    Why would you think that was a good idea?

  • printaboul

    I guess Houston knows it but, I heard one inch of fish per gallon. Better ask around but. .. That's I followed when I had my aquarium.

  • printaboul

    Wow, is it a close pond. In Canada you wouldn't be allowed to intruduce a non-native species

    All of the great lakes of Africa now have only Nile perch in them which have eaten up all of the native fish talapia now grows every where but there home lakes.

  • UniversityUTube

    You do realize birds eat fish eggs, fly to other watersheds, ponds, streams etc and deposit those eggs where many will hatch if previously fertilized & then those non native fish invade natural habitats of native fish. Brilliant lack of foresight. The road to hell is paved with good intentions.

    A traveller to the usa almost gets the electric chair on the airport when you have an apple with you. But its allowed to put non -native fish out in the pond Any bird that try to catch one but drops it in a canal Or the eggs get out the pond into other waters Many non-native animals invest and replace native animals

    Awesome! I really enjoyed fishing when I was young my grandfather had 2 lakes and 6 ponds on his farm. I’ve kinda lost the fishing bug. I was spoiled as a kid with the amount of fishing I could do on his property.

  • JonnyG

    Non native fish? So there is no way for the fish to get into the local streams?

  • Bill Hauck

    It is time for Houston to get his own fishing channel, like which tackle to use and how to tie knots. let him take some of the money to buy and show more info

    Why tilapia though? Shouldn't they be eradicated?

  • Rob Kholar
    Rob Kholar

    Tilapias are great fish. In the Third World the feed them chicken shits and their flesh is considered a health hazard. They regularly sell them at Chinese supermarkets in Canada, just pick one out and some guy who can't speak English will smack it against the head for you. The only thang worse than tilapia is basa imported from Southeast Asia. Apparently villagers have their outhouses just above the fish ponds so that nothing goes to waste. Good Luck!


    That would be a great pond for Houston brother. Have a great week much kindness and happiness always joe/Louisiana 🌈❤🐕🐕🐕🐕🐕🍷


    Awesome guys do you have a pumping system to keep the water flowing. An green grass that grows but don't take over.your pond. Great fishing.this summer. But a water feature in the middle of the pond would be so cool.

    The idea of stocking with non native fish, that invites trouble. Look at all the places good example Florida snake heads, peacock bass.

    The Pond King kit boat could use a small covered dock with couple solar panels. Keep the battery charged and protect it from UV, LOL Houston's tank will become shiner/ minnow breeding for feeders.

    Houston you are one lucky boy there is nothing better than growing up the way you are. You are being taught a great work ethic and how to take care of yourself and animals. I believe you are going to be a fine young man.

  • 5winder

    Does your son watch the Fish Whisperer?

  • BigBuckOutdoors

    You guys should make a home made bass boat for a video that would be cool and then a big contest to see who can catch the most bass

    Mr Daniel, don't be surprised if some of the Tilapia doesn't survive a few winters, if that happens,you'll find plenty of 5 plus pound Tilapia in the pond,if the cold wouldn't kill them off,you'd have a smorgasbord of those things,also the older Houston gets,the more it looks like you birthed him yourself, he looks exactly like you.

    Talk about an education and at the same time tremendous bonding between a father and son. Good stuff right here building a young man of character. If this could only be duplicated a millions of times over!

  • Nirrrina

    I can't wait to see Houston's new trough pond. If it's successful maybe you could add a second trough. Then put a clear pvc pipe between them so as the fish go back & forth we can see them. For a pop of color Houston could add some underwater LED light strips. Color changing would be cool too. Really hoping you show us how you build it with Houston. Now I want one too. But probably not a good idea for an apartment.

  • Nirrrina

    'Brick of Fish' used to be a favorite meal my mom would make. Basically fried tilapia fillets. But they froze it in a rectangular brick shape. So I always called it brick of fish as a joke. Well until they stopped selling it in that shape anyway. Probably no where near as good as fresh from the pond tilapia.

    Earl dog ain't the brightest bulb in the box is he, lol. Sorry DJ! Daniel, as one of the "old" viewers that remembers Houston's plastic tote pond from before, I still think you should build a stone/concrete pond and let him fill it with Koi and other fish. He still seems to carry a strong interest in it, so it could be a very good thing for him and maybe even develop into some sort of career( not to mention, more footage for your channel!). Ka-ching. Win,win!
