Aquatic Vegetation Control
Aquatic vegetation, both native and exotic, can become a nuisance if not properly managed. This is especially true in fertile ponds where there are plenty of nutrients available for plant growth
Dredging
American Sportfish also specializes in dredging. Our equipment is ideal for dredging boat slips, marina slips, in and around culverts, and boat ramps.
Electrofishing
An Electrofishing Assessment involves the use of a specially designed electrofishing boat. The fish are stunned by an electrical current and are captured with a dip net and placed in a live well.
Supplemental Feeding
A supplemental feeding program can increase the size of your bluegill while also increasing their reproduction. Increased reproduction translates to more food for your bass population.

Liming Ponds and Lakes
Most lakes and ponds in the southeast, except those built in Blackbelt soils or those receiving water from limestone aquifers, will benefit from the addition of agricultural limestone.
