    Kenny, that's lookin' real good. I've got a pond in my back yard that I built about two years ago. I'm ready to build a bigger one now.
    Good luck on your project and give us some more pics as ya go.

    i grew up with something just like that in my backyard. we used to keep enough gills to last four or five trips in something like that. every now and again my dad would throw a few channels in there for us kids to catch. we were only 6 to 8 years old at the time. we would stay up all night fishing in pretty much a bait tank, but it is something i'll remember forever.

    I would warn you they are addictive. I just increased the size of mine. It 8x17x3.5. I have two 650 gph pumps to aerate it. Still deciding on what I want to put in it. Thinking of hybrid gill. they will hit 3lbs in two years. Fish from my patio. lol
