had a pair nest in my whistling duck box almost a decade ago 😄

    P-Phineas for a fish name.
    I sure have enjoyed watching your progress on the pond. It’s very informative.
