    Congrats on getting the pond to this stage looks amazing ,I’m only an old dumb plumber but that leak in the dam wall could end up slowing that part of the bank away ,that much moisture between lifts in the clay may be worth meeting the builders back on site to give you a guarantee on those area’s around the leaks ,all the best.

    I would add some tree saver tubes such as ones from mossy oak native nursery or the cheaper route would be to get some chicken wire and staple to some small wooden stakes. Especially with the rut about to start up. Those young trees being in the open will be magnets for new rubs and scrapes.

    • Nom Nom

    Love this series! I’ve been cooking crawfish for over 30 years and have been using the Louisiana Crawfish boil and usually the liquid crab boil with it. We just did our fist boil of the year yesterday and I went with your suggestion of a bag of SwampFire along with the Louisiana Crawfish and it’s excellent. Perfect combination of spices! Thank you for the recommendation!

    • Ed Martin
      Ed Martin 3 months ago

      Not a worry as long as the roots are not in the levee. Roots from dead brush and trees will have pushed their way thru the soil and will leave tunnels as the roots are left to rot and are absorbed.

      BamaBass is a joy to watch. He's got positive energy, without having to scream, yell and act like an idiot. He doesn't take us on shopping trips to Wal Mart. He just gets right to the subject. His interaction with family is great. He seems like a guy you could go fishing or have a beer with. Best of luck to him. I'll be watching.

  • Bruce is Wild
    Bruce is Wild 3 months ago +1

    when planting a tree it's best to dig a hole twice as wide as the root ball and keep any grafts above the soil line. You also want the majority of your mix to consist of the soil the roots will be growing into. if the soil in the hole is too much higher quality, the roots will self-contain in the more nutritious soil and become root bound instead of growing out like they should. Still loving the vids. Keep them coming!

  • Micheal SNd

    What a great pond and wonderfull experience hearing you explain everything your a very lucky man too have such great land
    Night rider would be a great name for the black coyote

  • drekfletch
    drekfletch 4 months ago +90

    That oak hole looked rather smooth on the sides. Be careful to rough up the sides of the hole, otherwise the clay will act like a pot and constrict the roots of the oak. Also a good idea is if you must bring in new soil, to mix some of the clay into it, so the roots don't get shock from the change from one soil to another.

    • Ed Martin
      Ed Martin 3 months ago +1

      @Dr. Seuss I think the oak trees should be a minimum of something like 50 feet apart.

    • liarzdice
      liarzdice 3 months ago +3

      @gameaholic18 makes it unstable too and more prone to falling. Twelve years though, ouch, that's not fun.
      On another note I actually prefer a smaller tree in a pot than trying to get the biggest one for "value." In my experience more likely to already be root bound. You can massage the roots but I think you're better off with a tree that hasn't experienced the full effect of having a pot constrain it's ability to spread in a healthy manner.

    • gameaholic18
      gameaholic18 3 months ago +4

      @liarzdice i agree, i moved a 6 year old oak into a new part of my property and it died about 12 years ago now, the root ball didnt spread past the whole i had dug due to it being compact clay instead of sandy loam

    • Dr. Seuss
      Dr. Seuss 3 months ago +4

      I don't know much about planting trees, but are there too many Oaks in close proximity to the clay liner? Those roots can get expansive.

    • FyF Gear
      FyF Gear 4 months ago +7

      first thing i thought, those holes werent big enough for those oaks.. should be 3 times the size of the root ball.

    great channel! you may wanna look into caging those trees in to prevent the bucks from horning them. I have planted several trees on my property and in the fall the deer will tear em up if they arent cage in.

  • Benjamin Olsen
    Benjamin Olsen 4 months ago +63

    I would name him "The Lone Ranger" since he is always by himself and just looks like a force not to be wrecked with. Also goes with the theme of the rest of the names around the pond

  • Freddy Early
    Freddy Early 3 months ago

    Love the pond, one of my favorite videos. Can't wait to see it fully stocked, and think the black coyote should be named BLACK JACK. It's like it's out on a gamble. Thanks can't wait until the next videos.

  • Chunk'o What
    Chunk'o What 3 months ago +2

    Love your videos, very informative. I have some native aquatic plant suggestions if you're interested. Submerged aquatic plants produce oxygen, and they eat up nutrients that would otherwise be utilized by algae. All of these should be available from aquatic plant retailers on ebay. These should only be added after the pond has accumulated some organic waste from the fish.
    Ludwigia repens, or "creeping primrose", is a common North American water plant that grows sunset orange (or even red) leaves underwater and buttercup yellow flowers above water.
    Eleocharis parvula, or "dwarf hairgrass", is a lovely carpeting plant that can look very similar to an underwater grassy lawn. Likes to grow in organic rich substrate, perhaps near one of the brush piles where leaves will be accumulating.
    There are many beautiful species of potamogeton in the US, but they are not usually commercially available. You can sometimes find specimens near culverts by the road.
    Some others: bacopa carolina, vallisneria americana (might prefer running river water rather than still), hornwort, and mermaid weed (one of my favorites). All of these should do fine planted in any shallow area, again only after the fish have established a nitrogen source in the pond.

    Thanks for taking us along for the ride.
    Are you going to "tag" your pet bass before you put it in the pond? Just wondering. I'm sure that if you let people fish out there that he would have to be released.

  • edge
    edge 4 months ago +59

    You might want to watch the oak on the island. Whenever you plant a tree surrounded by clay and put potting soil ... you create a 'bowl' and water cannot seep into the clay fast enough, the hole fills up with water and drowns the root ball and the tree dies.
    If you can re-plant the tree by digging a hole twice the width and depth and - IMPORTANT - mix the potting soil with
    clay equally and replant. The tree has about an eighty five per cent chance of the roots being able to penetrate the clay.
    I live in Houston with my property built entirely on clay. A landscaper friend told me how to plant trees. I have planted (29) trees on my property - mainly nuttal oaks with live oaks and crepe mertals - they all survived - going on 25 years.
    Love the videos and keep up posting about the pond forever. Thanks

    Can we get some underwater drone footage of the areas of the pond where you added the sealant. I'm really curious about that procedure. So many questions. Does it eventually make a concrete type of layer? Will you need to add a layer of sand or clay to keep gravity from drawing all of the sealant to the deeper parts of the pond? How will it affect the aquatic vegetation?

    Bald cypress are awesome around water. We have a lot here in SW Louisiana and they are great for bait fish. The “knees” grow in the water and make awesome cover for them.

    One deer season in Missouri I was walking across a big field that had a little strip of woods in the middle. As I got closer i scanned the wood line and made eye contact with with a solid white coyote. As soon as i did it turned and went back into the woods. I walked the road through the patch of woods and saw the white coyote and a solid black one run out of the woods, across the field and into the big woods.
    I later discovered they had cornered a wounded buck in the little patch of woods. It had been shot 4 times and it's back leg was rotten. I'm sure the coyotes ate good that day after I left.
    It was the only time i have ever seen a black or a white coyote and i saw them both together at the same time. They were big too.
    None of my other coyote encounters have ever been like that one. Every other time as soon as the coyote smelled or saw me they took off. That white one watched me come across that field until I made eye contact.
    Lots of weird stories of critters in that area though.

    Ahh, the moment I look forward to the most on my Sunday evenings, I don’t know about anyone else but watching these videos just puts me in a relaxed state. Thanks for the great series! And for the black Coyote, a cool name would be Nova- a new born star (of the series) 🙂

      @Dr. Seuss there’s a lot to look forward to! And I am learning a lot along the way, maybe I will use this knowledge some day soon for my own pond 🙂

    Awesome video sir. I've never seen a black coyote before till now. Thanks for sharing. I'm thinking Wild E Coyote from the old cartoon would be great name for it lol.

    What is the 2 part polymer. I have my own small pond that has a few leaks. Also do you think bentonite would work better? We fill the pond and the water level drops through the week and until it reaches a certain point where it hold a bit of water. So what do you guys think would be best in my situation?

    Our family would like to recommend the black coyote to be called shadow (since we couldn’t tell what he was at first and is a shadow of other coyote’s). Excited to see the fish being added!

    I say you call the coyote “Duster”. Combination of Deer Buster because when he shows up they take off. Love your videos man.

    Wiley is definitely the best name. The pond is looking good glad the leak is a lot better. The oak on the island is perfect. God Bless we appreciate the vids

    I can’t wait to see the first bass caught outta there. I’ve watched the entire series and thought how great this would be to fish. Will you open the pond to the public?

      Im pretty sure hes thinking of building a house on the property so opening to the public wouldnt seem like the best of ideas but I remember hearing him say that he was thinking of inviting subscribers out to fish it with him. Hopefully youre one of the lucky ones!

    To go along with Moby I would choose Morpheus for the coyote name, and or Cooter to go with the owl name

    Did you make sure to expose the root flares on those new trees? You’ll see so much more growth throughout the years if you did. If not, it really should be done.

    I'm looking to ask questions about my fish tank filtration system in my 125 gallon tank. I'm trying to get it ready before my cancer Sergey on the 21 of February. So I can have some peace of mind while I'm stuck at home for 6 weeks. An your about the only one I watch. Please help. I love watching you feed your fish. THANK YOU for what you do.

    The name Ghost is particularly cool. It stems from the fur of the dog.

    A wind mill on a 25' tower, runs a builtin air bubbler, would look nice on your island. I have one on my pond brought the water Quality up and it looks nice.

    I'm going with "Onyx" on the coyote. Just part of nature, beautiful and powerful. Also, can I ask what game camera you have with the night vision? Want to put on one my farm at the cabin.

  • Jena Brinjak

    I like the name "Lakota" for the coyote. Black Coyote was a Lakota tribesman with Sitting Bull. This series has been so cool, thanks for sharing! I want to reiterate what others have commented, you should protect those trees from bucks, they'll wreck them during the rut.

      @bags GA Generally on the internet shouting out other people's channel's on someone's page/post is a big NO, but since they're in the same genre I think it's ok. I would shy away from it though for future reference

    Really enjoyed this whole series, only thing we disagree on is letting the coyotes stay. Thank you for all the great content. Was awesome experience to almost be part of. Thank you sir. .

    Hey just wondering what way you set up the gorpro for the night lapse. It's some of the best night lapse footage I have seen!

  • shaggy (shaggystoner013)

    Me personally as a louisiana native I'd recommend using the big bottle of liquid crab boil much better flavor and on a side note if you ever want to expand your tree variety holler at me have large variety to chose from

    Build a post for the Owl next to the tractor parking spot. Works well for rodent control.
