2011 Electrofishing

With the unusually warmer weather we have had the past few weeks, we decided to begin our spring electrofishing at Greg Stewart’s property in Watkinsville, GA. Dr. Stewart has six ponds ranging from one to five acres in size. Most of these ponds contain bass and bluegill except with one pond that is overrun with channel catfish. Like most of the ponds we encounter, these ponds need some tweaking to get them where they need to be. With multiple ponds on the property we will be able to create a very diverse fishery for Dr. Stewart. We are currently developing a specific management plan for each pond ranging from trophy bass, hybrid striped bass, trophy bluegill, etc.
