    Default Catching koi in the wild??

    Whats the best way to catch wild koi with out hurting them? I heard a rumor today of a small pond that someone dumped koi in and they took over. I think the pond is roughly 20-24 feet squared and is only about 6 feet deep. Someone told me if i went there at night with a bright light they will come to the surface.
    If there is koi in the pond it would be neat for them to some how end up in the fish pond in my garden :p

    How large is your pond? Koi can grow to be little cows of the years, and should have at least 1,000 gallons, and 500 per additional Koi.

    Be sure the pond is not on private property. that would be trespassing and theft. if it is and the owner does not care maybe you can get premission to catch them.

    The land is wooded area that is sold to a developer. I contacted the city. The pond will actualy be burried over. I checked all that as well because koi seem to be quite expensive around here. The lfs had 2 that were little over the foot mark with a 600-700 dallar price range stuck to them.

    My pond is roughly 4 feet deep 6 feet wide and 10 feet long( Well its my parents but same thing) Theres 1 koi 1 buterfly koi and 3 cold fish in it now. I was thinking if i could catch some small koi i could replace the gold fish and sell a few to the lfs store to help found my 60 gallon. Plus i know a few others who would be intrested in some koi for there ponds.

    I am more intrested to see if they are even there before taking any. I didnt think they would be able to survive on there own or handle our cold wether. Plus its only a rumor and im kinda excited about it.

    As I get older I find myself thinking about the hereafter - I go into a room and then wonder what I'm here after.

    I hope you are able to get the fish out. It sounds like they don't have a bright (or long) future if not. However, here, if the property has been sold to a developer, then that person or corporation is the owner and where the permission must come from. Not the city.

    Good luck. I hope you get them!

    I drove by today, Seen some people cutting down trees and got the number to the developer. Just no answer.

    Jill i know... I contacted to the city to see who owned the land. The city couldnt give me the name of the developer for some unknown reason. If he says no then thats all i go do. Its worth checking it out.

    Yes it is. Good luck tracking down the developer and catching those fish! I hope you are able to pull it off.
