Staycation continued to my backyard!
Yes, my backyard!
I realize most don’t have a stocked pond in their backyard, but I do and I love it! While my sister was here we went fishing! She was so excited to go fishing. So was I! She fishes often with her husband. I on the other hand had not fished since I was a kid.
When Renee saw the pond for the first time and saw that the pond was stocked she wanted to fish. Off to Basspro shop we went! Bought fishing poles, worms, hooks and the rest of the supplies to fill my tackle box.
Did we catch anything? OH HECK YES!!
Catch and Release
So what is in the stocked pond…other than a pair of muskrats that are creating havoc with the water level???? Muskrats can cause the water level to drop from the tunnels they dig from the edge of the pond. And! The tunnels can cause the ground to cave in…just imagine walking along the edge of the pond and all of a sudden the ground gives way…
In my pond we have Crappie, large and small mouth bass, and blue gill…plus snapping turtles, painted turtles…very cool birds come to my pond too. And I can’t forget the frogs! Lots of bull frogs.I absolutely love living here. It is my staycation all the time. I walk out to the pond everyday. I stand on the dock and just look at the water. Its calming for me. Some days I eat my lunch on the dock. I find it relaxing.
This guy visits the pond at least 3 mornings a week
We have amazing bonfires 🙂
Who wants to come over and visit? We can have a day of relaxation.
