Winter Pond Maintenance

Winter Provides Opportunities for Beneficial Pond Maintenance

By Bob Lusk, Bob Lusk Outdoors

We look forward to Fall lake survey season. It presents opportunities to visit numerous properties, observe innovative management methods, and share them with you. Our staff hopes this suggestion will protect feeders and improve feeding efficiency.

Many folks confront a continual challenge with shoreline feeders - chasing fluctuating water levels to ensure food pellets land in the water, no on the ground. Several years ago, our region experienced a drought. Feeders were moved to locations that would be in the water if the lake were at normal pool. Welcome, but sudden heavy rain filled lakes and flooded feeders.

Innovative pondmeisters installed bases to elevate feeders and reduce risk of future incidents. Determine your full water mark. Research past seasonal drawn down to calculate how far water typically recess during dry months and how high the lake has risen in flood events. Use flood stage data to design base height so the base can be placed at the normal pool mark. As water recedes, raise feeder legs. Cost of models in adjacent photos averaged $100 to $150. Not a bad one-time investment considering future losses.

Texas Hunter Products offers an optional pedestal mount for select models, a great way to install your new Texas Hunter Products directional feeder on the side of your pond or lake by simply securing the post into the ground and mounting the feeder to the pre-drilled platform.

Contact Bob Lusk Outdoors for a complete line of Texas Hunter Fish Feeders, the pedestal mount option shown here and for answers to all of your pond and lake management questions.

Placing your Shot on Whitetails

By Texas Hunter Products Contributor JOE DOGGETT  Many guides and veteran hunters prefer the low-behind-the-shoulder placement on a broadside or slightly quartering-away deer (and that angle is more common than many hunters may realize). The stricken deer might run but should fall dead in mid-stride within 100 yards. Minimal venison is damaged, and most important, this placement strikes the boiler room [...]
