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.
Maria CANCER this comment deserves to get more likes for and subs ❤feel better fight the cancer
Love the oak tree you've planted on the island. That will look magnificent in about 10 years.
More like 25 to 50 years, oaks are slow growers!
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.
I would have gone with a willow. Oaks are so slow. Not to mention, you'll get a ton of acorns in your pond
crazy to realize that the years i’ve been watching had flown by this fast. been here since just before you built the backyard pond
I was here since moby was caught and I can’t believe it either
@Jaboi3jidion I’ve been here since Bonnie and Clyde were little and in a tank together and sheriff of course also I was here for moby to
@Jaboi3jidion I really said sheriff I meant outlaw
@Zach Cook that was long ago
I watched his Crawfish Boil video a couple years ago. Now I stumbled over this channel again, just to find the baby I remembered, grown up into a school kid. Time is unbelievable...
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
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.
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.
Crazy how these videos make me feel like I’m apart of the whole process as if it was my pond haha! Also how time flies! I was thinking about how your backyard pond was so many years ago!
True we what proff . Thar some 9f us made it there.
for real ❤ i like the outdoors so thas why i try to be here watching 🙏🏽🙏🏽
@nick mcgookin what are you talking about?
I have the same thing 😂
Ain’t no better way to start the week than with a bamabass video!
I cant believe how long it has been since the first video on the pond build. I have watched every single one and I love them all. I think this is because you are living my dream, keep up the good work!
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
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?
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.
Love the fact that you went from engineer to apprentice biologist. The way to keep these amazing creatures alive and healthy is a mix of both. :)
out of the four hundred fifty freshwater species of shrimp 🦐he chooses the one with arms long enough to stab his fish's 👁eye out. 🤨
@Purple DracWhy do you have to put an emoji every few words?
@Cen well that's a useless question
@Timothy B Well, that's a useless response considering I never asked you.
@Cen I just got roasted
Cannot wait to see these prawns grow! I LOVE THIS SERIES!
I think the only name a prawn like that can have is bubba!
Side question: how do you finance all these awesome projects?
I am new to this series and have enjoyed catching up and am looking forward to new videos! I think a great name for the big male prawn would be Popeye.
It's really good to see you're hard work is turning into fun!
love the videos I love the fact that I feel less stress just watching your channel thank you
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.
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
@Mey ! mosquito larvae only live jn stagnant water.
@Let's Go Brandon! FJB! It's a pond
@Mey ! that will have a filtration system like his backyard pond.
I love your name
I love your videos, been following the progress since the start! Cant wait for the next pond build.
Queen or xeno would been good names!
The fact that you caught the same fish twice is crazy! Love to see the progress as always, keep the videos coming!
Wooow! I haven’t come across you guys in a whole year and a half almost two and so much have changed! Great to see u guys again!
Love watching your channel, you've given us amazing advise and ideas for our own pond build! If you're still looking for a W name how about Wrangler!
it's cool to see the amazing development of the Crimson oak pond, been here since day 1. hope you can name one of the bass "Hari" it means King here in my country. wish you more power and more videos in the future.
Always have a rush of positive emotions when I see your video notifications. Love this channel. He looks like he's a Larry, Larry the Shrimpster (prawn name) Ronnie seems like a good bass name too
He had a Larry who was a big crawfish that lived with Bonnie and cylde
I still think its a crime that one of the Bass is named "Maverick" yet nobody else is named "Iceman" and "Goose". And you can trust me cuz my name is part bass!!
Seriously!! I saw this notification I was like ooo I’m sleeping to this tonight!
WOW!!! I would never believed that you could catch the same bass in five minutes. I love your pond and only wished that I had one that I could enjoy every day. Enjoy your updates, keep them coming.....
One of the best series on Clip-Share by far, been watching since day 4 of filling the pond up. Would love it if you could name a bass Behemoth
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. Remember thinking “damn great names, I should have thought of that.” Your grandkids are going to watch your videos one day and be proud of the humble and kind man you are.
Love your content BamaBass. Been watching for years. Cant wait to see Bonnie, Clyde and Moby get added to Crimson Pond!!
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.
I always look forward to seeing the pond and how the wildlife and fish are doing.
Thanks for sharing apart of your life with us.
Pickles is still my choice for a fish. 🐠
These 20 min videos go by so fast. Great filming, editing and most of all content@ thanks bama bass
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.
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.
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.
THANK YOU FOR BEING SO GIVING AND YOUR LOVE FOR LIFE AROUND YOU CAN'T WAIT TO SEE HOW BIG YOUR POND GETS! GOOD JOB!
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.
I just happened to find your first pond build video right when it posted when I was searching for pond build ideas/cost and I’ve been hooked ever since! Love the videos and #30 trending right now! Great work and congrats on the success! Can’t wait for the next one!
But I can't believe how far you came, I remember stumbling across your bass fishing videos and watching your backyard pond video and then this series. One of my favorite channels to watch
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
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.
Love your channel, great content! Always grateful for a new upload so I can see your amazing pond, all your fish and the beautiful wildlife. Your very Blessed with a beautiful family, home and all the things. Thank you for sharing your pond building journey and excited to see what this spring/summer bring. Sending positive vibes and blessings to you from Northern Indiana 🦅🎣💦
It’s always a good day when theres a new pond update video!!
I'm closing on a property in a few weeks with a big pond. Your videos have me so excited about it.
Been such a journey from start to now. Can’t wait to see the shrimp grow. Love this series… noticed you didn’t have a name for P on one of your lists. In lieu of St Patricks day recently passing, I’d like to donate the name “Paddy”. Cheers!
I really like Isurus as a name. It’s the scientific name for mako sharks. I think the name of a fast aggressive feeding shark matches these bass well.
The only series on youtube that i always click right away to watch when there's a new video
Lottie for the bass name! 😁 Great videos and I hope everyone is having a great day
I've been trying to add Malibu to that last M. spot For weeks and weeks. The pond and everything looks beautiful. Thanks!
Here are a few names. Zam and Yankee. I can not believe how the pond has cam long in just 1 year. can not wait to see what you do next with the pond.
On the island, have you thought about using daikon radush seed to help break up the clay? Maybe mix it with a legume and a variety of bunch grass that grows well in your area.
Didn't expect watching these videos is so much fun haha! I love watching them and the wildlife clips are amazing! Thinking about add a "Moneypenny" to the bass list😁
Time flies by when I watch your videos. I hate knowing it is ending. I love the videos man. Totally entertaining and I learn things . Thank you til the next video. It's ok if you make a hour long video every week at the same time and day. 🎉
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.
love too see more of your duck house and coup, wanting to do one myself but stuck on a design, thanks
Dude, you are talented!!! You give me inspiration to do more.
Fish name: Pesca :) I am really loving this series. I can't believe it has taken me this long to watch this video - been a crazy busy week.
I really appreciate you sharing your joy with us. I looked forward to each episode
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 watching these videos. Would love it if you would name a bass bullwinkle.
Your creating a pond like we are living in, I hope you are proud of your self !!
Wow it's amazing how much the crimson Oak pond has developed.ive been watching your Chanel now for over a year now and it's amazing what you have achieved you should be so proud of what you have done.ive noticed you still have the letter P on your fish tagging chart how about papa p for that letter P. Keep having fun God bless can't wait to see more videos.
Chris from the UK.
Really enjoy watching the progress of the pond
First time seeing this series. Wow! gotta a lot of great content to catch up on. I feel like all fisherman dream of building a pond. For the bass name - P is for Pearl Belle. My dogs name. Shes a sweetie.
It’s the best series on Clip-Share
Love your videos! Been following the journey with your pond since the beginning👍🏼Bass name suggestion: Phil 🐟
Curiosity question: if you put Lilly pads and such in the small pond, what are the chances of a bird transferring it to the big pond?
I love watching these videos. Can’t wait until Bonnie and Clyde get in the bed pond! I have a new Bass name Hundo.
If the prawn thing doesn't pan out you could always raise some bait fish. You must lay awake all night trying to figure out what you want to do next! Looking great..!
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!
I'm living vicariously through this channel! The only difference I would do is trout and bigger island with weeping willows. But that's just day dreaming stuff. This is very cool.
these prawn are fun to fish and taste very nice!!!! loved all of your good and hard work!!! keep on doing the good job!! Love from Malaysia!
I just discovered you 1 hr ago and i love all of this so much. Cant stop watching
This is really fun to see and those prawns are HUGE, I was also wondering if you could name one of your bass Quincy
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.
Have you thought about planting prairie grasses to hold down the soil on the island?
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
If there is a P and O name open can there be a Popeye and Oliveoil? 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.
Been following your channel from the beginning of the pond build. I lost my mother several years ago in 2007 she held an affinity for ducks and is the person who instilled the love of nature in me. Id be very appreciative and honored if you'd name that female mallard Brenda for my momma.
Awesome!! The fish are getting bigger!
Not just known as a fresh water prawn its known as a giant fresh water prawn. Be sure to use vinegar in the cooking process it really brings out the flavor
The prawns would be a good way to help keep the pond clean. I know ppl use fresh water shrimp for décor and algae eaters in Aquariums.
We always called the largest fish in the lake "Walter" so I nominate that name for "W". Love the channel.
Loving the videos, best part of Sunday’s for me. Bass names - H for Harper (my daughters name and Z - Zelda.
If you plan on using prawns for bait or whatever,letting those protein pellets fall will give them a sorce of food if you introduce them to the main pond...regardless great work,look forward to the future content.!
Stumbled across your channel this weekend and I've now watched all of the pond videos. Great channel!
A few names to toss into the ring:
A - Anaconda
I - Ironsides
U - Ursula
X - Xen
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 can't tell you how much I enjoy your videos. Thank you.
I died a little when I saw the duck trying to land. So cute 🤣
I’d like the name “Big Gus” for the male prawn, seems fitting for that massive set of claws he’s packing.
Yeah and name the 1 Armed Bandit....Cptn Hook😂
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
P should be peanut. Loving the videos and the progress has turned out great! Makes me wanna buy my own land and do all this crazy stuff with it.
I remember I kept asking for crawfish to be stocked and was so bummed when you announced why you couldn't this is what I've been waiting for you to do . Another great video
They look exactly like the native prawns in Australia named Cherabin absolutely beautiful eating
This series makes my Monday morning!
E- Eddy (water current)
J- Joffery (Mean one that sits on the oak throne)
R- Rod Breaker
T- Tarter Sauce
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.
