Have gotten time to go fishing lately. I have a small river 10 minutes from my home. I am able to park close the bank, so can get my gear organized easily. Have managed to catch channels of 8lb, two 6's, a five and two 3's. I'm not a meat hunter and because I carry a 50 gallon barrel of water on my truck I have been taking them home alive and putting them in a 3/4 acre pond that I have. This pond has a large number of black bullhead that I can't control. They continually stir up the bottom and I can have a hard time keeping the bottom sealed. I have killed it out with rotenone and bleach twice over the years to no avail. Last year I put twenty 2 lb largemouth bass in it and it has helped decrease the numbers of bullheads. I caught the cats with information I have learned off this site-especially using cut bait (bluegill and redear sunfish). The only thing I have used. My question, finally, is will running water grown cat's survive in a pond's still water? Haven't seen them go tit's up yet , but I have several large snapping turtles in there and they could be cleaning them up if they are dead. They should, if they survive help with killing the bullhead. Thanks.
