Nostalgia at Herman Park Lake
I imagine most fishermen have memories of their favorite fishing hole. Well, at least the fishing hole that was within traveling distance for a kid. For Joe Doggett that pond was Hermann Park Lake. The 3 ½ acre pond was where he learned to fish.

The pond was clear and green with mats of coontail, flocks of ducks, swarms of stunted bluegill sunfish, and the occasional largemouth bass. About 10 years ago the City of Houston drained the lake and enlarged it as part of an overall plan to expand the zoo and park. Although twice as large, the new lake looks much the same, but has been stocked with bluegills, bass, and channel catfish.

Fishing is restricted to those 13 and under and 65 and older. Luckily for Joe, he is now 65 and although decided to fish again at his childhood fishing hole. He hooked a 7 inch bass and decided to catch and release, although Doggett didn’t release him back into the pond; he released the bass into a 30-gallon fish tank at his townhouse.

Verona New Jersey to go Phosphate-Free? - Phosphates enter waterways from human and animal waste, phosphorus rich bedrock, laundry, cleaning, industrial effluents, and fertilizer runoff. These phosphates become detrimental when they over fertilize aquatic plants and cause stepped up eutrophication. If too much phosphate is present in the water the algae and weeds will grow rapidly, may choke the waterway, and use up large amounts of precious oxygen (in the absence of photosynthesis and as the algae and plants die and are consumed by aerobic bacteria.) The result may be the death of many fish and aquatic organisms.
