Message from Harold Crosby:
Last September I met with a biologist from Alabama and he recommended that we add 200 grass carp which I did. I’m afraid the diving birds and eagles got most of them. Some also went over the dam.
I plan on adding another 100 grass carp this coming August. (Note the biologist said grass carp do not eat fish nor their eggs.)
The biologist said to release all bass over 14 inches. Those are our breeders.
I also added 17 Christmas trees to the lake and 5 fish structures out of pvc pipe. The lake bottom is bare and we need places for fish to hide. I plan on adding at least 20 more fish structures to the lake but it takes about 3 hours to make each one. Any volunteers?
Also, we have an algae problem and hope to spray for that soon.
We have had a problem with people fishing in the lake that do not live in Lakeview Estates. Please call me, Harold Crosby, @ 943-8099; Roger Moore @ 284-0631 or Jerry DuBose @ 978-3069.
We have a very serious problem with the silt that is entering the lake and it is getting worse. With the cleaning of the ditches and new houses that are coming, the problem will become a big issue in the near future. It will affect all property owners and property values if this serious issue is not addressed soon. I have suggested that the LVE HOA start saving funds for dredging.
