Default Need some help with something here

So here is the deal guys. The MWR here at the Navy base is trying to get a fundraiser together that benifits youth. We are wanting to have some sort of pond filled with freshwater fish species. When I say pond I mean something like those blue plastic ponds that you see at bait shops about 10 or so feet wide. As far as species and size of fish go i do not care as long as the fish are big enough to bite the hook. This will hopefully promote good fishing technics for young children and hopefully interest them in something that we all enjoy so much.
So here is what I am needing right now.
1)some sort of "pond" that is small enough to be portable yet large enought o hold fish
2)a connection to someone with a fishery, hatchery, or fwc. Someone that can help me out with the fish.

Either respond on here or call me at 770 864 3312.

Thanks so much for the time and interest.
Catching fish and starting trouble....never heard those two together before.

I love the idea the pond in front of the board walk in FWB has a youth tourny I think in June. I think if you tried to throw a bunch of pin fish in a good size wading pool water quality temp and just the stress would not have a positive out come. However in June thru September any bank beach or dock will have LOADS of pinfish and pogies. You might even get a lucky red fish or black snapper. Best wishes

When the academy sports opened here in Knoxville TN they did something like that. It was so much fun for the kids. They had a cheap above ground pool looking thing full of big nasty cat fish. They would let kids fish for 15 minutes at a time and at the end of each hour who ever had the biggest fish got a trophy. My 5 year old caught a monster!

Maybe the state hatchery at Blackwater/Milton.
I can explain it to you but I can’t understand it for you.

Sports Academy on davis had one a few years ago. It was in their parking lot. looked like a giant pool full of catfish. They might give you an idea where they got the fish from..
