These fish will not feed on a commercial feed, but with a good supply of Fathead Minnows and Hybrid Bluegill they will grow at a rate of 1/4 to 1/2 pound per growing season.
There are two types of crappie that are most common, the Black Crappie and the White Crappie. The Whites are much more prolific than the Black. White Crappie in most cases, take over smaller ponds and lakes. White Crappie should never be stocked in impoundments less than 100 acres. Black Crappie can be stocked in ponds as small as 1 acre without any concern of overpopulation. Since they don't propagate to the extent that the White Crappie do, you will find the average Black Crappie will grow faster and get larger than the average White Crappie.
The Black Crappie is a fish that offers an excellent sporting quality, and are even more enjoyable on the table than they are in the pond. A large Black Crappie is by far the most attractive sport fish you can have in your pond. When properly managed, this fish will add color to your pond or lake not found in most waters.
Coppernose Bluegill are ideal for ponds where forage is a concern because they are usually 80% female. Coppernose Bluegill are aggressive but remain a low impact fish since their mouths are small.

When it comes to vegetation control in your pond, grass carp are a cost effective, efficient solution to many types of problem vegetations. To achieve desired results these fish should be stocked at a rate of 10 per acre of vegetation, or increase this rate by 50% in spring fed or otherwise clear water impoundments where sun rays penetrate much deeper than normal. These fish are available on our route trucks or for special delivery.
The Grass Carp will not reproduce, or harm the reproduction of other fish in the pond. They eat 3 times their body weight in moss and vegetation per day. The vegetation is sucked through the mouth to the "teeth" in the throat, this way the pond is not muddied by pulling the moss out by the roots. The rooted vegetation will continue to grow back while the Grass Carp keep it maintained. Their average growth rate is 2-5 pounds per season. These fish will need to be re-stocked every 5 to 7 years on the average.

This fish is the number one stocked sport fish today. The Hybrid Bluegill is crossed between a male bluegill and female green sunfish. This particular cross produces a fish with the large mouth of the sunfish and the aggressiveness of the bluegill, which enables the fish to grow faster and larger than common bream. It will feed on a commercial feed with annual growth rates of up to 1/2 to 3/4 pound per season. With a good management program in place these fish can reach weights of 2 to 2 1/2 pounds and exceptional fish will reach the weight of 3 pounds or greater!
