Coppernose Bluegill

(Lepomis macrochirus)
The Coppernose Bluegill
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.
