Trophy Pond Management
Serving all of Tennessee
Call to Speak with Us About Your Needs Today!
Having a pond on your property in Tennessee means you never have to go far to spend a relaxing day fishing. However, that’s only if you can keep it fully stocked with fish that are worth catching. This is where hiring an experienced, local fish stocking service can be the key to getting the most out of this feature in your backyard. With our headquarters right here in Nashville and decades of experience, there’s no better place to turn for pond stocking in Tennessee than Trophy Pond.
Our founder, Walt Foreman, has been managing private ponds and lakes here in the state since 1987. He’s been on the job longer than any other private biologist working here. With a Master’s Degree in Fisheries Science from the University of Florida, he brings the specific expertise necessary to keep your waters stocked with only the best and most appropriate species for this part of the country. However, that’s not all — we also provide other services such as pond construction, pond repair, and pond water management.
What We Can Do for You
Whether you have one in the yard or on the farm, pond management is important if you want to get the maximum enjoyment out of it. We can be your complete resource for just about everything you need. Our main areas of expertise are:
Fish stocking: The experience and scientific know-how of our founder means when you buy fish to stock a pond from us, you’ll get the most robust fish that will be guaranteed to be the best fit for the environment. Stocking the wrong species or overstocking the right ones can have disastrous consequences, but we know how to strike the right balance so you always enjoy your time on the water.
Pond construction and repair: Anyone with an excavator can dig a hole, but we have the proper equipment and knowledge to ensure your new pond won’t leak or start deteriorating. By getting the job done right the first time, we save you thousands of dollars and a lot of headaches.
Lake management: Experience matters when it comes to managing a private lake. Although some companies will send a biologist with only a year or two under his or her belt to help you, we bring the real know-how.
Everything From One Source
Other services we can provide for you include:
- Aeration design
- Guided fishing
- Liming and fertilization
- Real estate services
- Weed control
Why Choose Trophy Pond?
Farm pond stocking is too important to trust to the inexperienced for numerous reasons. Every body of water is an ecosystem, and understanding nature’s intricacies is crucial for ensuring your lake or pond has the right amount of fish and the right kinds. We have the in-house knowledge base to match you with the ideal species for your climate, geography and goals. Get in touch with us today to learn more or get started.
