For a number of years now, I have spent a good portion of my time on lakes in the eastern portion of the State of Texas helping East Texans to manage their private lakes. It is a fascinating line of work!
It requires a unified approach to manage a pond or lake, especially if you are trying to create a fishery. There are also a lot of questions that come up about individual issues like pond algae, lake weeds, lake weed killers, and water clarity. This seems like a good place to talk about some of these things.
If you have questions regarding the care and feeding of your private lake or pond, feel free to ask them here, in the comment section, and we will be happy to reply in a post.
