Fish Stocking Information

Spring/early fall is the best time to stock fish due to higher oxygen levels in the water. These seasons are typically the best times of the year to stock your pond with fish because the weather is mild and the water temperature is pleasant, making transportation and acclimation easier on
the newcomers.


Keep a 3-prey fish to 1-predator fish ratio. This ratio is a great rule of thumb when stocking your pond. Predator fish are largemouth bass or channel catfish, while prey fish would be bluegill or red ear sunfish. Another option is adding fathead minnows to feed the predator fish to allow the prey fish to get established.


Recommended fish stocking quantity per ½ acre:

  • Qty 100-250 1–2″ Bluegill
  • Qty 100-250 1-2" Red Ear Sunfish
  • Qty 50 3–5″ Channel Catfish
  • Qty 50 1–2″ Largemouth Bass
  • Qty 500-1,000 Gambusia

What Is Pond Turnover?

Pond turnover can happen at any time of the year and can be deadly to fish populations. This is the brief explanation: have you ever jumped in a lake during the summer and felt that very cold water on your feet? What you are experiencing is the sharp temperature difference caused by lake stratification.

Stratification is a natural process that happens annually in most ponds and lakes in Central Florida. Stratification has many side effects, which are integral to the dynamics and overall health of your pond. The best way to prevent pond turnover and fish kills is through the proper aeration of your pond.

How Fast Do Bass Grow?

The average length of a 1-year-old largemouth bass varies from about 2 to 8 inches. They can reach 9 to 10 inches in the second year, but it’s usually in the third year.

Largemouth bass eggs hatch in 2 days at 72 degrees F or five days at 66 degrees F.
