I was wondering if anyone on this board had any suggestions on keeping water open in an impoundment besides a bubbler. Right now I have on sump pump going, but it just doesn't seem to keep a very big hole open, although I watched two wooducks try to get in there last night. I was just thinking about getting a couple more sump pumps unless someone has a better idea. Thanks, Poon

I am going to try the bubbler hooked up to a generator this year to see if I can keep our spot open. Ice kills us every year and I want to get into those late season birds!

Tip I got was to use thre fence posts and point the bubbler staright out, not up so it keeps a much larger area open. I dont knwo if you can rig your sump pump to do the same but it might help move more water around and open the hole a bit.

I know the bubbler wil work, but they aren't cheap!! The way they told you to do it is the correct way, and you will kill ducks if you keep it open. As for the boat option, my ponds are only about an acre in size with standing corn, so that won't work either but good idea for big water. Just trying to find a cheap solution for this year. Poon

Fence post, trolling motor and deep cycle battery will keep a good size hole open running all night at a low setting.
