The marathon started last Tuesday up at Enjoy Field in Cliffton, IL. My partner Chef Todd and I killed the cattails in the pond in front of the air strip, sprayed a bit of curly-leafed pond weed, and then headed north to do some Electrofishing for Charlie Hines at the Windy City Farm near Wilmington, IL.
We dialed up almost 100 LMB and a couple dozen pickeral.
Tagged a few bass for his grandkids to catch for prizes and devised a management plan for him to follow to put a bit of extra weight on his bass.
Wednesday we headed north again, this time I dropped the guys off in Henry and helped them get started on Dick Rupipers 12x12 floating dock with a couple bench seats.
From there Allen and I headed North to Princeton to treat Larry Gerdes pond for Algae and Curly-Leafed Pondweed.
On our way back down to Henry we stopped in at the Trainor's pond near Hennepin for a consultation and cattail application. They have a super nice chunk of paradise which will be their future home site. Finished devising a game plan to help them manage their cattails and pond for the future and headed back to Henry to help put the finishing touches on the dock.
