The Dugout Dude’s main purpose is to assist people with water quality issues as it pertains to dugouts. Randy’s video:

With a former background in Alberta Agriculture as a Water
Technician, The Dug Out Dude can give you the down and dirty of what you need to know about your dugout. Randy specialises in treatment of dugouts for water quality issues, for a better quality of country life.

These aerators work super awesomely! Too bad it’s late for our number #1 fish.

We will show you just how easy it is to install the direct drive solar aerators. If you can put a post in the ground, you can install the dug out dude’s aerator.

“The Dug Out Dude” will ship his solar panels to the US or Canada. These panels use the sun and convert directly to pumped air through a hose and submerged stone to supply air to a pond. These are great for cleaning up algae and supplying much needed oxygen to fish. As long as you have sunshine, you can supply air to your pond.

Sadly Clarke Spent, our monster 5 pound fish passed away suddenly and thrashing for unknown reasons. Likely from poor oxygenation, too much algae, too little food, or to high water temperatures! It’s hard to know the exact reason for our pond failure, but we can at least do something about the oxygen levels.

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!

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.

You will need to find out what kind of soil you are working with. Is it clay, clay-loam and sandy loam are best for holding water. You will want to avoid limestone, shale, sand and gravel—they leak. Except in our case since the gravel is actually part of the ground water, which is ideal. You can ask around to find out if your pond will leak or will hold water year round. You don’t want your pond to dry up in the middle of the summer.

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.

  1. Check out "platinum lake managment"they have a video on YouTube, shows exactly what's going wrong with your pond, you've taken care of the aeration part but they have these pellets that dissolve dead organic matter and muck in the lower half of your pond that cause bad bacteria and rotten egg smell, really interesting video apparently the pellets are fish safe 🙂 please them check out I really think that video will help your pond out! I would hate to see those trout fish die !

  2. your gonna need at least two aerations in that pond only because of its shape its long !
    one aeration pump split, how much is that system !ask him to send you a longer hose you need another 10 feet max

    I don't have a pond but if I had land and some of it was at higher elevation, I would consider this. Is your land subject to agricultural run off? You may need to figure out how to deal with the extra nutrient. I would google "agricultural runoff hyperaccumulator." You will have to remove that nutrient at the end of the year. You may wanna consider growing something that can be consumed by you or livestock. Or maybe compost worms. Grow some duck weed to shade the fish, it will also absorb some nutrient.

  4. not going to lie, its blowing my mind how this guy of all people doesnt( or didnt ) look up or understand how a pond is a shitty, unnatural life for a fish. fish live in lakes, not ponds. ponds need special care and upkeep, if not its just stagnant, dead water

  5. Why not stock some fish that thrive in that environment??? I don't even then the trout will reproduce in there

    Add a bunch of gar and sun fish they should look after themselves!!
    Keep up the good work my friend

  6. You really gotta get some other water plants, like Lillies, Hyacinth or Duckweed. That’ll help reduce your algae problem. I also LOVE cat tails, but they can also dominate a pond and outcompete other plants, which isn’t desirable.

    Also, another possible problem of concern is Farm runoff. I don’t know if there are farms around your pond, but they can cause problems such as fertilizer and pesticide saturation which can lead to Algae blooms and fish die off.

  7. Good video I need to do this with my pond but I’m sure this system is not cheap. I guess I’ll stick with catfish, bass, bowfin, and other hardy species for the time being.
