Could Not Be More Pleased 

Logan Cowan has for the last year or so been the person I work with on my ponds. I could not be more pleased with his work. He works hard, is always on time, he calls and keeps me informed, he explains the pros and cons of treatment alternatives, etc. I could go on. Bottom line – this young man is an asset to your company. Keep him and promote him. Thank you for all you do for me.

Proof Is In The Pudding     

testimonial-fisheries-weston.pngPaul Dorsett and the rest of the team at SOLitude have done an absolutely wonderful job in helping us to create Lake Willis! In just a few short years we have gone from having just a few baitfish and perch, to catching a nearly 9-pound bass (our new record). Now if we could just have more time to fish as recommended, we could take out the 300 fish that need to come out. As far as we are concerned, we followed SOLitude's recommendations and our fish have averaged growing of 2 pounds per year...proof is in the pudding! Thank you, Paul. I look forward to seeing you and your team again soon.

In Awe of SOLitude's Knowledge     

fisheries-management-electrofishing-05.pngI want to thank you all for coming out to Fort Pickett and for an excellent report and meeting. SOLitude’s knowledge about the industry and all of the different species, habitat and needs was impressive. Between Brandon and myself, I think we were both sitting there with our mouths open in awe of SOLitude’s command of the subject. You all really know your species and their requirements. It was excellent!

Educated and Helpful Team       

testimonial-pic.jpgI wanted to take this opportunity to say how amazing Cory Smith has been with
my new ranch. I have two ponds that have never been managed and he has helped me put a plan together. We have added fish, fish feeders and even planned changing the size of the lakes. He has been an amazing asset to have. He loves his job which makes it enjoyable to email and text him to ask questions. He is a huge help and always provides an amazing amount of information. I appreciate all his help! He is an invaluable asset to your team and me!

What A Great Company!      

When looking online for a new fish feeder, we had unpleasant experiences with two local fisheries. I decided to call a feeder manufacturer in San Antonio, who recommended SOLitude Lake Management. They were terrific! Paul Dorsett called me directly and was so kind and helpful. He arranged a feeder to be delivered and set up for us. Although Paul was out of town, he sent his “ace” out, Ryan Young. Ryan and Alex Harrison were efficient, answered all questions and were very nice young men. Paul even followed up to make certain that everything went smoothly. What a great company! Customer service is what it's all about these days and SOLitude Lake Management knows exactly that.

Excellent Pond and Fisheries Management Advice!  

Marc_Daymude_Private_Landowner_Cameron_NC_two-hand_bluegill_10.15_cropped_cAfter I had to drain my pond in 2010 to fix the dam, I took the opportunity to start from scratch. I did online research and subscribed to Pond Boss Magazine and restocked in 2011 with the equally important goals of creating a trophy bass fishery and a "guaranteed catch" bluegill pond for my eventual grandchildren. I contacted SOLitude to begin feeding the bluegill and to begin an electroshocking program to help guide my long-term management. Two years after my original stocking, we electroshocked for the first time. I was very surprised to find that the predator to prey ratio was dangerously lopsided and my pond goals were headed toward failure. Based on the electroshock survey and Dave Beasley's advice, I restocked 10,000 more larger bluegill. Now I have 3 feeders feeding 3 times a day while the water is warm. My friends call me when they have "Daddy day" because they know they can come to my pond and their kids will catch bluegill bigger than my hand until they get tired of it. After 4 years, the bass are reaching 6 pounds and in an hour enough heavy bass can be caught that would beat a full-day's fishing on any lake in the region.

Dave Beasley has always been available to answer questions and give prompt advice. Without SOLitude and Dave Beasley, despite all my research, my pond would be in an ever-worsening downward spiral. Now SOLitude and annual electrofishing surveys to keep me on track are a permanent part of my pond management plan.

Thriving, Fish-Filled Ecosystem 

Yates_Property_Middleburg_VA_HunterP_09.15_cIn one season, SOLitude Lake Management turned the two lakes on my Virginia property from dead, weed-infested, eyesores into thriving, fish-filled, ecosystems - and they have maintained them as such ever since!

Our Fish Are Thriving

Goodkin_CVille_Filamentous_Algae_2_Acres_BEFORE_3_AaronC_06.15_cropped2_c-1I wanted to let you know how pleased we are with the results of the algae treatment. We noticed a huge improvement very quickly, and at this point the pond looks really, really great. Also, the fish are thriving - some of the bass are over a foot, and the blue gills have also gotten big. We are just thrilled.

Thank you so much for your responsiveness.

Our Club's Fishery Is In the Best Condition Its Ever Been 

7_pound_largemouth_bass_being_measured_Cohoke_VA_Misc_DaveB_2014_cOnce again, thank you to David Beasley and SOLitude for all your help at Cohoke Fishing Club. Our hydrilla problem is practically non-existent now. The fish survey you completed for us, the recommendations on slot sizes, and the stocking and feeding program you developed are producing outstanding results. Our club's fishery is in the best condition it has ever been! Your presentation to our stockholders at our annual meeting was extremely well received. We are getting ready to enhance our fish attractors as suggested.

We appreciate that a management program was developed that fits within our budget and that you are available to talk with us when we have questions. We look forward to continuing our association with David Beasley and SOLitude.

SOLitude Helps Community Define Vision & Achieve Goals

Brookside_Fishing_Tournament_06.13_19_cAs the manager of wetlands and open water for my community, I work with SOLitude Lake Management closely. They have helped us define our vision and achieve our goals. Every wetland area and body of water has different uses and different needs. SOLitude understands that and ensures those needs are met all the while keeping the budget in mind. We have annual fishing tournaments and they come out and talk with the anglers, explaining what we've done during the past year and what our future steps will be. Management of wildlife and waters is an ongoing and long term commitment, SOLitude understands this. They have a dedicated staff that not only manages these areas but also helps educate their clients.
