When Brandon was about 10 or 11 we caught this catfish on one of our fishing trips. He was small so Brandon wanted to put him in the Koi pond 8'x16'x3' that I built in the backyard in 2001. The catfish is now about a foot and a half long and is still going strong 6 or 7 years later. We have one Koi, so the Koi and him are buddies, they both get Koi food and I give them worms from the garden to keep them happy. This spring we will have tons of male frogs in the pond calling the ladies in from what sounds like miles away on a quiet night.
I don’t put frogs in it they just show up,
kind of along the lines of if you build it they will come.
