My pond is about over 5 feet deep.
Usually summer time a little lower but most time over 5 feet.
I want to dig my water lotus tubers.
But I don't have any tools to get them.
Anybody have a idea easy to dig them?

what are they growing in? mine easily pull out of the muck at the bottom of my pond. Only tools needed are hands.
Can you lower the depth of your pond by pumping or siphoning the water off?
