I'll probably have a friend that's familiar with fishing help me out the first time.
Heather Stovall wrote:Thanks Michael. I hadn't heard about making a cove for that purpose. It's good that I'm asking before digging my pond. I was thinking of using a funnel type trap. I haven't gone fishing since I was very young, so this should be quite an adventure. What is the best way to kill the fish? Hitting them on the head? I was also thinking maybe a good way to harvest some of them would be to have people pay me to come fish at my pond.
