Hi!\n\nI'm in the planning stages of a pond I'd like to start NEXT YEAR since this season will be ending soon. I'll spend the winter accumulating supplies.\n\nVery simply, I want a pond that will sustain fish until I'm ready to eat. I'll be digging it myself with a backhoe but It will probably be 4-6ft deep, 4-5ft wide, and about 15ft long. A fairly decent size, I think? I know this goes well beyond many kit sizes and the design is itself custom so I'm prepared to do the work that goes with that.\n\nBeing near the Detroit River and the many lakes we have around here, I'm hoping to be able to stock the pond with fish I catch. Obviously, I'd only stock the pond with a single species but I'd like to get out on the river early in the spring at the time of one of our big fish runs and catch a couple dozen or so, bring them home and keep them in the pond until time to eat :)\n\nIdeally I'd be able to scoop a couple out with a net, prepare them and put them on the grill within minutes. I'm also putting in a chick coop and plan to feed the chicken guts to the fish and vice versa as I work through my seasonal cull. \n\nHas anyone done this before? Does it sound possible?
