I saw the sneak preview and am glad JV got this out there for everyone to see! Again JV this is excellent. I sent it out to my work and family members this weekend. We almost look like we know what we are doing! To anyone and everyone that is involved thank you. Makes you proud to be part of a group of like minded people. And like I always say if fishermen were good enough for Jesus they are sure good enough for me! I've started a note to Ray Sasser. Told him when he ran the note for us in the Spring that I would follow up when we met our goal. Well we didn't meet our goal- we exceeded it! We will have an even better lake to fish in a few years. Let's keep up the good work. Matthew Carroll thank you for the input!

Here's a write up recap of Thursday 7/11. This is meant to be educational and for many of those dedicated RHSA members who wish to be there but could not make it.

RHSA crew got to the ramp first at 12:30pm. Temperature was around 99.9 degrees. No winds smile

Then the TPWD arrived about 1pm (Very timely!) and unload their boat.

Then the Keo Fish Farms delivery truck came at 1:05pm ! Two long hoses being dropped to the lake, one for pumping Arkansas water out of the tanks and one for intaking Texas water so the fish can get acclamated to Texas. smile

RHSA ordered 45,000 of these fiesty little fellers. In three years they will be 18 inches and mean! smile

There are eight (500 gal) tanks on the truck, four on each side. The four circles are the tanks' release valves.

The TPWD boat has two large trash bins with airator in each.

Re: RHSA Stocking Video !!!!!! - 07/15/13 04:19 PM

We transport them to the boat with 5 gallon buckets

Camera man, JT, and JV got invited to release the first batch. Total of 8 tanks and 8 release trips.

SeaFox Steve and wife Lisa are excited about the event and capturing memories!

GoingGreen Carson follows closely with the video and camera.

Larry Leanahorse follows closely on the SeaPro

JV releasing a bucket at a time while slowly moving. Then empties the remainder. Carson, and SeaPro also got to go on the following legal dumping trips grin

All 45,000 beautiful fingerlings were safely released by 3:30pm. There were about 15 RHSA members present but many had to return to work and about seven of us were there through out the process. From left to right: Sleeping Tiger, Lenahorse, Rafe Brock, TPWD lady, JV, Going Green, SeaPro, Andy from TPWD. smile FilletMaker was there the entire time too but had to return to work smile SuperDuck took this pic smile

It was tripple digit hot, hard physical labor, no winds, we ran out of water but I did NOT hear a single complaint from anyone. Truly amazing! I am so honor to be a part of this great organization! Amen!

More pics...

Great Video John. We have a ways to go to get to our goal for 2014. Please visit our web site and donate what you can towards the next 45,000 Hybrids. Thanks to everyone! Pat

Re: RHSA Stocking Video !!!!!! - 07/16/13 12:02 AM

Enjoyed the video and pics. Very educational! Did Parks and wildlife or Keo Fish Farms have any estimate as to how many of the 45,000 will survive to legal (18 inch) size?

Re: RHSA Stocking Video !!!!!! - 07/16/13 12:14 AM

Dennis, I did asked that question to the the Marine Biologist while on one of the release trips. He said our fingerlings have 50% mortality rate and the fry recently stocked by TPWD have 75% mortality. I've asked this question to several "experts" in the past and he has gave me the most optomist numbers.

My honest opinion is no one really know the true numbers. Its almost impossible to set up a true test environment in size and with all preditors on land, air, water, etc. I just rely on faith and I know you do too, Dennis smile

Excellent video JV. This has been an incredible fund raising experience, but more than that it is a great story about all sorts of people who are givers and supporters of something we all loving - fishing. I will post this up on the site tomorrow.

Good job on the video JV.It was nice gitting to talk to you a little while Fishing on Fri.Sure would have like to have made it to the stocking.Thank you guys for trying to capture the day with the pics,and videos.

Re: RHSA Stocking Video !!!!!! - 07/16/13 01:53 AM

@Todd: I agree it certainly is faith regarding spiritual matters, but God has charged us to be stewards of this magnificent spaceship called earth, and He expects us to use our noggins to do it. This means science is our tool, and I have confidence the marine biologists have learned via science and technology ways to manage and measure things like mortaliity rates of the fish. As an engineer I know the depth of technical specialty practiced by professionals. Thus, I'd be surprised if the marine biologist's estimates were not reasonably accurate.
