Was hoping to show off some of the big gills in our pond, but the darn cats hogged all the food! I counted 6 catfish feeding. Dad just told me a while back he thought there were only 3 left. Looks like I'll be having a few more catfish dinners.
I tried to feed the fish at WI a couple years ago, but I never saw any of them coming to the top to eat.
My buddy bought a house with a pond and he decided to feed the fish regularly. It took a few weeks of regular feeding to get them to "surface feed". He fed them about an hour before dark nearly everyday. If he would walk by the pond around feeding time the fish would come to the surface just waiting to get fed.
