Coppernose Bluegill the forage base of choice for many Ponds and Lakes

Coppernose Bluegill is ideal for ponds and lakes that have Bass or other large predators.  They are not a Hybrid so they reproduce and when stocked properly will give your bass an abundance of food.  Bass need a solid food source during their growing season.  It roughly takes 5lbs of bluegill to give you 1 pound of bass.  So when stocking you need a minimum of 5 up to 10 bluegill to 1 bass when stocking. Coppernose Bluegill can feed on commercial feed.  Coppernose can grow up to 1/4 pound per growing season.
