Okay, what happened to it.

Where did the thread about AllenG moving the fish go? I can't find it anywhere.

*jsharr opens a package containing fish*

What the hell is this?

It is sending a message. It means that The Mad Scientists of Foo thread sleeps with the fishes.

Yeah, did the fish not get enough bubbles and Neptune, lord of the sea, took his revenge by removing any trace that AllenG ever existed?

I got pulled over and the wait shocked the fish beyond recovery. I cleaned them and gave them to my mother's church's soup kitchen.
I deep sixed the thread because it was a really depressing day.

Yes I can. It's going to take months to process though.


The upshot, which made it worth it, I was at the church today and a little old man said that the trout was the best meal he had in years. He had tears in his eyes, so I had tears in mine.

That would be tough to not cry for.

Not to drag this out, but I hope the stop was at least for speeding and not for suspicious activity or some made up stuff.

Suspicious activity. City cop was wondering why water was dripping from my tanks (trash cans) and became confused when he saw fish. Had to make calls to see if transporting live fish was legal. By the time he had the answer the fish were mostly belly up.

I'm thinking of trying tilapia in the pond next.
Trout are going to have to wait until November.

Trout can be stocked in Southern ponds during the cold months. When the water gets above 70 the trout will start to die off (it's just the opposite with tilapia). My plan was to have the local boy scout troupe come over and have a fishing day. They will get their day next year now.

As the trout become sluggish the bass and other sport fish will gorge on them, and I have a goodly number of 6-8 pound bass and several in the 10+ range, so they can eat some big forage fish. Tilapia breed prolifically which also gives the sport fish plenty of forage, but since they die in cold weather they won't take the pond over.

I'm getting a sizable tax return this year and plan on burning it all in the pond. My pond has always been a good pond but I'm going to do my best to make it into a great pond. And a little bit of work will have benefits for years to come.

Stop "messin" with trout,penguins,polar bears,hockey and such down there.It's not the natural selection of nature and you may breed some pissed off demographic gentic altered monster that kills and eats good-ol-boys.

Now Talipia will work but they tend to eat a lot of poop and lately many farm raised talipia has cause some health concerns.

Rednecks are ropey. Gonna have to be some tough trout to work their way through one.
