At retired NASCAR® driver Tony Stewart’s Hidden Hollow Ranch, Aquatic Control handles the lake management. The goal at this location is to manage the existing lake and develop it into a Trophy Bass Pond. The first step was adjusting the water quality using Calcis® to achieve desirable aquatic conditions to grow healthy, strong and active fish.
In this Calcis Chronicle, Aquatic Control’s Lakes and Special Project Supervisor, Leif Willey, introduces some of the team members, goes to their lab and walks through the process and science behind how they evaluate this pond and apply Calcis to adjust the water quality to manage this impressive private fishing hole.
Bill Squire owns a plot of land in North Carolina. Through years of mining and digging for dirt, Squire’s land had a giant hole that, through years of collecting rainwater, formed into a pond. Squire saw this as an opportunity and sought to turn this newly formed pond into a fishing location.
