I have a plan for a very small pond in my yard, and have done some limited research on the project, but thought there might be some good advise here. My plan involves a very small portion of ground(2/10 acre) and will have, a water source(small muddy river with a relift), an aeriator(electric motor driving a paddle), and a pier. My only interest is catfish and I can afford to feed and monitor the pond daily for problems. I love to catch and eat all types of catfish and would love for me and my children to be able to walk out in the back yard and catch fish without walking down a steep bank to the river that is hit or miss fishing. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
