    Hi Mike,
    I live in the Gaspe pennisula in Quebec, I constructed a dam on my woodlot in a Gully that has under ground natural spring water that is year round and only above ground on my lot ,I am planning on stocking with speckled trout 8 to 10 in. in 3 week,s, The lake is about 100 by 200 ft.I am worried about the predetor,s like the blue huron ,I read maybe a crocodile head decoy may help?
    The other animal,s around here are mink,,otter,weasel,raccoon, I intend to live trap these and displace ,any helpful idea,s would be appreciated. Thank,s Ron

    Hi Ron,
    keeping away the predators is a multi-level strategy, so keeping a gator head will help but I’d still look to other methods to help round out a complete plan of predator control. Some of the predators you have, like mink, are very difficult to control and can certainly do some damage to your fish population. One of my favorite methods is keeping an outdoor radio tuned to a talk station running by the pond. The sound of human voices will be a big deterrent ot most predators who will not be so fast to enter an area where human voices are being heard. Try that and let me know how you do! Mike
