Releasing the Fish!

Here is my dad releasing the fish, pollywogs, and crawdads into the big pond. It's amazing how big that pond is. I think Sig was trying to help too. We rescued about 180 fish, including bass and some blue gill and probably about 100 pollywogs and maybe 10-15 crawdads. What a success. When we initially released them some of the fish were in shock or we thought were dead, but when we came back in a couple hours they were all gone so I figure they all survived and swam away. Now the pond is very muddy because of all the rain we had. Between rains we try to feed them when it isn't too muddy and now that it has rained so much the other pond has filled up and over flowed atleast once. During the summer the little pond will be full of fish again so we might have to do this again next year.
