The Dixie Deer Classic was held this past weekend and we want to thank all those who came out to the NC State Fairgrounds for the show. We were blessed with the opportunity to host the Kids’ Fishing Rodeo and ended up having over 750 kids participate in the fishing. Many of these kids were able to catch their very first fish and all left with a smile. We will be reaching out to those that left contact information at our booth and hope we can help you fulfill any of your pond management needs.
Come see Triangle Pond Management at our booth at the Southern Farm Show Wednesday, January 30th through Friday, February 1st from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm each day. The show is located at the NC State Fairgrounds and admission is free. The show exhibits a variety of agriculture and land management services. Bring the family and come talk to us about our wildlife management services, fisheries management, fish stocking, and general pond management/stormwater services.
This winter is a great time to add lime to your lake or pond. Water in ponds reflects the quality of the soils in which they are located. Most ponds in the southeast region have low levels of total alkalinity, total hardness, and low pH values. Having poor water quality in a fish pond means the overall fish production is slowed. Liming is an important method for correcting many of these water quality issues, as well as helping to improve fish productivity. Continue reading Lime Your Pond This Winter to Improve Water Quality→
With the deer season in North Carolina coming to a close, and spring around the corner, prudent hunters and landowners are reflecting on their season and how to improve their deer hunting success in the following year. Whether the goal is larger antlers or a healthier overall herd, mineral supplementation through the winter months into the spring can have a positive effect on your deer.
Triangle Pond Management carries Trophy Rock all natural mineral licks. These products contain the trace minerals needed by bucks growing new antlers. Does producing fawns will also benefit from mineral supplementation for gestation and lactation. Contact Triangle Pond Management today for your mineral supplement needs.
Triangle Pond Management Wildlife Services recently released live mallards in in a duck impoundment they are managing. Live birds in a newly established food source help attract and hold wild birds to your property. At Triangle Pond, we specialize in aquatic plantings that complement waterfowl. We include perennial aquatic plants in our management plans because they reestablish year after year, and if maintained properly, can be very cost effective (rather than planting year after year EX: corn). If you or anyone you know is interested in learning more about our waterfowl management services including construction and management, contact us today for more information.
Maintaining a healthy fish population is one objective that most pond owners have in common. A great way to strengthen your forage base and create a balanced fish population is through supplemental feeding. Including an automatic fish feeder into your pond management approach will provide a secondary food source to grow your forage fish and will increase their survival and reproduction success. As bait productivity improves and a self-sustaining forage base is established, the pond’s fish population will become more balanced and the entire ecosystem will benefit.
