After another grinder of a season the Spring 2019 electroshock season has come to a close or at least it appears. AES shocks around 100-120 lakes per year. Not many companies come close to us in terms of lakes shocked. The lake electroshocked in this blog is one of our favorite sets of lakes located […]

2019 Crayfish Stocking

Chilly Start Another spring has wrapped up and with that comes crayfish stocking. This spring was odd and it even continued into our stockings. Past crayfish stockings are usually accompanied with Gatorade, 90 degree temps, and the dreaded swamp funk we get from releasing a couple thousand pounds of crayfish. The very first delivery went […]

Bass Harvest…..it never stops The pond being electrofished today has a common problem that not many property owners think about but something we see often.

Lake Liming for New Lakes

georgia pond construction

New lakes are a beautiful thing. They are ripe for the imagination. Property owners can make humps and points to bounce a football jig off or sticking tree tops mid-lake that will one day result in a bass crushing a top water plug. However, till that point we have to do the small things that […]

Lake Aeration in Jackson, Georgia

outdoor water solutions

Aeration and lake liming are two lake improvements that generate the least amount of enthusiasm from clients. Unlike fishing stocking where there’s instant gratification of seeing 10,000 bluegill go into the lake, seeing 800 meters of weighted airline sink into the lake is a big let down. However, subtle improvements are the difference between phenomenal […]
