Building Better Bass
We take care of both new and existing lakes and ponds, so whether you are starting from scratch or have an existing lake or pond, we will help you achieve your goals. Our professional team of biologists at Blessed Bayou goes in depth to manage your lake or pond through state-of-the-art electro-fishing surveys, water quality tests, and written management plans that are both cost effective and tailored to your goals. We consider Blessed Bayou to be a one-stop-shop for all of your fisheries needs. From pond and lake design to fish stocking and from fish feeders to fish feed, and everything in between, we’ve got you covered.
Pond & Lake Design
We can help pick the best location and start designing the pond or lake of your dreams.
Water Quality Management
Water quality is one of the most important tools in fisheries management. Knowing the chemistry of your water can make your lake more productive and balanced.
Aquatic Vegetation Management
Our biologist are skilled in controlling any kind of aquatic vegetation problem you may have.
Diffused Aeration Systems
By simply adding a diffused aeration system to a lake it will improve water quality, create healthier fish, and help reduce algae growths. Aeration systems are considered insurance for your fisheries investment by greatly reducing your odds of having a fish kill. Oxygen drives the entire ecosystem under water. Without additional aeration you are dependent on oxygen from wave action and photosynthesis from plankton and other vegetation. During the warm season water stratifies and the deeper the water the less oxygen is available, which reduces a fish's ability to use a large portion of the lake.
Enhance the aesthetics and improve the health of your body of water with a fountain. We carry Kasco fountains that are engineered to deliver reliable and efficient performance, and even feature marine-grade stainless steel components for protection in harsh environments.
Directional Fish Feeders
It is important to keep fish feeders full and operating throughout the entire warm season (March-November) with a small, pelleted feed of 40% or higher protein. High protein feed is by far the easiest and most effective management tool. Forage fish on a high protein feed will gain weight and reproduce at much higher rates, which in turns adds weight to your bass population. We proudly carry Triton feed.
Mossback Artificial Habitat
Unlike forms of natural habitat, Mossback artificial habitats that we provide have the benefit of not breaking down over time, are designed to reduce lure hang-ups and snags and are specifically designed to promote the growth of periphyton (beneficial bacteria and algae).Placing cover near feeders are a great way to get the most benefit out of the cover. Cover near feeders creates an environment suitable for baitfish production and will create ambush points for Largemouth Bass, helping them gain weight more rapidly by minimizing movement.
