    Who waits for these videos every Sunday evening 🙋‍♂️
  • @felixwei4499
    Hey, you can easily overwinter tropical lillies. Basically If it gets colder, you get them out, cut of leafes and roots and put the rhizome in some moist moss or sand. Store them somewhere cool but not freezing and they should come back nice and healthy when you Put them Back in the pond in spring. You can find a lot of Info on that in the Internet, would be a shame if all those lillies where to die of
  • @AdeleSephus
    It's CRAZY to think that that corner of that property was just a dirt field not that many years ago! Now, it's an Aquatic Slice of Heaven!
  • you want to ensure scales are calibrated mate, weigh something you know the weight of and make sure it's right
  • “Folks at home” is the best way to start a YouTube video. Great channel!
  • "If there's one thing I know about Bass is they love an easy meal". That is why the Bass aren't eating those eatable Blue Gill. The Bass are so used to those small shiners being thrown into the pond, that is the size they focus on. Can you throw larger bait fish into the pond to teach them to hunt bigger prey? Also the abundance of shiners makes the Bass target smaller prey.
  • @NomutMaiw
    It's always amazing to see you construct, and this "Dream" pond is the ideal complement to your five-acre pond setup!
  • @ReelFishyGuy
    In my experience, it seems relatively common to see bass top out around that 2.5-3.5lb mark when they don’t have larger forage. You gotta find a way to entice them to start eating the blue gill. Talk with some people but sometimes you can clip fins on some to make them swim weird and look like an easier meal or stock a few hundred in a smaller size. Bass should pick up on the pattern and shape and start to target them more frequently once they gain some confidence in seeing them as food.
  • It’s been two weeks overdue!!! I was heartbroken not to have had a video last Sunday lol… keep up the good work BamaBass!
  • Those crawdads will migrate during rainy periods and get into the big pond. I don’t think they will hurt the clay liner, but just thought I’d let you know.
  • I'd maybe check your scale or possibly pick up a new one. I understand they may be predictable losses after the spawn but those losses seemed relatively consistent. That scale has definitely seen a lot of fish over the years and may be getting worn out.
  • @YunielRuane
    Gadget is the appropriate name for the third squirrel, in keeping with the Chip N Dale animation.
  • @ryanperry9472
    Dude...your videos are my therapy! I am so relaxed watching them! I love seeing all the different wild life that shows up, love the pond build, and love everything about them! I get excited when i see one show up in my feed! Please keep up the great work and thank you for the free therapy! I always make sure to like ;)
  • @QuMuIdk
    The third squirrels name should be Gadget, 😊 keeping with the Chip N Dale cartoon. 😁
  • There are thousands of dudes out here living vicariously through you. I feel like that's my pond too without doing all the work and spending all those moolah. Thanks man. :)
  • @ninawink8973
    I knew the sand beach would be important. Most birds (ducks and the like excluded) NEED that sand bath to get all clean and with a sand beach there you have now made it prime territory for those apex predator birds to move in like you wanted! I hope you get an excited pair of bird out there!
  • @RetroBerner
    Aren't you worried that some of those crawfish will find their way into the pond? Amazing how far it has come in just a hundred days!
  • @thomasb4467
    So we went and bought some of the LMNT packs using the BAMA Bass promo. Oh my word is it tasty! We like the watermelon, orange, and grapefruit the best so far.
