Building a pond from scratch is a challenging endeavor. Jim Crowley talks with Nate Herman, owner of Herman Brothers Pond Management, about how to properly construct a pond based on your fishing goals.
The Mapping Network offers pre-construction and post construction GPS mapping of lakes. Mark fishing hot spots, isolate premium fishing depths, and discover prime habitat where trophy fish are likely hiding. See the example below of a custom built lake with key structure points labeled.

One of our lake construction projects is underway! Our clients had the opportunity to build two new ponds, the first of which was completed in 2009. Great little pond, growing largemouth and bluegill as we speak. The second pond is under construction now. With the help of our partners at The Mapping Network, we designed a 5-7 acre pond based on the available acreage. Unfortunately there were many cubic yards of fill that had to remain on site. However, creating a contour map with the required slopes and more importantly the necessary access and structure for boat and bank anglers alike, made the process easier for the contractor and has our client very excited about a great new pond. Plenty of structure has already been added. Liming, stocking, and littoral plantings will take place later this year.
New lake construction is well underway using the design created by Quality Lakes and The Mapping Network

GPS Lake Mapping Saves Time and Money by Accurately Locating Problem Areas
It is critical to know the exact acreage and depth range of your lake to make sound management decisions in the battle against invasive aquatic vegetation. Understanding exactly where to apply treatment not only saves time and money but more importantly provides a better opportunity to control aggressive, non-native aquatic plant life. Precision GPS lake mapping conducted by The Mapping Network utilizes highly accurate procedures and equipment for data collection. Utilizing sub-foot accurate GPS units and hydro-acoustic depth-sounding equipment, our team logs data points for extremely accurate location mapping. Hydro-acoustic depth sounding equipment measures depth with unparalleled accuracy. Our clients are able to accurately isolate zones where invasive vegetation is likely to occur or is currently growing. Proper management decisions provided by local lake management professionals will assist in controlling or elevation unwanted aquatic vegetation.
