When we bought our house the pond was already here. I have never owned a pond before. We were very excited about having one. In this picture the end closest to the driveway is the shallow end. The deep end is about 8' deep.
Shortly after moving in Joe decided to stock it. He contacted the fish man who brings baby fish into town to sell. He bought about $500 worth of babies. Catfish, crappie and bass.
We love when our family and friends come to fish. Last spring my brother and sister-in-law came over on a beautiful day to fish.
That's Morris, my brother-in-law. He is a great guy. Not too bad of a fisherman either.
That is his wife, Cindy. She's from Alabama. She talks a bit strange. What I mean by that is she calls a fly swatter a fly flapper. A minnow is a minner. You know, things like that. She is a sweet lady though and they are the perfect couple.
This is my neice Katy and her daughter McKenzie. See McKenzie's little pole? She fished also.
That is one thing that is so neat about having a pond. It's kinda like living at the lake, in a way. Some pictures I have make the pond look kind of like a lake.
It was really pretty during the ice storm we had earlier this year.
It makes a great background for pictures too.
Then we have these silly pups. They love the pond.
I just might have to take up fishing this year. I just can't stand to touch the fish. Ewwwww.
