Pond Management Services

Pond Management services are our specialty at American Sport Fish. We can turn any pond, regardless of size, into your own honey hole through monthly pond management. We utilize fertilization, supplemental feeding, herbicide application, and electrofishing to accomplish this. The proper fertilization program can improve the productivity of your pond by over 300%; however, improper fertilization can create an aquatic vegetation nightmare. Take all of the guesswork out of it and let American Sport Fish maximize the potential of your pond.

Supplemental feeding will help push your bluegill to the next level. American Sport Fish is a licensed dealer for Texas Hunter Feeder and can install and maintain your feeder. Call today to start fattening up your bluegill, and therefore your bass.

Aquatic weeds can turn a beautiful fishing hole into an ugly, unfishable nightmare. These weeds can be controlled through a combination of herbicide application and grass carp stocking. As part of ASF’s monthly management program, we will eliminate weeds before they become a problem at no additional labor charge. Whether you are a monthly customer or just need our services or advice, let our certified applicators take care of your weed problems.

There are many things that can cause the fish population of a pond to get out of balance. Electrofishing is the best way to determine exactly what your population looks like and the most effective way to correct the problem. So don’t give up on that pond full of skinny bass, let us design a plan to bring it back to life through our pond management services.
