When I bought this farm it had five ponds on it, one that had catfish. We just caught loads of catfish and put them in five gallon buckets of water and dumped them into the other ponds... Now I have four ponds of catfish. My largest pond it turns out had large mouth Bass in it that we were unaware of until we filled that pond with catfish. After the first year we had thousands of catfish in there, then there was none.... But then we started seeing the gigantic bass in there... lol..
