We have a decent amount. Not at all what it USED to be. The apple snails have hit us pretty hard. I would say easily less than half of what we used to have. If this keeps up, I don't see us staying out there too much longer. It will only get worse, and I think Apple snails were ignored by officials for the most part. Maybe there isn't a solution??
Last season was also the first year we saw grass carp in the ponds. They were always by the houseboat and in the canals but never in the ponds.
One of our ponds is doing great with vegetation but whatever reason (it's the biggest and cleanest of all the ponds) we never and I mean never do good in there. I've hunted it five times that I can remember and never fired a shot. All while at the same time the front pond is smoking ducks. Now 5 times isn't much but the two ponds are 400 yards apart. Something is odd.
