EXPERIMENT: Catch & Feed 199 NIGHT CRAWLERS to Pond Fish (Surprising Results!)


Trying to train our fish off pellet feed and on to natural foods like earth worms or night-crawlers is a bit of a challenge to say the least! In this video I'll show you how to night-crawlers or dew worms as we call them here in Canada. On the bright side, it looks like the fish have really done a number on the tadpoles and have eaten a lot of them! Mark's Channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UuANi5-yoso I'll talk about how I used to pick worms as a kid and how much money I used to make running a small business. I will use a syringe to inflate the worms so they stay up in the water column. I also take a trip around the pond with the kayak and take water temperature measurements. Our trophy rainbow trout fish are on the way from Lyndon Trout Hatcheries! I meet up with Clarke at Lyndon Trout Pond to pick up a couple hundred trout of various sizes from 6" right up to 5 pounds! Can you help name our trophy fish? After the fish are in the pond, we egg-wash, deep fry in oil and devour super fresh fillets hand delivered by Clarke from the hatchery right at the pond!

Our goal for this series is to turn an ordinary farm pond into something extraordinary by digging it deeper to help keep the fish cooler, fix any algae issues, add oxygen by way of pumps, solar systems and off grid aeration, and introduce a thriving pond ecosystem including frogs, minnows, tadpoles, crawfish, and insects to help our fish become more natural feeders. Lyndon offers both fish stock for ponds of any sort as well as stocked pond fishing, fly fishing, and fishing of any sort for kids to adults. You can book corporate events, or a day with the kids. Lyndon will show you how to clean the fish and even rent you a rod and real. Just show up and fish! www.lyndonfishhatcheries.com. Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/lyndonfishingpond/ The fastest way to dig a big pond is to use the help of a qualified excavator. This excavator normally digs out house foundations and the operator has years of experience digging giant holes in the ground and removing mountains of material. In the previous episode we had Clarke from Lyndon Trout Ponds and Fish Hatchery measure water quality of our fish pond for oxygen and water temperature. This pond was also monitored year round to see if it holds enough water and has the depth the fish need to stay cold. Rainbow trout need good to excellent water quality and plenty of oxygen. Water flow is an asset to help fish spawn. We discovered that the water in our pond is filled continuously with the help of ground water and is very cold, even in the summer. Trout will die if water gets above 25 degrees Celsius. Shade also helps keep water cool and our pond is sheltered for a good part of the day with trees. Our plan to excavate the remainder of the pond, pushing the size out to about a half acre in size and a water depth of around 8 feet. 15 feet is more ideal, but our base is shale and therefore can not be dug any deeper. A trout pond is very difficult to establish, but it is very possible to do correctly if you know what the fish need. Aeration of the pond is something we will be exploring as we see how the season develops. We are hopeful that water remains cool so dissolved oxygen in the water remains high. After we dig the pond, we will let is sit for a few weeks before putting our fish in the pond. Ideally you will let the pond sit for a full year, but we are not patient enough for this.
